Lyrics

Some of us are born to rule the world
To raise it in one afternoon
And some of us are born with fame in our blood
Fed well from a silver spoon

And some of us wake up with tears in out eyes
Grow thick skin before our time
Some of weep, some of laugh
Turn our hands to the ultimate crime

But there are two roads
Straight line or the long way around
We’ll meet half way somewhere
Across the broken ground

Some of us took pleasure, some are showered with gifts
Bouquets of blind admiration
And some of us wait for the gravy train
And the stroke of some cheap sensation

Some of us drift, some are lost at sea
Ancient mariners in motion
With no time to sleep, no bed to rest
Navigate on a treacherous ocean

But there are two roads
Straight line or the long way around
We’ll meet half way somewhere
Across the broken ground, yeh

Some of us fly by the seat of our pants
We are masters of our own free will
Stick to the rules and
The good book says we are licensed to love and to kill

And some people dream the impossible dream
They imagine their just reward
Cry out for chaos, passionate love
Take only what we can afford

But there are two roads
Straight line or the long way around
We’ll meet half way somewhere
Across the broken ground, yeh
