The Time for Caudillos

The time for Caudillos is over; Ceasars, Tsars and Kings,
We don't need them anymore.
We don't need more fearless leaders, holding knives to our dreams.
We don't need more warlords, keeping power over victim screams.

The time for demagogues on horseback is over, should be fading into silence.
We don't need them anymore.
We don't need to hear propaganda, we need truth and justice and fairness.
We don't need dukes, stars and barons, who build empires on evictions, theft and fraud.

We don't need to mythologize our leaders, they are bloody human, like the rest of us.
