Viva la vida/Domino dancing

Watch them all fall down
Watch them all fall down

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
sweep the streets I used to own

Watch them all fall down

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemies’ eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
“Now the old king is dead
Long live the king!”
One minute I held the key
next the walls were closed on me
Now I discover that my castles stand
upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
my missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
and that was when I ruled the world

Watch them all fall down

It was the wicked and wild wind
blew the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn’t believe what I’d become
Revolutionaries wait
for my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh, who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
my missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
and that was when I ruled the world

Watch them all fall down
