History's Repeat (TOS: Patterns of Force)

from Song Trek by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

We had sent you off to observe a whole new world
We arrived to find genocide and hate
We investigated this new second third reich
You’d become their puppet of the state


One race oppressing another is not a peace
Why are we seeing history repeat?

We revived you and you told us how you helped them rise
From anarchy to an efficient reign
You tried to bring them order while preventing sadism
But your underling took charge and war was waged

One man taking charge of others is not peace
You thought you could stop history's repeat

You had come out with the truth and cancelled invasion
Your rival lashed out but he had been beat
In his absence we’ll create a partnership of worlds
Your words will lead us to a broader peace

Absolute power corrupts absolutely
And so we’ll witness history’s re-

Absolute power corrupts absolutely

And so we’ll witness history’s re-
History's re-
History's repeat
