I built a wall in China, I sank an ocean liner
                   F                                C                           G
I've wrecked homes, I've burned thrones, chasing the crown
            F          C            G                 F        C            G
I've put thorns in your feet, I spread plague in the streets
                    Bb                   F                          G
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 his Son come down
                        G              C                                G
I'm chasing the crown, the crown, I'm chasing the crown
I'm taking a turn in the right direction

By leaving his soul in the lost and found
                        G      F                        C
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"
