I'll teach you everything that I know now, Eddie If you really want to take the time But don't expect to get answers to anything, Eddie There is just one thing I've learned Through everything that I've done and tried Everything I have justified It's all vanity, all vanity - we try to have control It's all vanity, all vanity 'cause Chaos rules it all I always drive like a madman, Eddie But you'll soon get used to that I believe if you're moving fast enough, Eddie You don't ever have to watch your back I choose solid ground to make my stands I stay off the streets at closing time It's all vanity, all vanity - we try to have control It's all vanity, all vanity 'cause Chaos rules it all Remember how it was out at Bunglass We climbed up to the peak and stood against the rocks The photographs came - you couldn't see us We were lost against the mountains like specks of dust And the mirror never lies, it's just these foolish eyes And we all see what we want to see What we need to see, what we have to see And so will you do just the same one day, Eddie I've been to that place a thousand times Looked over the edge so many times Wanted to jump a thousand times Well we talk about saving the world now, Eddie It's our vanity gone mad She'll survive us all perfectly well When we're all long buried and dead Clever monkeys with technology Barely out of the caves and the trees It's all vanity, all vanity - we try to have control It's all vanity, all vanity 'cause Chaos rules it all Eddie now let it go . . . I turn my head away from here Down towards the rolling seas again I kneel and worship where I can The ground comes swirling up and through these veins . . .
