One, two, three, four,
Oh, tender, once you see their faces
Oh, they're just like us
Tending their wants
Standing in their places
Oh, their ego is crushed

The only way out
Is to destroy all traces
Oh, destroy yourself
There's no way back
There's complete devastation
Oh, there's no way out
There's no way out
How can you destroy your ego?
Would you believe it?
There's no way out
How can I kill your ego?
Would you still believe it?

Oh, the red one's come
Don't shadow changes
Oh, the sparrow looks up
Red spots on the sun
Is there evil in nature?
Oh, the eagles spread claws
An invisible cloud
Makes invisible changes
Oh, an ant takes the crown
A man holds a gun
There's no explanation
Oh, he shoots at the sun
