lyrics

Hello, I am your Ego
I will do everything I can to mess with your mind and tell you you’re not good enough
I will make you feel insignificant
I am your ego

I am a virus that is passed on from parent to child
I say “Clean up your room, get better good grades, do what I tell you and obey.
If you don’t, you won’t be loved”
I am conditional
I am your ego

I want to keep you small, separate and afraid
I want you to think you are your expensive car, all your money, your resume, your credentials
I want you to be a prisoner of your fear and anxiety
I am your ego

I can make you think you don’t belong
I can make you think that you are powerless and everyone is special but you
I am the virus that lives inside of you
I am your ego

I don’t want you to show love
It will only kill me
I need you to be in fear
so you can feed me

I need you to think you are small, separate and alone
and if you don’t think this, I will die
I am your phobia that will kill you for my survival
I am your ego

I am greedy, selfish, and judgmental
It’s all about me me me me me
there is no WE
I don’t want you to see the light: it will only kill me
I do not want you to love: it will kill me

I am the devil that lives inside of you
I am the virus that splits you into two
I am the one who drives you into a dark parallel universe
I am your ego

Remember to teach your children they are not good enough by hitting and yelling at them
Don’t tell them they are precious just because they exsist
Be sure to pass me onto the next generation so I can keep them small, powerless & afraid
You must love me. I am your EGO.
You're such a loser, nothing personal, just self preservation.
