lyrics

Here is a new leitmotif for the age of disgrace
so the sad and dark shadows can pull the sun off their face
and die down, die down, die down
throwing themselves on a furious mountain of snow.
Remember now, remember now
that maybe we do know the right way to go.

Oh, to get swallowed and swirl away
into my dreams of what's good.

Take your place in the theatre
empty seats running in circles and then
someone jumps in waving their hands in a misfit's rage,
being caged, they can't tell when
the right time has come to rip apart stars
and throw them off cliffs by a shivering sea
that's a soup of fake lives
crying mouths forming "o"s
lamenting everything they used to be.

Oh, to get swallowed and swirl away
into my dreams of what's good.

I am the president
I'll make a declaration of myself
I am the rightful king conquering everything of me on the shelf

At the consoles of rocket ships
thousands of candidates teem toward the black.
And, I among them, holding my wife and son
program the one I'm in not to come back;
streaking on course, bound for a colony
where all my fantasies sell out the first night
to a fandom of brothers in a frenzy of ritual tabloid blood
spilled for discovering what's right.

Oh, to get swallowed and swirl away
into my dreams of what's good.

I am the president
I'll make a declaration of myself
I am the rightful king conquering everything of me on the shelf
I am the emperor
I control all the jewels I will display
I am the universe creating the work of my God in one day.
