"Owner Of The World" as written by Stewart Armstrong Copeland, Les Claypool and Trey Anastasio....
He use to own the world
He use to be the one
Like hundred hungry dogs in heat
On cinnabar and rum
Ground and sift and washed it
Dried it in the sun
But his heart just wouldn't buy it
And his feet began to run
He use to be the Owner of the World
Now he's just another man
Who use to be the Owner of the World
Down an empty highway
Pass sycamores and oaks
Then stop for seven hours
The things he made us do
The owner of the world
Liked always taking more
Standing on the beach
Or walking out the door
He use to be the Owner of the World
Now he's just another man
Who use to be the Owner of the World

    General CommentThe idea that keeps popping into my head is the idea that the man in the song had everything he ever wanted, but he gave it up or lost it; now he is beginning to walk around and try to get more from life.
