Iron Maiden – The Legacy Lyrics 11 years ago
It's a condemnation of war profiteers. The sort of people that work for Lockheed Martin and Haliburton.

It's also about the pundits and fearmongers who scare the shit out of people, keeping them divided amongst themselves and eager to buy any bigotry or war those in power want to sell them.

They could have worked for the good of mankind, bringing us all together as a species, and ensuring our long-term survival. Instead, they selfishly chose short-term profit over long-term peace and stability, and the problems they helped create will live long after they finally die.
