This track is a rallying cry to all fans of Marconi's Voodoo, and its message is more relevant than ever. Don't let capitalist greed take away your life! Fight back! Join the REVOLUTION!

lyrics

The lies that move our motions
Enshrined in holy ghosts
Have led us to profound contempt
For the things we need the most
And you who stand before me
Great agents to our cause
You must show me what your souls are worth
Reclaim the soul of Mother Earth

When the Voodoo people scream, revolution!
You'll feel the fire of a thousand hearts burning like the sun
Unveil your enemy
Their downfall makes you free
When your blood runs thick with poison, retribution!
Claws in my throat can't hold back the cry that shakes the walls of hell
Unveil your enemy
Their downfall makes you free

And in the dark skies above us tower their values
Enthroned on billboards high
And with serpent tongues they hiss and sneer
Make sweet the taste of lies
And the bitter hand round your heart
Gently closes, seals your doom
But this warrior has awakened
And his strength will lift you from your tomb

When the Voodoo people scream, revolution!
You'll feel the fire of a thousand hearts burning like the sun
Join the fight with me
Join the war with me
When your blood runs thick with poison, retribution!
Claws in my throat can't hold back the cry that shakes the walls of hell
Join the fight with me
Win this war with me
Win this war with me!

[instrumental break]

Never in my life have I been so strong!
Never in my life have I been so strong!
And for all those years, and every life silenced by power, I'll say it again,
Never in my life have I been so strong!

And the Voodoo people scream, revolution!
You'll feel the fire of a thousand hearts burning like the sun
Win the war with me,
Strong is my prophecy
When your blood runs thick with poison, retribution!
Claws in my throat can't hold back the cry that shakes the walls of hell
Win the war with me!
Strong is my prophecy!
Win the war with me!
Strong is my prophecy!

And the war begins...
