lyrics

All powerful warrior leaves fire in his wake
Neither left nor right
Hang up all the threats
Sent down from the heavens adorns wall after wall
Kleptocratic legacy
Stealing in a nice way

Chorus
Statue crumble statue burn
Eagle flies high in a leopard skin hat
Carry her home to the palace of Gods
Oh Leopold Leopold

Ego armies of metal
Play the heat of the coltan mines
Muzungu blinded by the aliens on TV screens
Genocidaire brothers
Lets bathe together in a mineral bath
World vibrations hammered senseless
By enslaved hands

Shadowed blankets of eyes
Hide tainted bodies in sanctuary
Shoot their sacred flowers
Watch the garden of Eden die
Lay her down on forest floor
Take a turn with your weapon of war
Oh father oh husband
Take me back
You know I’m not to blame
