DHI (Death And Horror Inc) - The Idiot Parade (Sardonic) Cover ArtworkOfficial music video for the industrial song ‘The Idiot Parade (Sardonic)’ performed by ‘DHI (Death And Horror Inc)’ taken from the EP ‘The Idiot Parade’.

Taken from the official press release: “The lyrics are a direct condemnation of some of the most detrimental forces that we’re facing today,” says Vicar. “It’s an unapologetic protest against fact denialism, conspiracy theories, anti-science activism, mob rule mentality, and white supremacy. So, the way the vocal sequences were shot — in a claustrophobic, in-your-face manner — had to match the unreserved tone of the words.”

Lyrics:

In a forgotten space where the talk keeps it on the dumb-dumb
Sucking an air recycled, and repellant to all but utmost blockheads
Gnashing
Writhing
In your ordure

A third-rate bolthole banished to the outskirts
Oh, such grandeur of the divine supremacy you espouse
A-bleating
A-bleating

Beneath the undergrowth
Camouflaged by shadow
Following depraved directives
Of The Idiot Parade

Fall in line with useless ruination
Stand up, salute, and join the Idiot Parade
A pale mob of senseless desperation
Stand up, salute, and join the idiot
The idiot
The Idiot Parade

Here they come again
Bearing teeth and cheap flags in a rabid procession
Overgrown hobbledehoys playing cowboys and hatred

The stench of it all
A pathogen, a plague from glass towers to the backland
A pawn’s reenactment of wars he’ll never understand
Repeating
Repeating

A sadistic dissent
A parroting of propaganda
Marching on to oblivion
With The Idiot Parade

Fall in line with useless ruination
Stand up, salute, and join the Idiot Parade
A pale mob of senseless desperation
Stand up, salute, and join The Idiot Parade

Stand up, salute, and join the idiot
The idiot
Fuck this fascist charade

In your fear of reason
Fear of the other
And perversion of truth

You’ll heed the droning of the simpleton strongman
A hollow religion of games, battles, and lives
Brought to rust

The Idiot Parade
The Idiot Parade
The Idiot Parade
