Ahhhh.. You will call me high and mighty And you will do what I say Oh yes you will!! Oh yes you will!! Oh yeah you will!! You will learn to bow before me And you will let me have my way Oh yes you will!! Oh yes you will!! And you should be afraid of what I can do Your just a little spec of dust in the palm of my hand Sometimes people wanna doubt me Some say I'm not the only one Oh yes they do Oh yes they do They foolishly do Some want to create a savior And others worship the sun Oh yes they do Oh yes they do But soon they'll be afraid of what I can do When I pour out my wrath upon them those heathens will drown I am the god of every god, I am Zeus that's my name Up in the sky, looking down I keep an eye on my domain Planet Earth down below, I decide who lives and dies I spare the ones who genuflect, go out and proselytize Tell the world Ahhhh.. I rule everything Ahhhh.. I rule everything Ahhhh.. I rule everything Ahhhh.. I rule everything

I'm really not the type To to be alone on a Friday night I need I need constant attention I'm not looking for the one One is not enough I need I need a dozen or more I'm a libertine, that will not be ignored I keep lovers for every occasion To satisfy my every desire I've got them in heavy rotation So they can do all that I require Eternal life needs a little distraction And sometimes I need to feel human Tonight I'm adding to my collection Young lovers for every occasion When you're out there on your own You don’t want to feel alone And I don't I don't want to be alone Some people need their space They don't want to suffocate They push you away when you want to get close So I keep my distance and spread my love around I keep lovers for every occasion To satisfy my every desire I've got them in heavy rotation So they can do all that I require Eternal life needs a little distraction And sometimes I need to feel human Tonight I'm adding to my collection Young lovers for every occasion One for the day And two for the night Three to my left And four to my right I keep lovers for every occasion To satisfy my every desire I've got them in heavy rotation So they can do all that I require Eternal life needs a little distraction And sometimes I need to feel human Tonight I'm adding to my collection Young lovers for every occasion I've got Young lovers for every occasion I've got Young lovers for every occasion

You feel safe inside Lying by a fireplace Where you can hide Far away from everything Out there in the world people can abuse you Take all that you've earned and try to undo you So rest a while In a castle made of blankets you feel Like a child Close your eyes and fall asleep It's a great escape that relieves your sorrow Isolate yourself to avoid tomorrow Because you, oh you, you are home Home Where you should be Deep in a slumber Away in a dream No one will hurt you They can't even try Life is better at home When you arise Reality sets back in and you're Paralyzed Scared to leave the fireside Out there in the world people can abuse you Take all that you've earned and try to undo you But you, oh you, you are home Home Where you should be Deep in a slumber Away in a dream No one will hurt you They can't even try Life is better at home

Black sheep That's what they all call me Outcast A god without a heart I'm hated No one really loves me They all seem to snub me But I don't feel alone Cause I believe That this world is for me And if you disagree I'll destroy everything Testy You best not make me angry My vengeance Slaughters those that do do do do I'm called a coward By a bunch of haters Blind to a true crusader They choose to live a lie Cause I believe That this world is for me And if you disagree I'll destroy everything War Violence feeds my soul War My hatred can't be controlled War The battle has just begun Can't you hear the drums? Cause I believe That this world is for me And if you disagree I'll destroy everything I'll burn it down I'll burn it down

It was faith that kept us stable And gave us some control It wasn't just some fable That everyone was told We were brought a message Delivered from above Each and every passage Taught us how to love But now you say you want to leave You want to break away And there is nothing I can do That will make you stay You won't go with a god Go with a god If Poseidon left the oceans The fish would swim away And if Zeus left the mountains To whom would we pray The world would be a disaster Without the gods in our lives Where would we find the answer To what happens when we die But now you say you want to leave You want to break away And there is nothing I can do That will make you stay You won't go with a god Go with a god Do you think I deceive you? Do you think this is all a myth? Are you having a break through? Or are you falling into an abyss? You won't go with a god Go with a god You won't go with a god Go with a god

