Those involved in the struggle towards a utopian ideal often fail to understand the importance of personal behavior and ethics. Their violent tactics corrupt and undermine the lofty goals behind the struggle to seize power.


The young men march on shining paths.

Breathing new life. Insight grows dim.
Cutting them down. Clearing the land.

Whose anger did you voice? And did you walk away?
And did you feel you want to rule the world?

The shining path, it beckons. A new life stirs inside.
You’ll never buy hegemony.

The decadence unfolded. The silence gnawed within.
You dreamed of foment and of war.

You call to question training. Your father’s scriptures swell.
The gallows beckon you no more.
