Found a hand in the sand,
where they covered up the remnants.
Not enough to show the Joneses,
but should look good on our wall.
Not too clean, nicotine.
Really never saw a nail file;
still two others tried to claim it,
but I just swept past them all.
And the rain beats down on the amphitheatre.

Hear them sing, feel them swing:
aren't you trembling with excitement?
Can't stop my pulse from racing
when I'm faced with scenes like this.
Caesar lives, the Empire lives,
must be twenty fires burning.
If the guard would loose the lions,
I would surely die in bliss.
And the rain beats down on the amphitheatre.

Do you like my cross, as it sparkles in the white light?
Cut in solid silver, swinging round my neck.
Thousands died on them, millions died for one.
Impressive as ......?......
But we can't sling a stake around your neck.
No, you can't sling a stake around your neck.

Standing here, sipping beer:
aren't we being rather tasteless?
I'm ravenous with hunger.
Can't we simply sneak back home?
Harmless fools, gaping ghouls,
and they've never seen a car crash.
It's raining and it's raining,
not a freak's night out in Rome.
And the rain beats down on the amphitheatre.

Gazing down at the ground,
where the flies move around my carcass.
Said you had to be a martyr
to raise interest from a crowd.
But I can fly, I can fly,
if I could just see their faces.
As I glide between the planets,
playing I-Spy from a cloud.
And the rain beats down on the amphitheatre.
