A rhapsody!
Contestants in disguise,
A nation of desire,
But who will win the prize?
The people stand united,
Reluctantly aligned,
Copying and lying
Are their favorite pastime.

You've got a chance
To confront the world today,
Desperate romance
Is the curse of castaways.
What good is skill
If you don't make it to the dance?
Despite circumstance
You've got a chance.

Common life, depicted on afternoon TV,
Is spiked to give the
Miserable a vogue identity
Hate your neighbors,
Cheat your friends,
They don't discriminate,
Popularity and fame don't care
If you're a reprobate.

You've got a chance
To confront the world today,
Desperate romance
Is the curse of castaways.
What good is skill
If you don't make it to the dance?
Despite circumstance
You've got a chance.

I'm tired of all this
Shakespearean misinformation.
I want to win the game.

You've got the right intentions,
But who's got time to think?
You've got a noon appointment,
You've got to hit the links.
You're talking in the stratosphere,
You're curled up on the floor.
With such a wealth of information,
Why are you so poor?

You've got a chance
To be relevant today,
Desperate romance
Is the curse of castaways.
What good is skill
If you don't make it to the dance?
(Don't you believe what the
wise men have to say.)
Despite circumstance
You've got a chance.
