this is a test of confidence, the results we intend to measure your reliance.
i took the remains from the sale of your estate and fed them to the lions.
we are the hollow men, indicted and groomed to be the next providers.
i searched the place and i burned at the stake the effigies and idols.
oh martyr, without reason or a follower.
this is the best performance that we’ve ever witnessed, including saints and soldiers.
i could have left but i sent them you instead. the curse is i grow older.
oh martyr, without reason or followers.
