Privilege from birth, abhorrence of work, obsessed with sovereignty
Aristocrats claim an exemption from the standards of democracy

A secret antipathy to justice and equality
And a tightly constrained definition of who is free

Old regime, smoke of history
Liberty still wafting in the breeze
The new aristocracy just smells like the old regime

They think that they can alter and sway which version of freedom reigns
If everything is subjective then what good is truth anyway?

A plutocratic strategy or technocrat conspiracy
Or a vision of utopia that only the besotten can see?

Old regime, smoke of history
Liberty still wafting in the breeze
The new aristocracy just smells like the old regime

An unabated tendency to tyranny is still in place
And the ancient nobility's complexion differs just in name

Old regime, smoke of history
Liberty still wafting in the breeze
A new season dawns with ominous prophecy
Yeah the new aristocracy just smells like the old regime
