I'm a fortunate son of a fortunate son
Living large on the wrong side of town
Too many friends and the fun never ends
Drinkin' and hangin' around

I wanna rule the world
Wanna swallow it whole
At least I could kick it all down
I wanna kick it all down

Eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean?
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

My eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean?
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

I don't take the bus and I never walk too far
The furthest I got was my own backyard
With a fist full of cash that somebody else earned
Sent me some more when it all got burned

I wanna take control
Wanna make it all mine
At least I could kick it all down
I wanna kick it all down

Eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean?
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

My eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean?
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

You never ever know
You never ever know
You never ever know
You never ever know

I'll get what I want if I make up my mind
I'm turnin' you inside out

I wanna rule the world
Wanna swallow it whole
I think I'll just kick it all down
I wanna kick it all down

Eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean?
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

My eyes wide open, I can't see
Eyes wide open, what you mean?
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

Eyes wide open, eyes wide open
Eyes wide open
Eyes wide open, eyes wide open
Eyes wide open
