Of Days When Blades Turned Blunt

This song is by Asphyx and appears on the album Deathhammer (2012).

According to this calendar
Nine thermidor, year two
Age of the national razor
Humane mass-murdering tool

Execurtioner's grinning
As the axe comes down
Swift smooth separation
Off goes another crown

Thus kings and queens convicted
Like Marie-Antoinette
Her mug too in the basket
By pulling the lunette

Sentenced by thousands
Under "la grande terreur"
A dark tale of represson
And the beheadings that occurred

Pre-eminent symbol
For blood the masses roar
Indomitable justice
The crowd demanding more

Square of decapitations
Place de revolution
Where severed faces murmur
Of days when blades turned blunt
