The Lyrics

The world is changing, I can feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. . It began with the forging of the great egos. Three were given to the Athletes, the fastest, bravest & fittest of all beings. Seven to the Actors. Nine egos to the Politicians who above all else desire power. In their egos was bored the strength and will to govern each group. But they were all of them deceived for another ego was made. One ego to rule them all.....
There's an actor who's sure Oscar glitters with gold
And she's vying to be Lord of the Egos
And if she gets one she knows
If auditions are all closed her new agent can get what they came for
Oooooh gross returns on part two as she's vying to be Lord of the Ego

The writing's on the wall, but he still walks tall
because the polls say he's tops in two ridings
The elections will bring he hopes for in spring
one more chance at a trip to the White House
oooh and the votes are numbered
oooh and careers are plundered

There's feeling he gets trying to pass the urine tests
And his spirit is dying for cheating
You'll have to take the 'roids if losing you'll avoid
Say the voices of those who stand coaching
Ooh and his heart thundered
Ooh as the blood tests are blundered

But the industry of cool will be foiled by the fools
Then the insane will lead us to smiling
And freedom takes the place of the dead old office space
And the sidewalks will echo with laughter
Does anyone remember laughter???

If there's s hustler down on Stephen don't you believe him
He's already hidden the red queen
Yes there are two shows you can flick too, but what will you do
There's still time for you to read a book
The jokes are swirling and they don't end in case you won't bend
The insane's calling you to join him
Hey buddy you are in a reel rut, director said cut
Your ego signs for you things you can't cash

And as they do just what they're told
Souls signed away in blood and stone
There's a manager we all know who's time has gone he's got to go
He's going to reap just what he soughs
But if you listen to your heart fear and delusion start to part
His fate does not await us all. To be a rock and not to roll
And she's vying to be the Lord of the Egos
