Once in Power by Jason P. Burnham

It smelled like the status quo, looked like equality
Everything stood in their way
They broke down the walls, burned the world to ashes
Used the guillotines, severed the heads of the beast
But militarism, the brutality, the violence all stayed
They smelled like the status quo, mirrored the façade
And nothing changed except the faces
