Why does it start raining every time I step outside?
(let’s ask the omniscient narrator)
Why won’t I be prime minister no matter how hard I try?
(let’s ask the omniscient narrator)

Who has the authority to hand out opportunities
To live the greatest story ever told?
Who introduces elements for character development
As our lives unfold?

When I was young I had the voice of an angel
(Andy, you’re still young...)
Oh, backing vocals you’re too kind
But this is just another chapter in the story of my life

I want to choose my own adventure
Cling to the illusion of free will
Not have the whims of the Prime Mover
Dictate plot-holes, twists and the Big Reveal

To feel as though we’re in control we put our lives online
(shouting into the echo chamber)
The videos that we upload may exceed recorded time
(of that there’s not really any danger)

Now every single voice is both the signal and the noise
And the cacophony is louder every day
Grating on the ears of the omniscient narrator
Driving him insane

[I think I’m having a mid-life crisis]
He thinks he’s having a mid-life crisis
The Omniscient Narrator is having a mid life crisis

Every single voice is both the signal and the noise
And from the chaos the cacophony is born
We all line up to take the place of the omniscient narrator
Now that he is gone

We’re all omniscient narrators now
