You are the tyrant, you are the oppressed

You are the criminal, you are the victim

You are the doctor, you are the patient

You are the teacher, you are the student

You are the eater, you are the food

Yet you are none of these

Do you get the roles blending into unity?

Have you not played all these positions in the dream of a play of life?

Not all tyrants wear funny clothes

They stand up in front of masses

Bellowing a song string of lies

To totalitarian drumbeats

Are they monsters wearing crocodile smiles?

Yet, take a look, are they you in another form?

What hurt did you experience to become your present persona?
