"Everybody Wants to Rule the World" as written by Chris Hughes, Roland Orzabal and Ian Stanley....
Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you

Acting on your best behaviour
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
Everybody wants to rule the world
Everybody wants to rule the world

    General CommentTHIS IS MY OWN THOUGHTS OF THE LYRICS

    Welcome to your life
    There's no turning back

    ( it resembles a hard choice you made and after the choice you can't go back. So you must live with it )

    Even while we sleep
    We will find you

    ( it's the remorse and sadness of the choices that you made and even your dreams can't let you escape. so the remorse will always be with you )

    Acting on your best behaviour

    ( you try so hard to live with it and try to don't let it show to your friends/Family )

    Turn your back on mother nature

    ( you break the line of society and yourself and start to be a ''thug'' )

    Everybody wants to rule the world

    ( deep inside you you know that you want to rule the world. to have a meaning in live)

    It's my own design
    It's my own remorse

    ( it's the sadness that's controlling you. it designed you. it controls you to make bad choices )

    Help me to decide
    Help me make the most
    Of freedom and of pleasure

    ( the sadness is talking to you and it wants you to fill up the emptiness in your heart)

    There's a room where the light won't find you

    ( it's dark thoughts that can't be changed even by love or other things)

    Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
    When they do I'll be right behind you

    ( in the end the choices that you make will lead you to your doom. but the choices also brought happines and will die with you )

    So glad we've almost made it
    So sad they had to fade it

    ( you're glad that it ended. that it stopped your desire that it stopped you to rule the world. but it's sad that all the happy things will fade away)

    well that was my conclusion....

    Song MeaningI havent figured out the other lyrics yet,but:

    "There's a room where the light won't find you"

    means that there is a time and a place/a literal "room" where Only Evil will happen to you.A point where no God and No Man can save you..where "TheLight"(All Good Things),will NOT find you,like it has done before...A point where your Greatest fears come to life and that is the Inevitable End.The Final Room.

    I'll edit once I figure out the other lines but the song is Darker than people make it out to be.

    would love some feedback,thanks:)
