The moment the mist revealed your disguise we knew we were poisoned
you never reached, you never saw beyond the walls
with your incurable disease
we smell a future
burned at the stake
we hear voices from a nameless ghost, urging the land to become what
they fear most
a breeding ground for the unkempt masses
a stalking ground for the chosen ones
set free by the hand of their own line

And you brave brave rapists say that no civilization ever fell from outside
that didn't first fall from within, well let me tell you something
the recipes they never faltered
in an instant they cried Cassava

This has begun, the task at hand will be passed on to the next
come up from the river and land on their backs
skin them alive and cover their tracks
no one could see this coming, not yet
no one heard a sound
except the twist of and hourglass turned upside down

And you scared scared honkies say that this was all a big misunderstanding
well this was no misunderstanding, this was a crime
the recipes they never faltered
in an instant they cried, Cassava
and when the ground shook beneath the traitors
the winds they howled Cassava

Settle into foreign regions, adopt a scheme of plunder
for what will come to you in the night is the child that you all bore
small and vicious it will approach the camp like a victim of your heathens
and when you pull the skins over your last minutes
the serpents will have their revenge
not for all the ships at sea, or three as an admiral takes
the righteous search the mines
and surface with the shakes

We will never have the numbers, we cannot crack the code
the viciousness comes from far and wide and never leaves the fold
we leave only this behind, it is of us and it bears our mark
you will never sleep, you will never find those riches you all desire
we've hidden ingredients with instructions
inside the seed we've planted your collapse
inside the seeds we've planted your demise
and when the tides they rose, and the greed had sunk, and the corpses surfaced
the gods they cried, Cassava
