   Year : 1980


I built a wall in China. I sank an ocean liner.
I've wrecked homes, I've burned thrones, chasing the crown.
I've put thorns in your feet. I spread plague in the streets.
I've sprung traps, confused maps, chasing the crown.

I'm chasing the crown till he bites the apple.
I was licking my lips till the sun come down.
I'm chasing the crown, crown, I'm chasing the crown.
I'm taking a turn in the right direction,
    by leaving his soul in the lost and found.
I'm chasing the crown. I'm chasing the crown.

I saw the tea float in Boston. I saw the live wire shock them.
I made them float, I made them drown, chasing the crown.
I laid the desert sands.  I froze the polar caps.
Well, they'd dry out, and I'd shout "Hey I'm chasing the crown".

I'm chasing the crown till he bites the apple.
I was licking my lips till the sun come down.
I'm chasing the crown, crown, I'm chasing the crown.
I'm taking a turn in the right direction,
    by leaving his soul in the lost and found.
I'm chasing the crown. I'm chasing the crown.
