Disease of Conceit

  • There's a whole lot of people suffering tonight from the disease of conceit
    Whole lot of people struggling tonight from the disease of conceit
    Comes right down the highway straight down the line
    Rips into your senses through your body and your mind
    Nothing about it that's sweet
    The disease of conceit

    There's a whole lot of hearts breaking tonight from the disease of conceit
    Whole lot of hearts shaking tonight from the disease of conceit
    Steps into your room eats into your soul
    Over your senses you have no control
    Ain't nothing too discreet about the disease of conceit

    There's a whole lot of people dying tonight from the disease of conceit
    Whole lot of people crying tonight from the disease of conceit
    Comes right out of nowhere and you're down for the count
    From the outside world the pressure will mount
    Turn you into a piece of meat
    The disease of conceit

    Conceit is the disease that the doctors got no cure
    They've done a lot of research on it but what it is they're still not sure

    There's a whole lot of people in trouble tonight from the disease of conceit
    Whole lot of people seeing trouble tonight from the disease of conceit
    Give you delusions of grandeur and an evil eye
    Give you the idea that you're too good to die
    The they bury you from head to your feet
