Lyrics:

In ancient Egypt in a distant past
A king ascended his glorious throne
Like his father named Amenophis
A name in which Amon’s glory shone
But soon madness came over the king
Selecting one god to be the only one
Echnaton

Trying to destroy his people’s faith
Destroying shrines of many gods
Forbidding their worship and rituals
Succeeding by force against the odds
The king invented the monotheistic lie
Changing his name to fit his crime
Echnaton

The world’s first religious persecutor
Obsessed by his theological aberration
He neglected his duties as a king
And thus suffered his whole nation

(chorus)
Mad pharaoh, mad pharaoh
Defy his legacy, curse his name
Mad pharaoh, mad pharaoh
His just fate eternal shame

After the mad pharaoh’s death
Which came to him at early age
The dead king called a blasphemer
His people returning to their ways
But the seeds of monotheism were sown
And thus the damage had been done
Echnaton

We still taste the fruits of his madness
After many, many centuries have gone
Souls of wrath shall ride with holy fire
The war against his heritage will be won

(chorus)
