Oh, Abel. Oh, Abel.
Cleaning all the crumbs from the family table.
Aw, Cain, then says Cain:
I did it once brother, and I'd do it again.
Look out.

Dionysus, Dionysus,
Bottle of booze at the back of the bus,
Says to Lord: "Lord, forgive me, Lord.
You've got to sneak something
or you're bound to get bored.
Look out."

But whoever said that the race was run?
Where were you when the west was won?

Don Quixote, Sancho Panza.
Riding down to San Antone with Santa Ana and Little Wing.
Little Wing, is that a windmill, or am I just seeing things again?
Get Gauguin! Chief Logan!
Desperate times call for desperate slogans.
One for the honey. Two for the snake oil!
¨It might be true that to the victor go the spoils; look out.

Who ever said that the race was run?
Look out to the west sky, young man!
Where were you when the west was won?
Look out going East of Eden!

Oh, Abel. Aw, Abel,
it ain't that easy to keep the whole flock stable.
Oh, Cain. Then says Cain:
"Am I my brother's keeper, or just a vagabond again?"

But who ever said that the race was run?
Look out to the west sky, young man!
Where were you when the west was won?
Look out going East of Eden!
Who ever said that the world was through?
Look out of the bus window, kid!
When the west was won well, where were you?
¨Look out for the Grand Illusion!
