I cut the wings off an angel's
Butterfly, hope she cries for you and I
Life is hard
Do or die
Ain't got
Nothing left
It's hot as hell
Today, pray

Oh mum, what has become of the evergreen?
Dear dad, don't be so sad
It's the way it's to be
It's like we took too much

I kissed the ring from a preacher's
Bible hand, nice and tanned
Forgiven son
Setting on a plot of land
That I stole
From Uncle Sam's
Mighty plan
To burn us

Oh mum, what has become of the evergreen?
Dear dad, don't be so sad
It's the way it's to be
It's like we took too much
Took too much
Took too much

Go out, make love to your wife
And behold you are free
Oh yeah you're king of the world
'Til you burn like us all like me, yeah
Oh yeah you're king of the world
'Til you're broken at heart
Oh yeah you're king of the world
'Til the next one is born
Oh yeah you're king of the world
'Til you're broken at heart
You're king of the world
'Til the next one is born
