Nothing Painted Blue - One Who Fell lyrics

I had an atom smasher/I was using it to mow my lawn

I was a party crasher/I used to stay 'til the rest of the guests were gone

I was an empire builder/with properties that hid the sky

I had a charcoal filter/but now there's nothing left for me to purify

Because you/took my world

And placed it somewhere I was not allowed

Yeah you/stole my whole world

Now I don't know how to knock you off your cloud

But the space you fill/is blank as hell

And if you go/it's just as well

But won't you throw a rope to one who fell?

One who fell

I had a stately manor/and a 9.7% yield

I was an urban planner/from Toluca Lake out to Bakersfield

I was a power broker/in my private Parthenon

I had an all-day sucker/but you took three licks and it was gone

Since you/stole the world

And put it where the air's too thin to breathe

Yeah you/stole my whole world

And left me down here where the serpents seethe

But the space you fill/is blank as hell

And if you go/it's just as well

But won't you throw a rope to one who fell?

One who fell
