There's a "Fat Cat" sitting in a Caddilac Riding ten feet off the floor Who says "I used to do a little, but I couldn't get enough And so a little got more and more." Well I've nothing to show for all these years - But it still makes me smile That the ones you always hear the most Say nothing that's worthwhile.
No gold, no frankincense or myrrh we bring Just faith and this "burnt offering" So raise your voice with mine and sing A hymn to long lost causes.
[CHORUS:] Pledge allegiance to pretence The white flag of indifference You sought a grail forged of fools gold And on the quest your souls were sold.
Living the life of milk and honey I bet it tastes real sweet Now the "chicks" are queueing cus They all want screwing down on Institution street. Does it feel so cool when you act The fool with "Charlie", "H" and "E"? Well to my way of thinking there's A whole lot of nothing where your Brains should be.
This planet burns and you couldn't really care That your head (unlike the Earth) is full of air If there's anybody in there - time has come to face the real world
They're walking tall yet heading nowhere Shouting loud but saying nothing So empty-headed, hollow hearted Tell me how this farce got started
If there's anybody in there - time has come to face the real world.
