    I used to rule the world

    Seas would rise when I gave the word

    Now in the morning I sleep alone

    Sweep the streets I used to own

    I used to roll the dice

    Feel the fear in my enemies eyes

    Listen as the crowd would sing:

    "Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

    One minute I held the key

    Next the walls were closed on me

    And I discovered that my castles stand

    Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

    I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing

    Roman Cavalry choirs are singing

    Be my mirror my sword and shield

    My missionaries in a foreign field

    For some reason I can not explain

    Once you know there was never, never an honest word

    That was when I ruled the world

    (Ohhh)

    It was the wicked and wild wind

    Blew down the doors to let me in.

    Shattered windows and the sound of drums

    People could not believe what I'd become

    Revolutionaries Wait

    For my head on a silver plate

    Just a puppet on a lonely string

    Oh who would ever want to be king?

    I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing

    Roman Cavalry choirs are singing

    Be my mirror my sword and shield

    My missionaries in a foreign field

    For some reason I can not explain

    I know Saint Peter won't call my name

    Never an honest word

    And that was when I ruled the world

    (Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

    Hear Jerusalem bells are ringings

    Roman Cavalry choirs are singing

    Be my mirror my sword and shield

    My missionaries in a foreign field

    For some reason I can not explain

    I know Saint Peter will call my name

    Never an honest word

    But that was when I ruled the world

    Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
