The Lyrics

Even as "The Great Beyond" was a sequel to "Man On The Moon," so too is "The Cave Below" a sequel to "Bat On The Moon." In "Bat On The Moon," there are lyrics that read "Gotham City's the place where everyone's cruel," parodying the lyrics of "Man On The Moon" that read "there's nothing up my sleeve" and which are repeated in "The Great Beyond," where they read "There is nothing up my sleeve" and hence lend themselves to the parody lyrics that read "All the people are so cruel."
The Cave Below
I watched my parents die before my eyes
Oh the horrors I have seen
I can’t believe that I believed I’d find some justice here
There’s a new order here in Gotham City
All the people are so cruel

I live in a mansion with a history
I’m prowling a city where the mean run free
Over my shoulder there’s a signal light
Flashing in the clouds

And all James Gordon does is not enough
But I don’t want to be a cop
Why don’t we realize that all that evil needs to win
Is for good people to be doing nothing

I live in a mansion with a history
I’m prowling a city where the mean run free
Over my shoulder there’s a signal light
Flashing in the clouds
I’m flying high I’m prowling streets
I’m keeping hoodlums in retreat
I’m getting my answers from the cave below

I want the criminals when they see me
To tremble in their boots
I’m feeding on their fears
Their superstitions too

I live in a mansion with a history
I’m prowling a city where the mean run free
Over my shoulder there’s a signal light
Flashing in the clouds
I’m flying high I’m prowling streets
I’m keeping hoodlums in retreat
I’m getting my answers from the cave below

I’m flying high I’m prowling streets
I’m keeping hoodlums in retreat
I’m getting my answers from the cave
Answers from the cave

I’m flying high I’m prowling streets
I’m keeping hoodlums in retreat
I’m getting my answers from the cave below

I’m flying high I’m prowling streets
I’m keeping hoodlums in retreat
I’m getting my answers from the cave
Answers from the cave
Answers from the cave below
It took me over thirteen years to get my mind together to write down these lyrics. But they also relate to Batman, as those of "Bat On The Moon" did, and they also relate to the fact that, even after all this time, James Carrey still remains a far better choice to wear the costume than not only Christian Bale but also, say, Ben Affleck.

I jumped over here just to see what else you did after tearing you a new one about "Parodying Parodists". This one was GOOD! Very poetic.
