I want to see you crawl 
As I drive by in my big black car
With police outriders
And a hundred guards
 Looking drop dead gorgeous  Dressed up to the nines 
In the skins of several species
In decline 
As I set fire to your houses 
And your cars
I'll be dancing like a dervish 
In the sparks 

Is this what true power feels like?
 Racing round my veins 
Like a motorbike 
It's the fall of Rome
My Caligula syndrome
It's the fall of Rome
My Caligula syndrome

I'll display you in my game show
On TV  Called 'Humiliation
And Hypocrisy'
 Throw an orgy for the dissolute 
And the damned  Every kind of deviation 
On demand 
So worship me
And fall down on your knees 
Or I'll unleash another
 Chemical disease

Is this what true power feels like?
 Racing round my veins 
Like a motorbike 
It's the fall of Rome
My Caligula syndrome
It's the fall of Rome
My Caligula syndrome

Have I become just a little deranged?
 While you're crawling on your hands and knees 
Like slaves 
Am I still desirable?
You're ever so destructible 
Do you think this party's ever going to end?
 Dance with me
 While our city is burning 
Won't you dance with me
 While our empire is falling 
Like Nero let's make music to the
 Fires of Rome

It's my Caligula syndrome
My Caligula syndrome
