The Great Mandala Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

So I told him that hed better shut his mouth
And do his job like a man
And he answered "Listen, father"

"I will never kill another"
He thinks hes better than his brother that died
What the hell does he think hes doing
To his father who brought him up right?

Take your place on the great Mandala
As it moves through your brief moment of time
Win or lose now, you must choose now
And if you lose youre only losing your life

Tell the jailer not to bother
With his meal of bread and water today
He is fasting til the killings over

Hes a martyr, he thinks hes a prophet
But hes a coward, hes just playing a game
He cant do it, he cant change it
Its been going on for ten thousand years

Take your place on the great Mandala
As it moves through your brief moment of time
Win or lose now, you must choose now
And if you lose youre only losing your life

Tell the people they are safe now
Hunger stopped him, he lies still in his cell
Death has gagged his accusations

We are free now, we can kill now
We can hate now, now we can end the world
Were not guilty, he was crazy
And its been going on for ten thousand years

Take your place on the great Mandala
As it moves through your brief moment of time
Win or lose now you must choose now
And if you lose youve only wasted your life
