Video: In the Highly Nuanced Life of the Conqueror

We’ve started working on new songs! This is one of my favourites so far! Words arrived spontaneously while Dave played the fourth or fifth piece of music he’s been working on.

In the Highly Nuanced Life of the Conqueror

In the highly nuanced life of the conqueror

As you can imagine
all the features of life
your whims are manifested
by peons who do your bidding
or maybe you can’t

It’s not something I think about at all
I don’t know about you
It’s not an area of interest

World domination power over others
I could care less
but I guess
there are a lot of things that happen to us
we seek revenge in escape to fantasies
big and small

Where we wield the sword, shoot a gun, hurt someone
now they’re dead
then you move on to the next one
Ya ya ya ya
you’re gonna move on to the next one
and the mayhem continues
and are you feeling better as you move across the landscape
killing, maiming whatever pixels get in your fucking way
or turn the page in the book where the damsel is in distress again
and some guy on a horse is gonna ride by and grab her
and swing her up onto the antiquated saddle thingy

And they ride off and I guess you’re one of them
you’re the guy , you’re the girl, you’re the rescuer, you’re the victim
or sometimes a little of both
a little bit of each
at the same time
Ya ya ya ya
Are you feeling any better?

When you’re living out this violence
that you’ve ingested
instead of
finding other ways and other things to do
Ya ya ya ya
Are you feeling any better
about yourself and any others in your life
that you just can’t seem to talk to?
Ya ya ya ya

In the nuanced life of a conqueror
on a white horse, a black horse, some kind of tank thing
with a gun that’s shooting people that aren’t really people or so you say
or so you say
Ya ya ya ya

Are you feeling?
Are you feeling?
Are you feeling?
What the fuck are you feeling, man?
What the fuck are you feeling?
What the fuck are you feeling?
Are you feeling any better?
I don’t understand.
Ya ya ya ya

Are you feeling any better?
Now that you’ve slaughtered the lot of them
and they’re lying there dead
Ya ya ya ya
they’re lying there dead

Are you feeling any better?
Are you feeling any better?
Are you feeling
any better?
