World Leader Pretend (Live 1991 FM Broadcast) - Lyrics

I sit at my table
And wage war on myself
It seems it's all
It's all for nothing
I know the barricades

And I know the mortar in the wall breaks
I recognise the weapons
I've used them well

It's amazing what devices you can sympathize
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 defences

I proclaim that claims are left unstated
I demand a rematch
I decree a stalemate
I divine my deeper motives
I recognise the weapons

I've practised them well
I used them myself
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize

This is my mistake
Let me make it good
I raised the wall
And I will be the one to knock it down

Reach out for me
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 the 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 razed the walls that I've constructed
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize
This is my mistake
Let me make it good
I raised the wall
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 wall
And I'm the only one
I will be the one to knock it down
