Lyrics
I am the messiah and the king of kings
And I lead the empire and the emperor sings
But I know where I can came from, the land of weapons and fists
I understand the power of song, and that dreams are made of this
For this is rock n roll
I've got a rock n roll soul
And we are freedom fighters

Shine on, shine on
Before the music passes to you
Shine on, shine on
Before the music passes through you...
Would you walk on a crusade and swap your riches for poor
Would lose all the money you make, because you know what life is for
Well I know where I came from, the land of souls lost and won
I understand the power of dreams and the power of song

For this is rock n roll
I've got a rock n roll soul
And we are freedom fighters
For now...
Shine on, shine on
Before the music passes to you
Shine on, shine on
Before the music passes through you...

(You make up these feelings that are so contrived to make you feel in love to make you feel alive, to give a little reason to your pointless world, while you're meanwhile forgetting you're a stupid little girl)
