"Everybody Wants To Rule The World" as written by and Roland/stanley Orzabal....
Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behavior

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

Say that you'll 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

    General CommentThis is a Tears for Fears song. Did Patti cover it? I remember seeing a Joe Strummer interview where he related seeing Roland Orzabal in a resturant and demanding (and getting) five pounds because he stole the title from 'Charlie Don't Surf'.
