top of the world

[verse 1]
is there anybody out there?
that wakes up with a bitter taste?
it’s a king that we put up there
and he’s a short way to fall from grace
it’s slowly filling upward.
you can stand but you have no ground.
i hear it from the lost words.
they say it’s time that you lost your crown.

[chorus]
don’t be so greedy.
a dollar’s a penny to you
when hearts are beating
say what you want ’em to do.
wasting away… i see you.
when the top of the world falls on you
finding a day, don’t wanna be you
when the top of the world falls on you

[verse 2]
is there anybody out there?
that can see what a man can change?
it’s better that you don’t care
because he knows that he’s in his stage
i feel the paranoia.
when there’s a time, put you in your place
in the eyes of those who watch ya
well they can wait ’til you hit your face

[chorus]
don’t be so greedy.
a dollar’s a penny to you
when hearts are beating
say what you want ’em to do.
wasting away… i see you.
when the top of the world falls on you
finally a day, don’t wanna be you.
when the top of the world falls on you

paint yourself a picture
when you waste another picture
and you win, and you win, and you win
paint yourself a picture
and then you break another picture
and you win, and you win, and you win
and you win, yeah you win, and you win

[chorus]
don’t be so greedy
a dollar’s a penny to you
when hearts stop beating
say what you want ’em to do
wasting away… i see you
when the top of the world falls on you
finding a day, don’t wanna be you
when the top of the world falls on you

wasting away… i see you
when the top of the world falls on you
finding a day, don’t wanna be you
when the top of the world falls on you
