"Top Of The World" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
Is there anybody out there?
That wakes up with a bitter taste?
It's a king that we put up there
And he's a short way to fall from grace
It's slowly filling upward.
You can stand but you have no ground.
I hear it from the lost words.
They say its time that you lost your crown.

Don't be so greedy.
A dollar's a penny to you
When hearts are beating
Say what you want 'em to do.
Wasting away... I see you.
When the top of the world falls on you
Finding a day, don't want to be you
When the top of the world falls on you

Is there anybody out there?
That can see what a man can change?
It's better that you don't care
Because he knows that he's in his state
I feel the paranoia.
When there's a time, put you in your place
In the eyes of those who watch ya
Well they can wait 'til they hit your face

Don't be so greedy.
A dollar's a penny to you
When hearts are beating
Say what you want 'em to do.
Wasting away... I see you.
When the top of the world falls on you
Finding a day, don't want to be you
When the top of the world falls on you

Paint yourself a picture
When you waste another picture
And you win, and you win, and you win
Paint yourself a picture
And then you break another picture
And you win, and you win, and you win
And you win Yeah you win and you win

Don't be so greedy.
A dollar's a penny to you
When hearts are beating
Say what you want 'em to do.
Wasting away... I see you.
When the top of the world falls on you
Finding a day, don't want to be you
When the top of the world falls on you

Don't be so greedy.
A dollar's a penny to you
When hearts are beating
Say what you want 'em to do.
Wasting away... I see you.
When the top of the world falls on you
Finding a day, don't want to be you
When the top of the world falls on you

    General CommentI disagree FallOutBoyGirl4Life, I think this album is just a good, maybe even better than their self-titled album. The "Move Along" Album has songs that aren't about heartbreak, which was what the last one was all about. I think this one is them growing up a bit.

    But about this song... I think that "Top of the World" is about how you shouldn't be envious of people that are "on top of the world" because eventually their fake little world is going to fall...

    General Commenti can't believe no one has commented on this song! its one of the best on their album...i'm pretty sure it just is talking about people who are rich and apathetic that just wither away in their miserly distastes.

    General Commenthonestly? i actually like the new album better... I mean, the first was great and all but the new one has more content than just broken hearts.

    General CommentSo, its funny that no one has commented that this might be about President Bush... I hope it isn't. If it is its just another reason to throw this cd out of my car, as if all the other tracks werent enough...

    General CommentI can see where you think they may be talking about Pres. Bush...Personally, I'm no fan of Bush, I don't hate him, but I don't like him either; but I really am tired of hearing songs against him. OK Hollywood and Such! You hate him, I get it! There's another election in 2 and 1/2 years, geesh.

    General CommentThis song is about President Bush. These guys just aren't as good with their bashing words as Green Day was.

    General Commentdid they say so themselves it was about Bush? i reeally think its a song about how some people have it really made out for them, but like everybody else, you get a reality bite every once in a while,
    Move along isssssss that good people.
    This is one of my fave tracks
