lyrics

What he knew in his bones
Is that he never ever could be known
From where he came, so much hell
That to keep him free he'd have to learn to sell

And the words that kept him going
Planted deep as he was growing

If you want to dream, if you want to sing
Make a promise to me son
Live like a king and don't you ever see
What you would have become
Be the one who rules the other ones

New York sky, eagles' den
Lifted to a special place among all men
Driving hard, it's divine
When a gambler keeps on winning it's a sign

And the words that kept him going
Planted deep as he was growing

If you want to dream, if you want to sing
Make a promise to me son
Live like a king and don't you ever see
What you would have become
Be the one who rules the other ones
The one who rules the other ones
Rules the other ones
The other ones

And there's been so much giving back
Yet holy angels coming to attack
Heavy burden on a pillowed head
Should I let the river flow or are the fields already dead?

If you want to dream, if you want to sing
Make a promise to me son
Live like a king and don't you ever see
What you would have become
Be the one who rules the other ones
The one who rules the other ones
