Song Description

To a riff that sounds like lost souls wailing in a desert canyon, a powerful man of war woos a beautiful woman. Shiraqin is given a terrible choice, to love this man or watch her entire village destroyed.

Story Behind the Song

This is an allegory.

Lyrics

Shiraqin
By Dan Kilian

You love your mother you love your father
You love your brothers, you?re gonna love me
All your friends, the old men, these screaming nuns,
I?ll set them all free
I?ve got my soldiers; my soldiers got the order to shoot
Sealing off the exits, what happens next is up to you

Sleep with me or the whole town dies.
Sleep with me, Shiraqin
Sleep with me or the whole town dies.
Sleep with me, Shiraqin

I?m not a bad man, no twisted madman,
Still my commandments, they must be obeyed
My sovereign duty, show a little cruelty,
Still for your beauty, my hand has been stayed
I?d never force you, but I will enforce my right
This could be a black, bloody day, or you could find true love tonight

Sleep with me or the whole town dies.
Sleep with me, Shiraqin
Sleep with me or the whole town dies.
Sleep with me, Shiraqin

I?ve got my soldiers; my soldiers got the order to shoot
Sealing off the exits, what happens next is up to you

Sleep with me or the whole town dies.
Sleep with me, Shiraqin
Sleep with me or the whole town dies.
Sleep with me, Shiraqin

I love you I love you

I?ll be Citizen Supreme, you?ll be my Queen
I?m gonna take you out of this place. You?re coming with me, Shiraqin

I love you I love you
I love you I love you
Shiraqin
