"World Leader Pretend - Live From Into the Night on BBC Radio"

[Verse 1]
I sit at my table and wage war on myself
It seems like it's all, it's all for nothing
I know the barricades
And I know the mortar in the wall breaks
I recognize the weapons, I've used them well

[Chorus]
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize
Empathise
This is my mistake, let me make it good
I raised the wall
And I will be the one to knock it down

[Verse 2]
I've a rich understanding of my finest defenses
I proclaim the claims are left unstated
I demand a rematch
I decree a stalemate
I divine my deeper motives
I recognize the weapons
I've practiced them well, use them myself

[Chorus]
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

[Bridge]
Reach out for me
Hold me tight
Hold that memory
Let my machine talk to me
Let my machine talk to me

[Verse 3]
This is my world and I am the World Leader Pretend
This is my life
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

[Chorus]
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

[Outro]
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
