hello? hello?
calling a Karl Projektorinski
to the front of the cathedral
you have won, dear sir
may I congratulate you first?
oh, what an honor

human! human of the year! you won!...

why are you so scared?
you stand there shaking by your pew
the icons are whispering to you
they're just old men
like on the benches in the park
except their balding spots
are glistening with gold

human! human of the year! you won!...

you have won! hallelujah...

outside the cars are beeping
out a song just in your honor
and though they do not know it
all mankind are now your brothers
and thus the cathedral had spoken
wishing well to all us sinners
and with a psalm drew silent
till next year's big human winner

outside the cars are beeping
out a song just in your honor
and thought they do not know it
all mankind are now your brothers...

hallelujah...

hello? hello?
calling a Karl Projektorinski
to the front of the cathedral
you have won
