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
