I saw his face, on every channel
His slogans in all the papers
I heard people, repeat his words
I saw them shouting, his flag in their hands

I saw him making promises
I heard him talk about life
But I saw his fingers too
They were crossed behind his back

Darling of the TV screen
Manipulator of the purse strings
Master of the spoken words
Jackal with connections

Worshipped by the masses
Leader with ulterior motives

(All talk and no do)
(Is neither a good offense or defense)
(Get with it boys and girls)
(Your house needs to be put in order too)

His slate, clean as snow
Covers over his dark past
To be in league with workers
Pictures he loved to see

But I read in his eyes
Promotion reality
He played his part to the end
Shot leaving a shambles

    My InterpretationI can't believe that there are no comments on this song, one of the best Thrash metal songs ever. Coroner is one hell of a band, too technical, yet aesthetically pleasing, my interpretation of the song is that it talks about how politicians pretend to be quite righteous, and then turn out to be false, corrupt, and will end up to miscontrue the general public, they deceive them by giving promises and such, then they turn out to be liars. It's quite simple.
