I Want To Conquer The World

Lyrics | Track Details

Hey brother Christian with your high and mighty errand
You're actions speak so loud I can't hear what you're saying
Hey sister bleeding heart with all of your compassion
Your labors sooth the heart but can't assuage temptation
Hey man of science with your perfect rules of measure
Can you improve this place with all the data that you gather?
Hey mother mercy can your loins bear fruit forever?
Is your fecundity a trammel or a treasure?
I want to conquer the world and give all the idiots a brand new religion
Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil
Promote equality in all of my decisions with a quick wink of the eye
And a "god you must be joking"
Hey mister diplomat with all your worldly aspirations
Did you see the children cry when you left them at the station?
Hey moral soldier you've got righteous proclamations
And precious tomes to fuel your pulpy conflagrations
I want to conquer the world expose the culprits and feed them to the children
I'll do away with air pollution then I'll save the whales
We'll have peace on earth and global communion
I want to conquer the world
