R.e.m. - World Leader Pretend Lyrics





I sit at my table and wage war on myself

It seems like it's all...it's all for nothing

I know the barricades, and

I know the mortar in the wall breaks

I recognize the weapons, I used them well



This is my mistake. Let me make it good

I raised the wall, and I will be the one to knock it down



I've a rich understanding of my finest defenses

I proclaim that claims are left unstated,

I demand a rematch

I decree a stalemate

I divine my deeper motives

I recognize the weapons

I've practiced them well. I fitted them myself



It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...empathize

This is my mistake. Let me make it good

I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down



Reach out for me and hold me tight. Hold that memory

Let my machine talk to me. Let my machine talk to me



This is my world

And I am world leader pretend

This is my life

And this is my time

I have been given the freedom

To do as I see fit

It's high time I've razed the walls

That I've constructed



It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...emapathize

This is my mistake. Let me make it good

I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down



You fill in the mortar. You fill in the harmony

You fill in the mortar. I raised the walls

And I'm the only one

I will be the one to knock it down
