So here I sit, eye in the pyramid
A nice little homophone with eye/I
Earl references a popular conspiracy theory (the eye in the pyramid on the one dollar bill often being linked to the “Illuminati”) — this can mean he sees/knows all. It was originally the “all-seeing eye.”
Being that the eye is on the top of the pyramid, and the pronunciation of eye in sounds very much like eyeing it could also mean that he’s aiming for the top of the game.
Referring to the previous line, Earl puts himself in that all-seeing godly role instead of praying to one.
