    I'll teach you everything that I know now, Eddie
    If you really want to take the time
    But don't expect to get answers to anything, Eddie
    There is just one thing I've learned

    Through everything that I've done and tried
    Everything I have justified

    It's all vanity, all vanity, we try to have control
    It's all vanity, all vanity, 'cause chaos rules it all

    I always drive like a madman, Eddie
    But you'll soon get used to that
    I believe if you're moving fast enough, Eddie
    You don't ever have to watch your back

    I choose solid ground to make my stands
    And stay off the streets at closing time

    It's all vanity, all vanity, we try to have control
    It's all vanity, 'cause chaos rules it all

    Remember how it was out at [Incomprehensible]
    We climbed up to the peak and stood against the rocks
    The photographs came, you couldn't see us
    We were lost against the mountains like specks of dust

    And the mirror never lies, it's just these foolish eyes
    And we all see what we want to see
    What we need to see, what we have to see
    And so will you do just the same thing one day, Eddie

    I've been to that place a thousand times
    Looked over the edge so many times
    Wanted to jump a thousand times

    Well, we talk about saving the world now, Eddie
    It's our vanity gone mad
    She'll survive us all perfectly well
    When we're all long buried and dead

    Clever monkeys with technology
    Barely out of the caves and the trees

    It's all vanity, all vanity, we try to have control
    It's all vanity, vanity, 'cause chaos rules it all
    (It's all vanity, all vanity)
    Eddie, now let it go

    It's all vanity, all vanity, all vanity

    I turn my head away from here
    Down towards the rolling seas again
    I kneel and worship where I can
    The ground comes swirling up and through these veins

    It's all vanity, all vanity, all vanity
