Man Only Thinks He Rules This Earth

Man thinks ’cause he rules the earth he can do as he pleases
And if things don’t change soon, he will
‘Cause man has invented his doom
The first step was touching the moon
Now, there’s a woman on my block
She just sits there as night grows still
And she says “Who gonna take away his license to kill?”
Now, they take him and they teach him, and they groom him for life
And they set him on a path where he’s bound to get ill
Then they bury him with stars
They sell his body like they do used cars
Now, there’s a woman on my block
She just sits there facing the hill
And she says “Who gonna take away his license to kill?”
Now, he’s hell-bent for destruction, he’s afraid and confused
And his brain has been mismanaged with great skill
Yeah, all he believes are his eyes
And his eyes, they just tell him lies
But there’s a woman on my block
She just sits there in a cold chill
And she says “Who gonna take away his license to kill?”
He may be a noisemaker, spirit maker
Heartbreaker, backbreaker
Leave no stone unturned
He may be an actor in a plot
Might be all that you got
Till your error is clearly learned
Now he worships at an altar by a stagnant pool
And when he sees his reflection, he’s fulfilled
Yeah, Man is opposed to fair play
He wants it all, he wants it his way
But there’s a woman on my block
She just sits there as night grows still
And she says “Who gonna take away his license to kill?”
Yeah, who gonna take away his license to kill?
