Lyrics

There’s a new tyrant in this place, hasn’t been that long since we chased
The last one away, the last one away
It happened at night while we were asleep, We thought things were alright, if maybe not great
Now there’s a new tyrant, a new tyrant, in this place

And he’s demanding, he is maddening
There’s not a day that goes by I don’t think about the times before
Says he’s got the answers, but he’s all bluster
Oh, there’s a new tyrant, a new tyrant, in this place

This is how they do it, isn’t it?
They find the fear, they find the frustration
They say they’ve got the answers and they are the only one

That night he pulled a few others aside, told them that they were being slighted
Told them with him, they would find their due respect
Now the children can’t go out to play, he says it interrupts his sleep, keeps him awake
Oh, there’s a new tyrant, a new tyrant, in this place

And he’s demanding, he is maddening
There’s not a day that goes by I don’t think about the times before
Says he’s got the answers, but he’s all bluster
Oh, there’s a new tyrant, a new tyrant, in this place

MmMmMmMmm-OoooOoooOooo

And he’s demanding, he is maddening
There’s not a day that goes by I don’t think about the times before
Says he’s got the answers, but he’s all bluster
Oh, there’s a new tyrant, a new tyrant, in this cave
Oh, there’s a new child, a new child, in this cage
Oh, there’s a new tyrant, a new tyrant, in this place
