The Lyrics

Picture the scene...a foreboding, metallic structure rises from the ocean, greeting an oncoming squadron of jets, flying robots and giant insects. These are the DECEPTICONS, an army of fierce warriors intent on draining the planet Earth of her resources. At least, that's the plan - a plan constantly scuppered by the theatrical MEGATRON, big on ideas but short on the follow-through. As the horde of mechanical miscreants limp inside to lick their wounds, one disgruntled Seeker by the name of STARSCREAM stays outside to ponder his situation...
Don't wanna be a Decepticon idiot
A slave to Megatron's megalomania
Been in control so many millennia
And he's barely gone beyond America

All his plans have no real direction
Drain a human energy station
But at the slightest resistance, he'll escape
We'd be better off in my servos
This planet will be an inferno
Cybertron will be mine, too

Sure, you could say that I've made a plethora
Of failed attempts to get Megs to surrender
And ev'ry bot expects a flailin' grab for
Leadership when Megatron missed a shot or four

But this time, I'll make my ascension
And destroy this pitiful nation
The universe will soon tremble at my name
In defeat, I'll no longer wallow
Don't care if my promise sounds hollow
Cause my track record's no good

Don't wanna be a Decepticon idiot
Sick of the week-in, week-out tedium
Each MacGuffin wasted, I'm furious
I'd better try, for once, to be victorious

My failed treacherous ways are legend
Gonna kick off that reputation
And my leadership will last more than one day
Autobots will soon know true sorrow
Not gonna wait until tomorrow
Megatron, I'm after you

His mind made up, STARSCREAM storms inside the DECEPTICON base, ready to put his plan into action. Surely it will be as smooth as then ten thousand before it...right?
