I have an evil plan
To save the world for every man,
And I think it's better than
The way it's being run.
Oh, the ground works laid,
No don't be afraid,
I'm sure that I can fix it,
When I figure out the physics.

My evil plan to save the world,
just you wait 'till it's unfurled,
it'll go down in history.
It's prophetic,
no it's not pathetic.
I can't believe I made it up myself.

I have an evil plan,
To save the world you understand,
The exemplary feat,
You'd think I'd have to cheat.
I'd make Voltaire proud,
Deep and furrow browed.
Uncanny and so clever,
it's 'Our Newest Plan Ever!'
Got tired of whining,
A grander scheme with silver lining,
For every boy and girl.
We can't be responsible,
For all that's wrong with this world.

Starving children in pain,
You can't believe in that God.
The world's not spinning your way,
Does every dog still get his day?

    General CommentThis song seems to be about people who think they know better than God.

    The line about "starving children in pain" is a common argument for why God, as Christians think of Him, can not exist. If God was omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent, why would he let children starve?

    This song attempts to address that argument by basically mocking the idea that man can have a better solution for how the world should work, rather than the way God has created it.

    General CommentI discovered this band by accident after looking for a copy of the Canadian National Anthem. I downloaded Oh, Canada, loved it, and downloaded this song. My Evil Plan To Save the World has fast become my new favorite song.

    General CommentWow, I think that last one is a great interpretation! This is the very first song I ever heard by them back in 03 and I was so confused by that line. I think they needed to unfold the concept a bit more. But it's so great anyway.
