Chorus:
We are entangled with The Big Bamboozler
We are dashed by the very same rain
We are drowning in the stream together
Some in power and some in pain
We can defile this site we post on
Crushing the beings that we view in snide
Troubled spirits will dwell forever
We're all Slouching to the Darker Side

I am alone and I am lurching
Pumping Adrenalin in my grime
I am balanced at the brink of failure
I'm impatient to commit a slime
I reel backward with my senses gobsmacked
Indignation it be my crime
In arrogance I will blather,
We're all Slouching to the Darker Side

Chorus

On this travail through myths and passions
Blind to intuition, my head, it hurts
I am gathering the phools together
I'm conspiring to play my part
All of those who have succumbed before me
Band together to be my guide
Goading lessons that I will follow
We're all Slouching to the Darker Side

Chorus

When we get there we'll discover
All of the gibes we've been given to snerk
Have been with us since life's beginning and
We never noticed we were jerks
We can totter at the brink of ruin
Never realizing how far we've dived
Troubled spirits will dwell forever
We're all Slouching to the Darker Side
