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

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
Everybody wants to 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've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you'll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it ?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

    It is about the process of maturing our ego. About all the emotions we go through. But no matter how, the ligth ( love) will at one point in our trajectory reaches us. In other word, we will mature for it.

    A few lines stand out from the lyrical dada running through the hypnotic music; "there's no turning back," indicates a moment of deep realization in the present that the future is what may be. That sends the guitars off on a lovely contrapuntal riff in conversation with the drums which one wants to hear again. "all for freedom and of pleasure nothing ever lasts forever," shows a distinct flavor in the mouth as a result of actions taken that must be acknowledged and swallowed. It's evident in downwardly harmonic chords, that even participating in the best of life is temporary. Rejoice.
