The Nil Estate

Churches, altars, Castle thrones

Instruments to maintain compliant drones

Divinely inspired

then criminally conspired

Encoded in sacred Tomes

 

Keep them illiterate and barely fed

and priests to interpret for their daily bread

Sacrilege to invent

to insure that they repent

any impurities in their head

These Kings, they ruled by rights divine

Fruit of all labors that they may dine

upon the finest that the land can give

No concerns for how others live

 

Came the rival gods, and with them new priests too

and scribes to write the version approved for public view

This god, that god, from which authority to derive?

Do you believe it really matters to people only half alive?

 

The state, their courts, their shiny network screens

Declaring a new gospel as they tell us what it means

Not for you to decide what is or isn’t true

It is their very function to explain it all to you

Sullen, then grown angry, they know they’ve been eclipsed

now that all the folks at home have their own copy of the script
