The Lyrics

To understand this parody, you will want to know a bit about myself. I am AlphadiosThe2nd, I come from Malaysia, and I live in Singapore. Well, I have faced all kinds of troubles here, but one thing that sparks me off is how Singaporeans treat others like how whites treat blacks - I can't help but feel that democracy is declining, and the people around me are impure. Thus, I wrote this. It was part of an initial collection of parodies (no, I'm not posting any more parodies) I did, but I modified it when the time came for me to do so.
I'm holding on the road
Got me six feet underground
And I thought about the world
And the way that it got me now

You tell me that you hate me
Then you stepped on me and frowned, and said
"You touched me and you raped me"
Injustice's grappling on me now, I said

That it's too late to transmogrify, it's too late
I said it's too late to transmogrify, it's too late

I've had a go at life, at the earth
At the world of mine
And there's words imprinted there
But those words really aren't inside, yeah

I mouthed out "democracy", but that's not what it has been, instead
Impurity is rising
Heaven tells me Hitler's back
But I'm not ready

'cos it's too late to transmogrify, it's too late
I said it's too late to transmogrify, it's too late

"Democracy involves freedom, purity, equality and justice. The ideal state where equal power is held by the community, where justice is done when needed, where all men are created equal, where we have a pure world, free of despotism, dictatorship and injustice, as it was a hundred and ninety-one years ago. Why did all the freedom, purity, equality and justice have to disappear?"

It's too late to transmogrify, it's too late
I said it's too late to transmogrify, it's too late

I said it's too late to transmogrify
It's too late to transmogrify

I'm going off the road
Walking six feet off the ground
