"King Caesar" as written by and Palumbo/nakamura....
You want a medal
For the things you've done
Well prizes don't come around
As easy as you want em now
You want a mountain with your face engraved
So everybody in the world can see the face of nothing changed

Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you and your poker face
Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you

You want a monument erected in your name
And odds are we will tear it down
When you leave as quickly as you came
You want a place in the history books
But no one has changed history
With double talk and dirty looks

Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you and your poker face
Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you

You heighten yourself to lower the blame
And you martyr yourself to heighten the fame
And you lower yourself to draw the compassion
Here's to you

You want a medal for the things you've done
But if you ever really did a damn thing
We would've gave you one
You want a mountain with your face engraved
So everyone will know the face when approached by to run away

Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you and your poker face
Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you

Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you and your poker face
Hip hip hooray you're our saving grace
Here's to you

    General CommentIt sucks that more people haven't commented on these Head Automatica songs. I think this song has the best lyrics on the CD.

    General CommentWell, it's pretty obvious this is an anti-Bush song. The music isn't really all that great despite what you think of the lyrics, the flow is kind of weird. I like Glassjaw more.

    General CommentI\'ve never heard this song, but when I read the lyrics I thought I must hear it soon!But couldn\'t this song be about the Roman emperor Caesar?

    \"you want a place in the history books,
    but noone has changed history,
    with double talks and dirty looks\"

    After all, Caesar is known because his mate Brutus betrayed him.

    General Commenti think its pretty difinitively about bush.
    it's basically talking about the false impression of improvement and glorification someone has taken upon himself.
    but what- in my opinion- separates it from being someone else, it the line "You want a mountain with your face engraved" line.

    Helloooo, Mount Rushmore, great presidents, yo'.
