How does it feel to be completely unreal
How does it feel to be a voter
And how does it feel to be a voluntary heel
I wonder whose it is
I see you queueing up outside Saint Peter's gate
You can feel bonafide if you ride with the tide
But it's not real

And how does it feel to be out on your own
How does it feel to be thinking
And how does it feel to be out on the run
With the mindless world at your heels
I wish I had no answers to put to you
'Cos they got me so hogtied I feel
Like most of me has died
And it's real

And outside on the dragon
And inside in the cold
Mummy's on the bandwagon, and daddy's just getting old
And through the blood spew heavens
The roar of lust complains
Please let me in, I have no sin
But you know I'm not real

And how does it feel to be the master's right hand nose
How does it feel to be lieutenant
And how does it feel to be stood on someone's toes
With a leech bleeding you for rent
When you say you want a bit more rank
You wanna be a big wheel
You can feel magnified if you hide in your pride
It's not real

And how does it feel with a white flag in your fist
How does it feel to have two faces
And how does it feel with your god strapped to your wrist
And him leading you such a chase
You got one set of words for him
And you got another for me
You're gonna feel mystified when you're identified
Don't worry kid it's not real

And outside on the dragon
And inside in the cold
Mummy's on the bandwagon, and daddy's just getting old
And through the blood spew heavens
The roar of lust complains
Please let me in, I have no sin
But you know I'm not real

And through the blood spew heavens
The roar of lust complains
Please let me in, I have no sin
But I'm not real
I'm not real
Not real
Not real
