From the song 'Cockroach King' by Haken.

The lyrics make it seem like 'Cockroach King' is some character who has fooled the protagonist of the album "The Mountain". But, I am still wondering about the choice of the wording. Why was that "Con" named as "Cockroach King"? Is there any special meaning to it?
