He used to own the world, he used to be the one
Like a hundred hungry dogs in heat or cinnabar and rum
Ground and sift and washed it, dried it in the sun
But his heart just wouldn't buy it and his feet began to run
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
Now he's just another man who used to be the owner of the world

Down an empty highway past sycamores and oaks
Then stopped for seven hours, the things he made us do
The owner of the world like always taking more
Standing on the beach or walking out the door
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
Now he's just another man who used to be the owner of the world

He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
He used to be the owner of the world (Used to be the owner of the world)
Now he's just another man who used to be the owner of the world
