"Ruler" as written by and Marnie Julia Stern....
I have not slept for nights.
I look back over my shoulder just once.
That is right, nothing can hold me down.
I'll drag your body into the wild west.
But we will get out alive, this much I know.

Grabbing victory out of the jaws of defeat.
Is there no way out of the mind?
There are things to find,
Chaos is a friend of mine.

Ruler of the
Ruler of the

It takes pressure to make a diamond out of coal.
Staring through clothes, I can see hearts where I go.
What I need now is a gut feeling to let me know.
What I need now is a gut feeling to let me know.

Ruler of the
Ruler of the

I have not slept for nights.
I look back over my shoulder just once,
That is right, nothing can hold me down.
I'll drag your body into the civil war.
But we will get out alive- this much I know.

Ruler of the
Ruler of the

    "I have not slept for nights.
    I look back over my shoulder just once,
    That is right, nothing can hold me down."

    "I have not slept for nights.
    I look back over my shoulder just once,
    What I can't see is chasing me down"
