I'm a fortunate son of a fortunate son
Living large on the wrong side of town
Too many friends and the fun never ends
Drinkin' and hangin' around


I wanna rule the world, wanna swallow it whole
At least I could kick it all down
I wanna kick it all down


Eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be
My eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be


I don't take the bus and I never walk too far
The furthest I got was my own backyard
With a fist full of cash that somebody else earned
Send me some more when it all got burned


I wanna take control, wanna make it all mine
At least I could kick it all down
I wanna' kick it all down


Eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be
My eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be


You never ever know
You never ever know
You never ever know
You never ever know


I'll get what I want if I make up my mind
I'm turnin' you inside out


I wanna rule the world, wanna swallow it whole
I think I'll just kick it all down.
I wanna kick it all down.


Eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be
My eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be
Eyes wide open (repeat and fade)
