Once upon a time
On the assembly line
Ran my brilliant designs
Made of plastic

Then the factory called me
Said “We are appalled we feel
Your new designs are too drastic.”

What? Babies with buzz saws?
The bankers in charge
They lacked vision and imagination.

Challenge me, will you? Well, I’ll show you all!
I’ll see to it this wretched company falls.
I’m not just some nobody here doing time
You fat bastards need me and my brilliant mind!

so…they fired me.

All through the night
As I wept, I packed my explosives

dollies with knives
And gasoline filled super-soakers

Deep in my mind
My revenge grew ever corrosive


I invaded the building with my army of toys
As a fire rang out with a deafening noise, I screamed
“I am the nightmare that crushes your dreams
I’m the greatest creator this world’s ever seen!”

Cackle as the fire crackles
As the toys attack ‘em till they all fall down.

Climbing to the top, I hear a helicopter
Talking to me as the cops surround

Every corner of the factory
Gasoline. It’s either them or me
Them or me!
To infinity!
To insanity!

All through the night
As I laughed, I set off my explosives


But alas I was detained
And they labeled me criminally insane.
