"Impetus" as written by and Fallon/sult/maines/gaster....
Justification, the means are the end
Doctrine and dogma, I will not relent
This world a garden in need of such weeding
This world a minefield in need of such sweeping
Impetus
This ministration without full consent
Fire and brimstone, I will not relent
Just as all good things must come to an end
I will administer as I see fit
I will not relent
I will not relent
I will not relent
I am driven
Impetus
I am driven

    General CommentIt looks like it is spoken from the point of view of a war-mongering leader. "The means are the end" most likely meaning that the way of getting his way is the end of life. We know that Neil writes often about war-mongerers, i.e. Blast Tryrant, so it seems to fit. Looking at any given line it seems to fit well.

    General CommentI think it's about fascism or as cape kid said a tyrant. Impetus as the song implies is to move and attack. the person is imposing there will to 'Sweep' and 'Weed' the world.
