lyrics

INTRO:

LARS: For years, they will remember me... and tremble.

CHORUS:

Ozymandias (doing my thing)
Ozymandias (bow to the king)
Ozymandias (you best get the message)
The biggest, the best and you gotta respect it

Ozymandias (doing my thing)
Ozymandias (bow to the king)
Ozymandias (you best get the message)
Ramses II you best get the message (whoo!)

VERSE 1:

MEGA RAN: I met a traveler from an antique land
Described a statue of a royal man
With a constant frown as if always down
Take a look around at the wreck we found
Two vast and trunkless legs made of stone
Wrinkled lips a commander so cold
Sculpted with care from the darkness he led
We dig up the rest to get all of the facts
Many of the words have worn off with time
Making it difficult for one to transcribe
Sharper than stone, harder than steel
Perhaps he can show me the art of the deal
I grabbed his shaky hand, my homies called him a crazy man
Maybe man or he could’ve been the one to
Make Egypt great again, what's the deal?

MC LARS: My name is Ozymandias, the King of Kings,
I throw the biggest rallies that Cairo has ever seen
Even though I'm emperor, I trip on things the people say
Fake news, they use, it's true, discrediting my reign? Insane!
So sad, my name is everywhere with cold command, they love me so
I'm in denial like the river where I set my throne
280 characters, worldwide, these hieroglyphics speak
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair! Obey your king!

CHORUS:

Ozymandias (doing my thing)
Ozymandias (bow to the king)
Ozymandias (you best get the message)
The biggest, the best and you gotta respect it

Ozymandias (doing my thing)
Ozymandias (bow to the king)
Ozymandias (you best get the message)
Ramses II you best get the message (whoo!)

VERSE 2:

MEGA RAN: We cast our votes and now he gloats
Killing hope among the very folks
That he'd claimed he'd help out the most
Looks like this bloke is one big joke
In the desert looked his people in the eye
Took away protection and left them to die
Nothing remains, around decay
No one can stop him get out of the way
Even the info you think you receive
He calls it false and you have to believe
The air you breathe the marks you set
The hand that mocked them, the heart that fed
King of Kings, boundless and bare
Look on his works - and run in despair
Upon more digging we just come up short
Turns out this guy isn't quite what we thought

MC LARS: Gigantic structures in the sand, my legacy remains
They carve my face in stone as I survey my vast domain
From here to Athens, out to Syria, I've built my stage
Across the Baltic I've got allies but they'll never say
And I will live forever, voice immortalized, see I'm
The greatest leader that the hoi polloi could ever find
I say whatever's on my mind so best get on your knees
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair! Obey your king!

CHORUS:

Ozymandias (doing my thing)
Ozymandias (bow to the king)
Ozymandias (you best get the message)
The biggest, the best and you gotta respect it

Ozymandias (doing my thing)
Ozymandias (bow to the king)
Ozymandias (you best get the message)
Ramses II you best get the message (whoo!)
