Trying to guard the fortress of a king they've never seen or met
But all are trained to murder at the first sign of a threat
We work to support and protect and defend the rich, the rulers, even though we don’t know them and shouldn’t care about them. We internalize the sense of defending the system, even though it doesn’t help us, so we become violent even towards our brothers and sisters who threaten the system.
