At the Dead Man's Ball

All the world's an illusion,
Enamored by the shine,
The actors staged and ready to perform,
Let's all go out and get in line.

Religion is such a wonderful thing,
All the pews so full,
People praying their team will win,
You see..... they're no fools.

Three dancing babies, two caring clowns,
And a fakir from East Nepal,
Each and all performing tonight,
At the opening of The Dead Man's Ball.

Representatives of all the people,
Can be found in Washington on the Hill,
Look at how their hands are extended,
Just waiting for another dollar bill.

Pretty women's faces,
And men with wallets thick,
Let's go get some more Viagra,
That'll do the trick.

Three dancing babies, two caring clowns,
And a fakir from East Nepal,
Each and all performing tonight,
At the opening of The Dead Man's Ball.

Storm clouds darkening skies up above,
It's time to go to war again,
Let's get the troops assembled,
So we can send them all in.

All the world's an illusion,
Enamored by the shine,
The actors staged and ready to perform,
Let's all go out and get in line.
