Smoke and mirrors 
It's a house of cards  Everybody has windows 
And big cigars 

The law of the jungle 
Is very new to some
The animals are vicious and arrogant 
And they eat their young

I used to work my job from 9 to 5
I just survived 

I was the king of the world 
I had every thing thrown at me,
That the judge and jury could hurl
I was the man of the hour
I would claw and scratch my way up,
To the very top of the tower 

 Helter skelter
It's a den of thieves 
Sea of errors 
That a greedy man weaves 

A few really bad apples  Always spoil the lot
 Rolling blackouts
On everyone's block 

I go to work and try to make ends meet
My life is over

I was the king of the world 
I had everything I needed,
I owned every type of girl
I was the man of the hour
I would claw and scratch my way,
Up to the very top of the tower 

I was the king of the world 
I had everything I needed,
I owned every type of girl
I was the man of the hour
I would claw and scratch my way,
Up to the very top of the tower
