lyrics

The sun rolls round again for another day.
As I survey the scene and stalk my prey.

A grave misunderstanding spotted truths in a murky vale.
Stand up straight and open your eyes. Believe my lies. It’s what I live for.

It’s what I live for.

Every day’s another stepping stone.
Every night’s another winding road.
I wonder where it all went wrong.
Now the devil sings my song.

I’m a thick skin lover with the tongue of a mother and the hide of a crocodile.
A lion under friendly skies. Through the shades I smile. It’s what I live for.

It’s what I live for.
It’s what I live for.
Sitting on top of the world.

High time on the mid-afternoon.
Walking to the beat of a different drum.
No one here to tell me what to do.
Or give me a good talking-to.

I’m a long time tripper and they don’t come hipper than this careless charming man.
With my head in the clouds and my feet in the dirt. I don’t care. It’s what I live for.

It’s what I live for.
It’s what I live for.
It’s what I live for.
Sitting on top of the world.
Sitting on top of the world.
Sitting on top of the world.
