"Megalomaniac" as written by Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Ben Kenney, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
I hear you on the radio
You permeate my screen, its' unkind but
If I met you in a scissor fight
I'd cut off both your wings on principle alone
On principle alone

Hey megalomaniac
You're no Jesus
Yeah, you're no fucking Elvis
Special, as you know yourself
Baby, just step down, step down

If I were your appendages
I'd hold open your eyes
So you would see
That all of us are heaven sent
There was never meant to be only one
To be only one

Hey megalomaniac
You're no Jesus
Yeah, you're no fucking Elvis
Special, as you know yourself
Baby, just step down, step down

Yeah
You're no Jesus
You're no Elvis
You're no answer

Hey megalomaniac
You're no Jesus
Yeah, you're no fucking Elvis
Special, as you know yourself
Just step down

    General Commentcould the song possibly be about a megalomaniac?!?! no! o wait yeah it is! freakin a man you don't have to read that much in to this song. it is about all people! everyone is egotistic now and days. just a taste of power and people abuse it. the song is about everyone needing to get off our high horse because were all equal.

    General CommentActualy i read in an interview that the person depicted in the music video is not about W, contrary to popular belief. It's about someone in the personal life of the lead singer of incubus.

    General CommentOn K-rock 92.3 in NY, the DJ said that Incubus said that the song was not about Bush.. but i think they were just saying so because after all this time everyoone's been saying so and maybe they just didn't want people saying Incubus was anti-Bush or something. I still think it's a great song. a little played out. I guess the 'song' isn't about the pres. but maybe the 'video' is. btw. thank god songmeanings is back.

    General CommentIn the video, they show like Hitler and Stalin. So maybe it has some connection to them? I'm not sure though.
