Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

And when you see me
Better make a phone call
'Cause I'm a bad brained graphical fiend with no time at all
But just know that
I'll drown in sorrow
When I deposit your body in the dove coat, darlin', tomorrow

(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time
(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time

I'd sorta like to cross the Rubicon and battle for it

I paint my face red
But I'm wearin' purple
I'm a gladiator, high-heeled, opium-fueled, in a bubble
(Take, take, take, take) I take the gold plate
And silver metal
Heat it up, melt it down into a soup and help you to swallow

(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time
(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time

I'd sorta like to cross the Rubicon and battle for it

Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time

(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time

(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of,
It's just a matter of time
(There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of
