King Of Straw

We owe so much to the enemy
If not for them where would we be?
We spoke of what was hidden
That was against the law
Tonight we burn the king of straw

I'd give my eyes to light the way for you
Swallow all your lies to show my faith in you
When the veil was lifted
We spoke of what we saw
Tonight we burn the king of straw

He'll only endure
If we burn him
Burning ensures his return

Name the fear, some people say
And the fear will fade away
He once made us tremble
He once inspired awe
Tonight we burn the king of straw
