Gonna Go Far Kid Lyrics
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against one
Is an art that's hard to teach
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back in the line
A mob jumps to their feet

There are 3 possibilities, listed in order from most to least likely:
1.) It's about Lord of the Flies directly.
2.) It's about a situation similar to that of the one existing in Lord of the Flies. The "kid" is the manipulator, destroying everyone in his way.
3.) The singer and the unnamed mentioned "he" are the manipulator, and the "kid" gets them out of the way and goes on anyway, with plenty of LOTF references, of course.
References to lord of the flies include: "hit him right between the eyes" (referring to Piggy), "dance fucker dance" (the 'victory' dance of the manipulative guy), and "with a good disguise" (which refers to the manipulative guy's painted face).

Its About the book Lord Of The Flies. One big hint is it says lord of the flies at the end. But in the one part Dance ****** Dance man u never had a chance it was really only you its when Simon comes and the Hunters are dancing and kill simon cause they think hes a Beastie. Also hit him right between the eyes is when Piggy gets hit between the eyes with a boulder and dies. Its also about just manipulating. Also Show me how to lie is like Jack. And With 1000 lies and a good discise is Jack with his painted face and like lies,
