For the Good of Humankind

Can you see me hanging naked from the tree?
I was sacrificed for everyone to see
Threefold is the birch-tree where I hang
Beside me hangs the body of a woman

We are heroes turned to tyrants by the chaste
They are legion watching closely in distaste
Resentment forms the soul of every man
Liberation is the crime for which we hang

We are sentenced for the good of humankind
We are murdered for the visions of the blind
Others will emerge from our descent
For perfection reprimanded and condemned

In the sunset of another fading day
We are tarnished condescended and displayed
There is poison in the heart of humankind
Unforgiving is the sentence of the blind
