Have you ever wondered why we're here?
What's it all about?
You've no idea.
And everywhere you look, all you see is hatred and darkness and death and fear. But you know it doesn't have to be..
I hate you; you hate me.
Cause even though we're different, it doesn't make a difference and we can live in harmony

No you don't know who I am, but maybe I can hold your hand
and together we can understand about love!
I feel tingly...
That's love my friend, and it's time for you to learn all about it.

Love is a place, love is a thing
Love is a place, love is a thing
Love is a place, love is a thing
Love is a place, love is a thing

And do you ever feel like life's unfair?
Cause everybody hates you and no one cares?
But if you follow me, maybe you will see that love is everywhere.

But what is love, is it in the sky?
No it's a feeling, deep inside.
Because I'm hungry?
No, you're lonely. I can see it in your eyes.
I don't understand...
Don't worry, you will soon. Come and meet some of my friends! They all know about love. Come on, just over the rainbow.

Oh look, there he goes, flying through the sky.
Maybe we should follow him or we'll get left behind.
Yes, but there's lots of chicken left and I'd like to eat the chicken.
I'd also like to eat the chicken. Let's do that instead!

So here we are with all my friends and they love you, all of them!
Yes we do!
It is true!
We love you!
And you love us too!
I love you too, Furry Boy!
Heheh... Harder!

Now we've eaten the chicken, I don't know what to do.
Maybe we should look for our friend. Isn't that what friends do?
And we have finished our chicken picnic.

To love each other is to care, to be kind...
...and to share!
I love my friend, so I give them a hug!
I made this for you cause I love you so much!
I love my pet cause he's a crab.
I love this tree! I love this stick! I love this bug and -

No, no, no, that's not how it's done. You must save your love for your special one!
My special one?
Everyone has a special one.
Even me? But I am lonely...
Yes it's true, but do not worry! You're confused, but that's okay. Let me put this another way...

This is the story of Michael, the loneliest boy in town.
This is the story of Michael, the ugliest boy in town.
Ugly and weak so they called him a freak so he lived on his own underground.
He lived on his own underground.
He lived on his own underground.

You see? Everyone has a special one!
Even Michael!
Your heart beats hard like a big love drum, calling for your special one!
So be patient, because maybe...
...your special one will come!

He's made for her...
and she's made for him!
And that's the way it's always been.
And it's perfect.
And it's pure.
And it's protected with a ring.
That's the way that old love goes.
Like a flower it grows and grows!
And it's forever.
And forever.

And now we all worship our King!
Our King! Our King! Our King!
His name is Malcolm.
He is the King of Love!
We must feed Him.
We must feed Him gravel.
Or He becomes angry.

And this is your chance to start anew and all we're asking you to do...
...is change your name...
...and clean your brain...
...and forget everything you ever knew!

And your heart will find its home!
And our love will never go!
Now wear this ring!
And join the King!
And you will never be alone!

    My InterpretationIts parodying traditional marriage and religious cults. The song is a conversation between multiple people, the first speaker, we will call him Manny, is being recruited to a cult but doesn't know it yet.
    The second speaker, we'll call him Shrignold, is trying to recruit Manny to the cult.

    "But what is love, is it in the sky?
    No it's a feeling, deep inside.
    Because I'm hungry?
    No, you're lonely. I can see it in your eyes."

    Manny asks what love is, and Shrignold tells him that its a feeling deep inside. Manny says, "Because I'm hungry?," but Shringold denies this, saying its because he's lonely. What Manny really needs is food, but Shrignold is trying to give him something he doesn't really need.

    "He's made for her...
    and she's made for him!
    And that's the way it's always been.
    And it's perfect.
    And it's pure.
    And it's protected with a ring.
    That's the way that old love goes.
    Like a flower it grows and grows!
    And it's forever.
    And forever."

    This verse is parodying anti-gay propaganda. "HE was made for HER, SHE was made for HIM. Its the way its ALWAYS BEEN. It's perfect and its PURE. And its protected with a ring." Those lines parody the arguments against gay marriage.

    And now we all worship our King!
    Our King! Our King! Our King!
    His name is Malcolm.
    He is the King of Love!
    We must feed Him.
    We must feed Him gravel.
    Or He becomes angry.

    And this is your chance to start anew and all we're asking you to do...
    ...is change your name...
    ...and clean your brain...
    ...and forget everything you ever knew!

    And your heart will find its home!
    And our love will never go!
    Now wear this ring!
    And join the King!
    And you will never be alone!

    These verses are parodying religion. Manny has to change his name, clean his brain, etc. to have true love, but this isn't true.
