"Everybody Wants To Rule The World" lyrics - ROBERT GLASPER

"Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
(Christopher Hughes / Roland Orzabal / Ian Stanley)
feat. Common & Lalah Hathaway

Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you

Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on Mother Nature
Everybody wants to rule the world
Everybody, everybody

It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the

Most of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever (Nothing is gonna last)
Everybody wants to rule the world (Everybody wanna rule the world)
Everybody, everybody (Everybody wanna rule the world)

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I'll be right behind you

So glad we almost made it
So sad we had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

As we move through time and space
And we all try to find our place
So many rulers, but who leads with grace, yeah

Greet 'em with the freedom, when I see 'em, yo, I read 'em
Scriptures of humanity, the spirit's colosseum
Step in the arena, my Medina, yo, my Mecca
Life is greener where there's texture, the meaning of the sceptre
Gods' rule is better, we move through your trepidation
It's a nation searching for it's foundation
Mother Nature's relation, you see agitation
So many admirables with no admiration
This is verbal vaccination, how do you react to it?
We needed Black Radio for pure Black music
The path to movement, show improve, improvement
For our homes and domes, we all had to move with
The times, as the world heals, we climb
It's no back to normal, 'cause normal don't recline
I'm a portal for rhymes, ask Shonda
I bridge tons of minds, so everyone can conquer
One rule, one mantra, you got me, then I got ya
The posture of a Rasta
I reconsider, I reevolve
I reconstruct, I see the I, we in all
We got understanding, then there's no need to fall
You know I got bars, so there's no need to brawl
Tryna change hearts like the angels did Saul
And pierce the Devil with the truth like Paul, that's all

Welcome to your life
