... And soon his fame spread, they all knew he was to blame
The smell of blood was fresh, so Descarte left this place

[Descarte:]
"My plan has come undone and pain didn't cure their mind
They are effigies of men, they never dreamt, they never wondered"

"Without respite I'll go on, failure won't thwart my schemes
Under compulsion their minds will conform with mine
And I will build the Empire of Mind"

This genius porter, this bold villager
Would unfold his most devious plans
And soon he'd claim the throne

[Descarte:]
"I have to charm the princess now, I'll mesmerise her, make her a puppet"

... And she was powerless to battle Descarte's charm
The princess was struck by his aura and his mind
Their marriage took place with befitting resplendence
And one day oddly enough, the king died a sudden death
And... Descarte became the King...

[Descarte:]
"Without respite I'll go on, failure won't thwart my schemes
Under compulsion their minds will conform with mine
And I will build the Empire of Mind"

" I hold the power now, you will all obey me
I'll burn down temples, churches, gods
These things hold men down to earth
Your spirit should transcend the barriers
Of your animal past and your superstitions
My academies will provide knowledge to everyone"

Under compulsion men were instructed to study the arts
Descarte's schools acquainted them with the secrets of every science

And yet they were unhappy, they remained fools

[Descarte:]
"Despite of my efforts, they rebelled against me, they're doomed"

[Chorus:]
"Beauty is revealed, stars will soon bleed"

[Descarte:]
"I know, you all seek the same: short-term happiness
You can't see beyond your blind eyes and so you'll stay cursed"

" Once I had a dream, to bequeath my knowledge to these people
But damn! They're but slaves to their fake lust and they'll never fathom me"
