We have come so far
On this yellow brick road
We've come to meet the chief
Not some ugly toad
We want our sweet rewards
We want it all and how
We want what we want
And we want it now

We will never see
What's behind the curtain
It's our worst fantasy
That much is certain
What's behind the curtain

You made us a vow
You sounded sincere
We heard what you said
Or what we wanted to hear
Time to pay up
And give us our prize
Don't dare bait and switch
Or make up phony lies

Who the hell are you
We may never know
You have disappeared
Where did you go
You stole our dreams
You stole our cash
You stole our hopes
Gone in a flash
