about

See - Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols, or How to Philosophize with a Hammer, 1888. Chapter 1: Maxims and Arrows

lyrics

THE KNIFE THRUST OF THE TYRANT COMES
FROM THE TONGUE OF OUR CLEVER SONS
WHO MAKE MUMMIES OF ALL HISTORY
AND BUILD PYRAMIDS AND GOLD BUILDINGS
AND LAY WASTE TO ALL DUST AND FLESH
WHO SPEAK OF SHADOWS WITH EVERY BREATH
AND DREAM UP SYSTEMS SO EFFICIENTLY
JUST TO COVER FOR ANXIETIES

SO LET ME LEND YOU MY TUNING FORK
TO TEST TEST THE TENOR OF A REASONED REMARK
TO UNCOVER WHAT LIVES BENEATH
HOT RESENTMENT AND COLD DECEIT

NEED YOU ASK WHY IN YOUR BREAST
YOUR CRAMPED HEART THROBS WITH UNREST
YOUR EYES SPEAK SO FLUENTLY
IN TONGUES OF TERROR AND CRUELTY
SO WHY FLEE FROM NATURE’S CALL
TO WARM MEALS WITHIN PRISON WALLS
I GUESS ONE MAKES A BED COMFORTABLY
TO SPEND ALL THEIR DAYS SOUND ASLEEP

THERE ARE MORE IDOLS THAN REALTY
TAKE UP THIS HAMMER AND YOU WILL SEE
MY EVIL EYE SCANS TO AND FRO
TO FIND NOTHING BUT THESE EMPTY HOLES
THERE ARE MORE IDOLS THAN REALTY
A TRAGIC CASE IT MAY SEEM
TO CHOOSE A BURDEN THAT ONE CANT BEAR
AND BE CRUSHED BEYOND ALL DISREPAIR
