about

Inspired by the Isaac Asimov short story "The Mayors" (1942).

lyrics

From within, without
The wolves are at my door
Since those barbarians found
That ancient weapon of war

We taught them to believe
A holy empire we conceived
To bind them, to Anacreon confine them
The temple priests have taken hold
On Seldon’s track there can be no turning back
Onward into the unknown

Our magic holds in rapture
The weak of mind
Theocracy gives solace, refuge
From the regent monarch’s tyranny

A bloody tyrant
Bent on conquest of our kind
We will show no clemency for his crimes
Against science and mankind
Our temple priests have taken hold
Artillery, his weapon and his creed
We hold the loyal hearts of all those who believe

Within the lifetime of your children the cycle falls again
Every thirty years a crisis, will this ever end?
We gave them power, still they thirst for more
Technology their prize
Now the god-king comes of age
There is one path to take

They find themselves defenseless
Forces fallen to their knees
Against the throne, revolting
Men of faith and piety

We taught them to believe
A holy empire we achieved
We bind them, with Foundation we align them
Our temple priests are in control
Taught them to fear, that our vengeance always near
Crisis averted Hari Seldon’s ghost again appears
Foundation’s near
