Your ego will travel with you on this earth
and be your companion for worser or worse
It pretends it’s your friend, your bestest amigo
and it pours on the guilt, that’s the mark of the ego

It’s there to protect you, to help you be strong
so it has to remind you, you’ve done it all wrong
You’re weak and you’re lazy, you don’t have a clue
That’s your drill sargent ego trying to motivate you

The ego wants you to be all you can be
so it gives you these pep talks all day and for free
Oh the places you’ll go and the guilt trips you’ll travel
as your ego plays judge and bangs down on it’s gavel

But you always can get some relief from your shame
by projecting it onto the others you’ll blame
For that is the ego at it’s beasiest best
it nurses it’s grievances close to it’s chest

Republicans, liberals, your parents, your ex
the world is just teaming with folks to correct
If only these fools would conform to your ways
you could get on with life without further delays

The ego’s always finding new gripes to complain about
Turns molehills to mountains of yikes to feel pain about
Sometimes the ego stuff gets you so stuffy
You come down with a cold or an ouchie more roughie

But there’s no time for rest, get up out of bed
if you’re just here and now you won’t get ahead
Your to-do list must buzz like the bees when they’re busying
filling your days till they’re endlessly dizzying

Oh the places you’ll go and the people you’ll see
all through the lenses of, what’s in it for me
Cause the ego believes there is something it lacks
and until it is found, it won’t let you relax

Perhaps you’ll find it in the next one you date
true love at first sight with a soul kind of mate
The romance is hot till the climate turns cold
cause when two halves collide they do not make a whole

It’s great till the love gets obscured by control
for when two halves collide they cannot make a whole
So the ego moves on ever constantly striving
addicted to seeking, afraid of arriving

You’re traveling fast at the speed of surviving
with fear in the drivers seat doing the driving
Or maybe you’re on the fast track of success
you’re constantly driven to be great, better, best

You’re a mover, a shaker a real time achiever
You’re a real self made man, or a dazzling diva
You’re rich and you’re famous and you make quite a splash
You’re on top of the world and you’re rolling in cash

You drive the right car, you’ve married the right spouse
today lunch with Oprah, tomorrow the White House
But at night insecurity pays you a call
cause you know anytime you could lose it all

Your shrink says to rest, your spouse sure agrees
your doctor says, ulcers, take 14 of these
You know you should slow it down sooner or later
but your foot is just glued to that accelerator

Your ego consoles, well at least you’re successful
it’s a sign of success to be constantly stressful
You’ve made it to prime time an everyone loves you
but your self esteem’s based on what others think of you

And opinions can change in the blink of an eye
which is why you need meds just to sleep and get by
One day when you’ve failed and succeeded enough
you witness your ego exposed in the buff

And you realize behind all its protective clothing
that the ego is simply a state of self loathing
And beyond that you realize the biggest of deals
you’ve dreamt up the ego, it’s not even real

So for richer, for poorer, in all kinds of health
you make a commitment to loving yourself
You release the projections you placed upon others
and find through forgiveness that peace is discovered

You realize the love that you searched for outside you
is what you are made of and can’t be denied you
So you let go your worries, your plans, your pills
put some logs on the fire and learn how to chill

Your old superstitions have gone up in smoke
like you can’t rest in peace until after you croak
You no longer fear death, or for that matter, life
cause you know that all matters are safe and alright

While resting in peace you will soon be inspired
to go out in the world with some new found desires
Desires that spring from your heart and your soul
and wherever they take you, you go in there whole

For the ego is now in the passenger seat
lets down the window and takes in the treats
There’s no need to hurry, you’re taking it slow
cause the journey’s as rich as the places you’ll go

Where you are going, you don’t need to know
for the journey’s as rich as the places you’ll go

The journey’s as rich as the places you’ll go
