Standing strong and tall, outside hear their call:
"Tear down the wall, upper echelon, blackest of them all"
Sold us into sorrow, you love to watch the weaker ones crawl
Don't pity our cause for the laws you've disowned
Pagan prophecy has come to be
Thrown molotovs mark the fall of a throne
And dead philosophy, we're not to be owned

Paid slaves heed to the master's voice "Get back to work"
The scales offset without a choice: debts of the spirit

T"Tear down the wall, upper echelon, blackest of them all"
Sold us into sorrow, you love to watch the weaker ones crawl

Paid slaves heed to the master's voice "Get back to work"
The scales offset without a choice: debts of the spirit

Tear down the wall, upper echelon, blackest of them all
Sold us into sorrow, you love to watch the weaker ones crawl

No chance of your own conscience turning the tide

    General CommentEchelon is a type of war formation, in a the form of a steep. Molotov was a soviet politician who was most known for being the main Soviet signatory for the non-aggression pact.

    Obviously the song is about WWII. I love THA, I'm so glad all the trendies haven't taken hold of them yet..

    General CommentWow...WW2, that's what you got out of it? okaaay that's cool. Anyways.....The upper echelon is something that most societies have.....a certain group or types of people that are considered more.....prestigious then "normal" folk. Like gorvenment officals, genrals of armies, polictians ect;. Vyacheslav Molotov, while an intresting individual, isn't what molotov is refering to, Molotov is a makeshift weapon....or fire bomb. They are are frequently used by the masses in riots against police baricades or other forms of physical oppresion. The song it's self is a call to arms against your oppressers or the "upper echelon". It's a song of rebellion hence the phrase:"breaking, Tear down the wall, upper echelon, blackest of them all".
