I'm not impressed and I'm impressionable -
you don't leave much of a mark at all.
All your insight is quite laughable -
you're just another know-it-all.
Well I don't know just what you're here for
except you've nowhere else to be.
Maybe some are content with the motions,
but that's not enough for me.

King Midas in reverse!

You've one goal, and that's debatable.
All your actions - means to one vice:
self-propagation, mass adulation.
Here comes fame, but at what price?
Choose words carefully - I see through them all.
Your calculations won't stop your fall
and from this distance my view is crystal
oh I want to see it all - oh I want to see it.

King Midas in reverse!
