    WINNER TAKES ALL

So close and yet so far
The distance between the gutter and the stars
One actorís lifted from the crowd
While his peers remain
Scorned as drifters
Caste in shame

And winner takes all, and all play along
Just as if it were a game, laughing off the losers
And winner takes all, including the rules
And he can take it all with him, air sun and water

Hereís to the runner ups
In the gutter, silver medals in their hands
One was second on Queen For A Day
One fool picked door number one
Some go for broke while
Most stick with none

And winner takes all, the margin doesn't matter
Money brings more money while debt brings more debt
And winner takes all, including the rules
And he can take it all with him, air sun and water

Manís conquered deserts and seas
Winning spirit conquers famine and disease
But so many want to conquer
Other humans till they bleed
In full submission to the other's creed

And winner takes all and all play along
Just as if it were a game, sneering at the losers
And winner takes all, including the rules
And he can take it all with him, air sun and water
And he can take it all with him, air sun and water
And he can take it all with him, air sun and water
Air sun and water, air sun and water
Winner takes all
