Transcript of Egotistical
Oh 'cause I'm so expressive and I'm so obsessed with my ego
My ego and it's message
Take a look at me now and take a look at my billing
I'm not in it as an extra, I'm in it for the killing
Ego by Elton John
"Well maybe it was childish, foolish, before schoolish
Immaturish, lose your coolish
But I had to grow and prove my ego"
"Take a look at me now and take a taste of the money
I'm not in it for the bread I'm in it for the gravy, honey
Step on the thin ice lightly"
The overall theme for
In Cold Blood
is egotistical. This theme is evident throughout the song "Ego" by Elton John.
"No fooling Dick... This is authentic. I've got a map. I've got the whole history. It was buried there back in 1821- Peruvian bullion, jewelry. Sixty million dollars- that's what they say it's worth. Even if we didn't find all of it, even if we only found some of it- Are you in Dick?"
Perry thought he knew exactly what his plan was going to be. Throughout the story Perry and Dick were in it for the money. They were always hesitant just like
stepping on thin ice
. Dick and Perry knew that their plan was risky the whole time.
“overly sensitive to criticisms that others make of him, and cannot tolerate being made fun of. He is quick to sense slight or insult in things others say” (297).
He cant stand being judged and hates being made fun of. He would much rather be admired than made fun of. Seems to be a mental thing.
"I thought of that goddam dollar. Silver dollar. The shame. Disgust. And they'd told me never to come back to Kansas. But I didn't realize what I'd done till I heard the sound. Like somebody drowning. Screaming under water." (244)
Perry seems to be unaware of his actions at the time of the clutter killings, and feels almost remorseful after. Although, Dick thinks otherwise and says that Perry is guilty for everything. They start blaming each other.
"He thought of himself as balanced, as sane as anyone-maybe a bit smarter than the average fellow, that's all." (108)
Perry believed that he was just like any other average human being. Although, he did feel that he was better than anyone else, allowing him to be foolish and having to prove his ego.
