Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
His Highness knows the words unspoken
His Highness knows crash you cry
He feels you in his bones

Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
His silence may seem pretty chilling
His violence may seem awfully cold
But oh, you're such a foe

Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
He wants to make a show of you

When you belch your little truth,
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
When you belch your little truth,
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

His Majesty may send his minion
His Majesty's now being rude
And oh what other beast would let his eagle feed on you?
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

His Holiness would ignore your secret
He feels you from his throne you fool
And wants to fill his bones with you

Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

(Check it out)

But hide, his Highness can hide the stupid pride
And how you wounded him,
The way you belch your little truth
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

Hide, his Highness can hide,
His Highness can hide the stupid pride
Belch your little truth
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

When you belch your little truth,
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
When you belch your little truth,
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
When you belch your little truth,
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
When you belch your little truth,
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude
Nothing like a tyrant's gratitude

    I believe this song to be about data leaks or revealing of dark secrets, and how nations and governments react to them. Normally, when the world hears of a nation doing heinous acts in secret or hording information that should be public... The reaction to the person who spits this information out for the world to hear about gets a less than cozy toss in jail for war crimes, or something else crazy like that.

    That's just my take on it though.
