"Fall of the Sycophants" is a track of the Soulfly album Conquer, released in 2008. This song has a low-tuned flamenco intro, speeds up to repeated thrashy riffs, then goes slower with melodic guitar and a guitar solo, and then returns to thrashy riffs. Its solo is remarkably like that of the song "Escape to the Void" from the Sepultura album Schizophrenia. The outro featuring tribal drumming and kora was recorded from the bank of the Nile River in Cairo.

The song lyrics speak about wanting to destroy the necropolis in Cairo, called the City of the Dead. The lyrics has alternate lines of 'I'm talking ...' and 'Destroy this fucking place'. Due to the frequent use of the latter line, this song can alternatively be titled "Destroy This Fucking Place".

Lyrics Edit

I'm talking revolution
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking retribution
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking devastation
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking execution
Destroy this fucking place

I'm talking confrontation
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking murdernation
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking desperation
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking desolation
Destroy this fucking place

A thousand years of war and hate
Now you bow down in the city of the dead...

I'm talking terminate
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking full of hate
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking bloodbath
Destroy this fucking place
I'm talking doomsday
Destroy this fucking place

The rites of war brought down the walls
The fall of the sycophants...
