I used to rule the world
Sweep the streets I used to own
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
 
I used to roll the dice
One minute I held the key
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Next the walls were closed on me
 
For some reason I can't explain
And that was when I ruled the world
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Never an honest word
My missionaries in a foreign field
Once you go there was never
 
Oh who would ever want to be king?
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Blew down the doors to let me in
Revolutionaries wait
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
It was the wicked and wild wind
People couldn't believe what I'd become
For my head on a silver plate
 
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
But that was when I ruled the world
Never an honest word
I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
 
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
But that was when I ruled the world
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
Never an honest word
My missionaries in a foreign field
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
For some reason I can't explain
I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
