I had an atom smasher/I was using it to mow my lawn
I was a party crasher/I used to stay ’til the rest of the guests were gone
I was an empire builder/with properties that hid the sky
I had a charcoal filter/but now there’s nothing left for me to purify

because you/took my world
and placed it somewhere I was not allowed
yeah you/stole my whole world
now I don’t know how to knock you off your cloud

but the space you fill/is blank as hell
and if you go/it’s just as well
but won’t you throw a rope to one who fell?
one who fell

I had a stately manor/and a 9.7% yield
I was an urban planner/from Toluca Lake out to Bakersfield
I was a power broker/in my private Parthenon
I had an all-day sucker/but you took three licks and it was gone

since you/stole the world
and put it where the air’s too thin to breathe
yeah you/stole my whole world
and left me down here where the serpents seethe

but the space you fill/is blank as hell
and if you go/it’s just as well
but won’t you throw a rope to one who fell?
one who fell
