A rhapsody!
Contestants in disguise!
A nation of desire,
But who will win the prize?
The people stand united,
Reluctantly aligned...
Copying and lying
Are the favorite past-time!

You've got a chance
To confront the world today!
Desperate romance
Is the curse of castaways!
What good is skill
If you don't make it to the dance?
Despite circumstance,
You've got a chance...

Common life, depicted on afternoon TV...
It's spiked to give the Miserable a vogue identity!
Hate your neighbors,
Cheat your friends,
They don't discriminate...
Popularity and Fame don't care if you're a reprobate!

You've got a chance
To confront the world today!
Desperate romance
Is the curse of castaways!
What good is skill
If you don't make it to the dance?
Despite circumstance,
You've got a chance...

I'm tired of all this
Shakespearean misinformation...
I wanna win the game!

You've got the right intentions,
But who's got time to think?
You've got a noon appointment,
You've gotta hit the links!
You're talking in the stratosphere,
You're curled up on the floor...
With such a wealth of information,
Why are you so poor?

You've got a chance
To be relevant today!
Desperate romance
Is the curse of castaways!
What good is skill
If you don't make it to the dance?
Despite circumstance,
You've got a chance...

You've got a chance
To confront the world today!
You've got a chance
Though it seems so far away!
Don't you believe what the Wise Men have to say...
Despite circumstance...
You've Got A Chance!










Well, it was Punk-Fifteen in the morning...
And it was time
To stand my ground...
And as the gawks and stares bombarded me,
You know, I didn't even hear a sound...
No one gave a damn
If I was there or away...
If I died and went to Hell,
They'd throw a party on my grave...
And they'd all say,
"This kid is just a fool... he'll never be cool!
They might as well just ship him off
To some other school!"
Plain destitute...

Just a little too guilty, just a little too soon...

That day was just like any other day...
No work, and no pay...
I knew that Paradise was some other place,
And I'd get there another day...
I will find it, before I expire...
Cause I've got The Desire...

Well, it was Punk-Fifteen in the evening...
And it was time to set the town on fire...
I saw my boots and my hair,
As reflected in the mirror,
Reveal a street kid named Desire...
I didn't give a damn,
Because I was just dying to be...
And as the Hollywood street scene
Left its mark on me,
I changed from a boy into a man...
I said "Never Again!"
I stuck out my chin when I should have ran...
Sh*t in the fan...

I was driven so hard,
By the sound of my heart...

That day was just like any other day...
No work, and no pay...
I knew that Paradise was some other place,
And I'd get there another day...
I will find it, before I expire...
Cause I've got The Desire...

When the walls surround,
In deeper shades of blue...
And there's no voice of reason inside you...
And you search for meaning
On an empty shelf...
Then you're always dreaming
Of somewhere else...

Today, is just like any other day...
No fear, no restraint!
I know that Paradise is some other place...
And I will get there another day...
You can come with me,
No conditions or fares...
Somehow, somewhere...
I will find it before I expire,
Cause I've got The Desire...




Unrepentant vagabond...
Plot the new coordinates and cast the map aside...
Now I gotta ramble on...
Navigate the pitfalls and cross the great divide...

The mapmaker's legend has direction and a key...
He set the declination but what good is it to me?

I can't see the rationality...
The world's not my responsibility...
And happiness isn't there for me...
But maybe I'll inch closer to the source...
When I find True North...

(With or without a friend...
Keep searching 'til the end...)

Tempting fate and cheating death...
No one ever told me it was gonna be like this...
Contemplate the randomness...
When the mind is willing it gets downright perilous...

Overburdened, underwhelmed, their ethical decrees...
That's your moral compass but what good is it to me?

I can't see the rationality...
The world's not my responsibility...
And happiness isn't there for me...
But maybe I'll inch closer to the source...
When I find True North...

(With or without a friend...
Keep searching 'til the end...)

When I find True North...






Here's the church!
There's the steeple!
Open up the door,
"Corporations are people!"

Wait, what did he say?
What the f*ck did he say?!

It couldn't last...
They had to crash...
Some parties are just made that way...
But when the bell rings,
The boys will sing,
"Swing low sweet precariat!"

"Let's say we try to get this right.."
Said the plutocrat to Jesus Christ...
And when the old fox fearing the worst,
Made his entrance in a hearse...
Then the nine in black robes all went berserk...

This is a tale of Robin Hood in reverse!
"Citizens united!"
I was excited!
"When the kids are united they can never be divided!"
But that was yesterday...
There's a brand new sham today!

"Let's say we try to get this right..."
Said the plutocrat to Jesus Christ...
And when the old fox fearing the worst,
Made his entrance in a hearse,
Then the nine in black robes all went berserk...

This is a tale of Robin Hood in reverse!
