lyrics

I don't want to clean your bar
Sweep your dirty floors or
Watch you excavate your nose
But my circumstances are
Not the best right now, so
Until I metamorphose
I'll plot my great escape from here
One day it will come, I swear
I'm just gathering my strength
Yes, my destiny is clear
I wasn't born to serve, no
My back is straight, my fists are clenched
Cleaning hotel rooms for you
Whets my appetite

Now 20 years have passed
My back is not so straight now
But my plan is alive and well
On the inside I build vast
Monuments and bridges
Who are you to judge, and tell
Me they're only in my head?
They are quite real, I tell you
Like your debt and your desert
Each night as I lie in bed
With all the great explorers
Nothing aches and nothing hurts
I am immortal, I am strong
And you are under my command,
But a digit in a chip
And this land is my land
Yes it is.
