Words of fire lit on a wall beside
Loudspeakers sparking a match among crowds
Gathered to save the country, the homeland,
From enemies within, hidden in shadows
Of the paranoid mind.

Many years and lives pass before the rash
Flames burn out in waters deep with defeat,
And a land is awoken to the ash
Of an ideal that was.