Everything will be okay And then you're going to die It's something that you've got to face It's something that you can't deny Everybody worries about what tomorrow brings Then before they know it's time to go, they've got to give up everything It's a wicked life A wicked life It's a wicked life A wicked life People are always wondering What happens when they die Is there an afterlife Waiting up in the sky Is this all for nothing, is life only but a dream Then before they know it's time to go, they've got to give up everything It's a wicked life A wicked life It's a wicked life A wicked life Tomorrow is a promise That many don't receive Some don't want to hear this Others are just naive So sell all your possessions and go travel the world Because before you know it's time to go, you've got to give up everything It's a wicked life A wicked life It's a wicked life A wicked life

Oh Poseidon won't you put your trident down Oh Poseidon won't you put your trident down Start off with a strong foundation If you want longevity You've got to have good relations To create stability Find yourself a good location And plant an olive tree Surround yourself with good vibrations Trust and honesty Don't you get discouraged It's easier to say than do Compromise takes courage But love will see you through If you provide the inspiration It inspires unity When you start off with a strong foundation You create community Don't you get discouraged It's easier to say than do Compromise takes courage But love will see you through If you provide the inspiration It inspires unity When you start off with a strong foundation You create community When you start off with a strong foundation A strong foundation When you start off with a strong foundation You create community Oh Poseidon won't you put your trident down Oh Poseidon won't you put your trident down

I'm a hunter - working in the jungles at night My poisoned arrows fly though pale moonlight No one tells me what to do Aint got nobody to answer to I'm on my own and I can do whatever I like I'm a lone Hunter I'm a lone Hunter I'm a lone Hunter I'm a lone Hunter I'm hunter - I'm never gonna be a wife A man only brings stress, struggle, and strife And I'd rather be stuck with Hades Than tied down with a crying baby I don't need family interrupting my life I'm a lone Hunter I'm a lone Hunter I'm a lone Hunter I'm a lone Hunter Now I'm not saying That I'm happy Or that I planned it this way I'm just a hunter and hunting is all I know Hunter I'm alone Hunter I'm alone Hunter I'm alone Hunter I'm alone I'm alone

I'm just a fatalistic fool I'm always getting trampled (A victim of circumstance) I want to do what's right And set a good example But I never get a chance Or maybe I've just got bad luck I'm a child of royalty I should have all the answers (Privilege only gets you so far) I married a beauty queen But it turned into a disaster I didn't stand a chance Or maybe I've just got bad luck (Baby it's just part of the plan) But it's all too much for just one man (Your destiny has been determined) And maybe I've just got bad luck Black cats follow me Everywhere I go I wish I could break free But I'm in the undertow My fate is written in the stars I fear a retrograding Mars Or maybe I'm just stuck Or maybe I've just got bad luck Solo (Baby it's just part of the plan) But it's all too much for just one man (Your destiny has been determined) And maybe I've just got bad luck maybe I've just got bad maybe I've just got bad Baby I've just got bad luck

I used to get around But then I got married I was the talk of the town But then I got married My life was full of smiles Until I walked down the aisle Now all I want to do is die Ohh I used to be so carefree Sipping wine with the bourgeoisie But then I got married I had a lot to say But then I got married I used to have fun everyday But then I got married I am a hollow shell of who I used to be I wish that someone would relieve me of this misery My life was full of smiles Until I walked down the aisle Now all I want to do is die die die die Yeah I used to be so carefree Sipping wine with the bourgeoisie But then I got married Why did I get married? Oh it's too late, I'm married

Late nights With all my friends enjoying life Thinking The good times would never end We had a lot of fun Lately It seems like the party is winding down Friendship Makes me feel stranded at sea Everyone's moving on And they don't have time for me I've missed the boat And it feels so lonely Everyone has settled down But I don't want to give it up Because the life we once held dearly Is the life I want to lead Longing For lovers that longed to be near to me Wanting Nothing more than a kiss Love was a simple game Sinking Deep into currents I've never known Mourning The life that I thought we would live It's time to let it go Because life has more to give I've missed the boat And it feels so lonely Everyone has settled down But I don't want to give it up Because the life we once held dearly Is the life I want to lead And it feels so incomplete Without a strong family
