"Pravus" as written by and Fredrik/kidman Thordendal....
Drooling floods of Led
Armed with distorted belief
Sharp munition spat from our minds
Malignancy-rounds, automatic fire

Black, acidic bile
Seeping wounds of shattered souls
Still not pissing out fast enough
To quench our thirst for it to bleed us dry

Vile, ever-menacing intent
Repulsive belligerence shot from toxic minds
Blatant disregard for all but self
Proudly flaunting the depravity of a race condemned, malign

Iterate, repeat these my words
Recite the mantra of late
I will corrupt and impair
Vitiate, dispirit, debase, violate

Souls born with hateful intent
The deceitful spawn, descendants of lies
By the poisoned nails of history stung
If granted the will to injure
If granted the will to harm
The blades of hurt inexhaustibly swung

    General Comment"Pravus" is Latin for "depraved." Keeping that in mind, the fourth stanza is likely the most telling: some people in our society (or perhaps mankind in general) have descended into moral bankruptcy, reveling in the harm they cause to others. The song's frenzied pace perfectly parallels the lyrical theme of malevolence.

    IMO, the key lines indicating the subject matter are those who are born into power, the Aristocracy, a worldwide phenomenom, in many cases linked by ancient bloodlines, in all cases sharing an idealogical lifestyle that descends into moral/ethical (and quite often, physical) debauchery as evidenced by the institutions they've set up & controlled, the wars, genocide & environmental destruction they've promulgated and the abject selfishness with which they conduct their lives.

    General CommentThis is Electric Red told from a drones perspective, with the evil doings even more clear, coming from the mind of the teller.
