lyrics

Preposterous sarcophagus in the penthouse pyramid
Posthumous ultralux in the penthouse pyramid
Yertle the Turtle's bones way up on Odin's throne
Dead dreaming on panopticonic perch
The lookout lapsed into reverie
And collapsed into the sea
Yertle's corpse still lords over the works
Conspicuous cash coffin locked away from taxation
Megalomaniacal mega-mausoleum
Sky high sarcophagi multiply
Oligarchs entombed in glass
Paid a pretty penny for a way to say
"We die higher than you live"
