Overview

An acoustic demo of "Egos" was recorded at Weezer's rented office space in 2003. The song was not listed in any public versions of the Catalog O' Riffs or in the Recording History and, as such, was unknown to fans prior to 2020. The song was among of hundreds of demos leaked through the demo storefront on riverscuomo.com on November 7, 2020, and was made available for purchase a few weeks later, on November 22, when it was released as part of the digital compilation Alone IX: The Make Believe Years.

Lyrics

Everyone should take a deep breath
Somebody is gonna get hurt
Look at what a tizzy we're in
Kicking with our heels at the dirt

Egos run wild
Egos run strong
We are getting ourselves in trouble
We are getting ourselves in deep
We are getting deeper in the madness
Can we ever tame this selfish streak?

Egos, egos, egos

Everyone should look round the room
Look at all the friends that we have
Why are we so eager to harm
Why is it so hard to be glad?

Egos run hot
Egos run cold
We are hurting everyone around us
We are hurting even ourselves
Why can't we forget about the madness?
Climb our way up out of this hell

Egos, egos, egos

Egos run wild
Egos run strong
We are hurting everyone around us
We are hurting even ourselves
Why can't we forget about the madness?
Climb our way up out of this hell

Egos, egos, egos
