"Be the champion", that's what you tell yourself
I guess in your mind you are
It's true you shit on 'johns' of gold
You're at least champion of that
So how can you lead the people of today
Forward to tomorrow?

I doubt you know the gravity of your post
I'd say no
There are people out there who want to love
There are people out there who don't want to die
You're not one of us
We should be blessed with human rights
No one should be groped by you
No one should be owned by you
You're in charge of you, big boy
And that's all (And that's all)

Weald that sword in battle, head up to the front line
Bring yourself to 'fess-up to one crime
Let us know who's running the show
You're not the man for the job
Move over, asshole
We can save the world


Misuse, misuse - power
You'll never know the real you
Abuse, abuse - prowess
We'll never vote for you

And there's no excuse
You've been coasting along just fine
You've been close but oh so far
We want you to have your chance
But you're not the right man
So go on...

(Repeat Chorus)
