Marty about 'Ego'

The lyrics of Ego were based on a particular person that I know of, whose outlook to life is very narrow, basically because of his extreme self-centredness and I hoped that if he heard the song he might change his ways. I feel that all of us at one time or another go through a very self-centred time, but how much nicer we are when we think of other people. (1)
