Kiss Me, Son of God Lyrics

I built a little empire out of some crazy garbage
Called the blood of the exploited working class
But they've overcome their shyness
Now they're calling me Your Highness
And a world screams, "Kiss me, Son of God"

I destroyed a bond of friendship...

    Holy sh@t, this song is about someone with too much power who is well aware of the destruction they create by their own hands yet they still get praised. They are a venerated figure that REALLY doesn't care about their followers. The beauty of this song is, I think, it englobes/applies to many different positions of powers: economical, spiritual, political... Yet still be the same. I love this song!

    Seems like it's a pretty serious indictment of an evil, evil political figure... if I only knew which one...

    People ignore or are unaware of his evilness, and praise him anyway.
