Self-aggrandizing is the process of claiming past accomplishments or attributes about one's self that promote one's self. Typically, these claims stretch the truth or may even be outright lies. Someone with delusions of grandeur would make self-aggrandizing claims--synonyms--complete idiot--massive unchecked ego dick/sack--throbbing tool boy--Donald Trump

 ********************

Verse:

 

Creeping, silently creeping up slowly at first,

but gathering speed and with a frightening burst,

the wolf's in the hen house, breaking down the door,

this one's self-inflicted--and not far away anymore.

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

Lead by a carnival barker who shouts before he thinks,

oh, the nasty shit that he spews from his jaw-flapping larynx.

 

Verse:

 

Infected friends and neighbors say how great he is,

yet he would fail even the simplest sanity quiz.

What is it about him I fail to understand?

  He's a beady-eyed, self-aggrandizing, ego-driven man.

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Chorus:

 

Beware, people, it's Insanity At The Gates.

By following this ferret-haired pied piper, our fate's

going down the shitter--don't listen at your peril.

It'll be like going over Niagara Falls, without the barrel.

 

Verse:

 

Not that that would help you much, but still, it's a chance.

Wish I could slap America and say, 'wake up from this trance!

For it's inexplicable to me--like lemmings, we're going off the cliff.

We'll learn the truth, the awful answer to the question, 'what if?'

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Repeat Chorus:

 

End
