​Brotherhood of Barbarism

This song is by 1917 and appears on the album Génesis & Horror (2002).

Victims that were sentenced
To the cruel caress
Of the flames of redemption
Humiliation and tears
That looked for justification
In the most absurd confessions

Their art of cruelty and pain
Reigned in the name of their god
But fraud's cold poison
Killed the serpent itself

A brotherhood of martyrdom
That punished the thought
With a sacred court of madness
A myth and its law
That were born to murder in grace
And to glorify the rashness

Their art of cruelty and pain
Reigned in the name of their god
But fraud's cold poison
Killed the serpent itself

Caught and lost in their own hell
Of ignorance, terror and faith
They created their unclean empire
To cultivate masked ambition
Betrayal and degradation

Drinking their utopian dreams
As if they were harlots of a holy love
They soaked their mysteries with evil
To cultivate masked ambition
Betrayal and degradation
