Back in the years before blood lost all its flavour
You slipped and fell but fell into my favour
But I chose the land between Dan and Be'er Sheva
'Cause I heard they were looking for a saviour


So I focussed my attentions on the wars in the west
Drew up a battle plan and put my armies to the test
Came walking through the stands
And you were wearing that dress
Lost my answers to the boys in the mess

Dropped to my knees and began to confess...

I control the world
You controlled my heart
And life was easier than watching evil empires fall apart
[Oh yes it was]

You saw that only my blood lust could tear us apart
So you raided my artillery for a tranquiliser dart
You steadied; took your aim and shot me straight in the heart
Let your tender reign over me, start

I spend the next twenty years with my head between your knees
All the while making sure you heard my cautionary pleas
There's a price on my head at which nobody would sneeze
'Cause I sailed and sailed the seven seas
Accumulating so many enemies

They would fall to me
And I would fall to you
And your the closest thing I'll ever have to Waterloo

When they write my history
Will they include all your conquests of me?

I control the world
You controlled my heart
Your light would always guide my armada in the dark
Your sight will be preserved in status and in art
And life was easier than watching evil empires fall apart.

    My InterpretationI thinks its "your sight would be preserved in statues and in art"
    and "Came walking through the sands"- makes more sense in this war context

    otherwise pretty sound lyrics i dont know what he says after "chose the land between" either.

    big fan of E6 this song is awesome.
