​Rest of the World

This song is by Big Wreck and appears on the album Albatross (2012).

Well there's this man of the world
Who gets all the girls
And does what he wants to
I was in his employ
Since I was a boy
Was the orders that I outgrew

The only thing I have to figure out
Is how can I take everything
And cut him out

Give me the rest of the world
All the pretty girls
And I should take doubles of everything
Find the one down below
Who knows it's all a show
Cause that's the only one thing
Bringing me down

Ask me how do I sleep
The skeletons I keep
It's easier than you'll know
What became of the man I replaced
Some may know his face
Kicking through the dirt and snow

There's one thing that haunts me
To this day
Just before I put him out
I heard him say

Give me the rest of the world
The diamonds and the pearls
I think I need doubles of everything
Find the one down below
Who knows it's all a show
Cause that's the only one thing
Bringing me down

A lone ambition
With a side of greed
(A side of greed)
At the expense
Of a friend in need
(A friend in need)

Give me the rest of the world
All the pretty girls
And I should take doubles of everything
Find the one down below
Who knows it's all a show
Cause that's the only one thing
Bringing me down

Give me the world
Give me the world
Give me the world
Give me the world
Doubles of everything
Give me the world
Give me the world
Give me the world
Give me the world
