And every generation's got
The fearless few who can't be bought
They don't take polls or look around
They act on truth, and then they stand their ground

Come up and see the world stripped bare
The free indeed they breathe a rarefied air
Yeah, they got spirit, yeah, they got game
And some get christened
With a righteous-sounding name

Cornelius
Cornelius

And every generation knows
The doers do, the posers pose
'Cause every time the plop goes fizz
Another yes-man gets his

Come on and see the big man's boss
The mind clears out when you're taking up the cross
Yeah, his burden's easy no, it don't chafe
It's god's safe harbor why play it safe?

Cornelius
Cornelius

Core-strong like a centurion
I wanna be Cornelius
Core-strong like a centurion
I wanna be Cornelius

His kneel is real
His kneel is real
What rhymes with Cornelius?
Helium

The "Cor" is before a kneel, a kneel
The "I" is an "E" in us, in us
He's ready to fight but not to fuss
We like, we like Cornelius

And history proves the axiom
Surface skimmers choke on scum
Who's calling deep? Who opens wide?
Who put the just in justified?

Check, check it out the view you get
It's God's high-wire there isn't any net
Show a little spirit, show you got game
Show you know, we know, we know
You know what's in a name

Cornelius
Cornelius

He's ready to fight but not to fuss
We like, we like Cornelius
He isn't a wuss, he never was
We like, we like Cornelius
