NERO (my God to Thee)
Instead of the classics we live the comic life
In outline, on the surface we survive
Flicking the pages, headline surfing as we go
Survey results keep us in the know.
So busy looking at the map 
we miss the sights
Too concerned with what's wrong 
to see what's right

Too many opposites 
pulling at the middle
You watch Rome, I fiddle
Nero. Nero my God to thee. 
Rather believe a pretty lie
Than face the ugly truth
Someone pulled the plug 
on the fountain of youth >>
