The Lyrics

LORD STARSCREAM is confused - where have all of his minions gone? He's pretty sure the seventeenth iteration of the "raid an oil reserve" plan will work this time, so how dare they evacuate the base? Turning the corner of the eerily empty-sounding base, LORD STARSCREAM is shocked to find a joined coalition of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS - every single one of them looking to empty their magazines into his slack-jawed face...
[I. The End of Lord Starscream]

I can't believe it's happ'nin', but I'm afraid that it's so
'Bots and Cons workin' to fight a common foe
It might make the next few fights a bit awkward, true
But I say it's worth it

Starscream is insane
But he's gonna lose it today
His reign is a joke
Could never handle the leadership yoke
Won't be a long fight
Even Shockwave wouldn't send us supplies
There's a ton of us
So it would be a waste of his stuff

Time to end his reign
With the same tactic we displayed
At the start, a rush
Overwhelm him with numbers quite nuts

He's not here today
But Shockwave would approve this display
The book-end nature would spark in his brain
The logic sensors he loves to inflame

Shockwave said to say
"I told you so" when we punch his face
And I think it's time
End the worst leader of all time

[II. Undead Freak]

This fight is unfair, so very unfair
No, Skywarp, don't tear my wings off right there
Know it wasn't fair what I did, don't care
This still isn't fair, I'm in bits, so there

How in the Pit am I not dead now (ooh-ooh-ooh)?
Please don't tell me that I'm some undead freak
Can barely feel my arms and legs now (ooh-ooh-ooh)
For the Autobots, this is unseemly
It seems rather ruthless, I don't get how (ooh-ooh-ooh)
My leadership warranted this real unlikely team
All the things that I did weren't that diff'rent now (ooh-ooh-ooh)
From you, Megatron, can't argue with me

All that I added was some flair
Shoulderpads, a cape, that sweet crown there
Called myself "Lord", why do you care
About my ego? It's not fair

What's that you say? That if I had stayed (ow, if I had stayed now)
Earth would be in ruins now (a burnin' wreck now)?
Means nothin' to me, but I guess that I can see (I don't care right now)
Why that would make you freak out
Ow, ow
Ow, ow, fine
I'm beggin' you, please spare me

[III. Why Should I Spare You?]

You're kiddin' me, no reason I can see
Why you're one that I should keep anywhere round here
It's where I went wrong each time that you've gone
And insisted that I've fallen, listen here
You're a waste of chrome, just a head I should throw
Into space, so please tell me, I'm waitin' (let me know)
Why should I spare you? It's the basic truth (let me know)
That my forgivin' you would be dumb (let me know)
Ev'ryone's ditched you, why should I spare you (let me know)?
Cause my patience with you is now none (let me know, know, know, know)

[IV. Trusted Lieutenant]

I'm your second-in-command
Must be for a reason, right?
You need a trusted lieutenant
Always there by your side
Other options may seem sound
But none of them will go far
Soundwave is always humdrum
And Shockwave plays little part
You know that I'm the right sort
To get you right through the day
Work out your anger on somethin'
Who can live through all the pain (don't wanna be a Decepticon idiot)
So won't you let me stay?
Just let me stay
Please let me stay

[V. Transform and Roll Out, Friends]


Now that we've done our job here, team (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Helpin' Megatron depose the tyrant Starscream (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Never thought that I'd say that, wow
I think we should leave
Just step over Starscream's left foot right there (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Those two are arguin', goin' nowhere now (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Could watch, but it's rude for a bot to stare
And it's a repeat

The cycle will spin round and round until the Great War's end
Starscream betrays, but he still won't be kicked right out
I'd speculate why Megatron keeps him around, but well
We should be goin'

Transform and roll out, friends
Transform and roll out, friends

You'd better load the energon inside my trailer, Hound (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Our payment, worth it? Don't know, but it's late, I need to recharge now, so (ooh-ooh)

Transform and roll out, friends
Transform and roll out, friends
Transform and roll out, friends
Transform and roll out, friends
Transform and roll out, friends
Transform and roll out, friends
Transform and roll out, friends
Roll (go, let's move, just go, leave 'em there, I know, I know, know, know how it goes)
Transform and roll out, friends (should go, leave 'em there, I know, I know, know, know how it goes) (ooh-ooh)

What a weird day, you can't deny it's true
But I wouldn't think you'd call it fun

And with that, the AUTOBOTS make their leave, slightly better off than they were before. The DECEPTICONS however, crowd around their former and formerly-former leaders, waiting to see how MEGATRON will react to STARSCREAM'S pitiful pleas...will he be banished? Imprisoned? Predictably reinstated?
