i just wanna be god lyrics – alice cooper

i’m in control, i got a bulletproof soul
and i’m full of self-esteem
i invented myself with no one’s help
i’m a prototype supreme

i sit upon my private throne
and run my lifestyle all alone
me, myself and i agree
we don’t need n*body else

i never learned to bow, bend or crawl
to any known authority
i really wanna build my statue tall
that’s all

i’m just trying to be god
i only wanna be god
i just wanna be god
why can’t i be god?

i got no time to take advice
i want to gamble with my eternity with loaded dice
i don’t need a preacher in my face
when i’m the omnipresent ruler of the human race

ain’t gonna spend my life being no one’s fool
i was born to rock and i was born to rule
but if i’m wrong on judgment day
i’m royally screwed with h*ll to pay

i never learned to bow, bend or crawl
to any known authority
i really wanna build my statue tall
that’s all

i’m just trying to be god
i only wanna be god
i just wanna be god
why can’t i be god?

i’m just trying to be god
i only wanna be god
i just wanna be god
why can’t i be god?

i’m just trying to be god
i only wanna be god
i just wanna be god
why can’t i be god?

i’m just trying to be god
i only wanna be god
i just wanna be god
why can’t i be god?
