You can't overestimate the limits of aggression
Of an animal created in the image of God himself
You can't allow for subtle defects
There's no time to reflect
There's no time to cover your tracks

It's not a mistake to fear an animal's unlimited access
To plans and schemes without its hopes and dreams
Or a sense of satisfaction
With such a course of action
As search, evaluate and destroy

I am a man, I am a superstar
I shine so bright, a worldwide success
I said hammer it home, I am a superstar
A glowing example of a dream come true

I am a man, I am a work of art
I'm fashioned in God's own image
I am holy and clean
I am a man, I am a superstar
I shine so bright, a worldwide success

Let me curl myself into a ball before you let me
Understand
Let me curl myself into a ball before you let me
Understand

And make me realise

You can't underestimate the feeling of attraction
Of the animal in question to the marvel of what he's made
You can't escape a sense of pride
In creating a divide between to suffer
And to rain on his parade

Don't even think about it
It's not enough to read about it
For said animal to circle and keep
An eye on you should you decide
To have a go and try to rattle his cage

I am a man, I am a gift to the world
In which I was born to civilise and set free
I am a man, I am a marketing tool
The sale of the century and the bargain of a lifetime
Hammer it home, I am a superstar
A glowing example of a dream come true

Let me curl myself into a ball before you let me
Understand
Let me curl myself into a ball before you let me
Understand

And make me realise

I'm having a ball just being a man
I'm living it up just being a man
It sure as hell rocks just being a man
Yeah nothing quite beats just being a man
Like being a man

    General CommentMost certainly!

    I was pretty uncertain about some of the new tracks but this song has really grown on me. I love the arrogance they bring across, it's very satirical.
