Lord Of The Flies lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by bernie taupin
Released as a uk b-side in 1986

Well he looks through the wreckage
But he cant find a photo of you
Then he ties me in knots
With riddles he chooses to use

And he says how come you two
Are the only ones here who survived
Oh I thought it was me
Who was destined to be
The lord of the flies

And who rules when fools leave, I do
Says the lord of the flies
Leave me your world, give me your earth
Swallow your foolish pride
And dont think Im wrong, its here I belong
Its mine, Im the lord of the flies
Lord of the flies
Lord of the flies

Then take all the money you want
Its the last thing we used for fuel
Here in the late great capital
We burned a bonfire for you

He knows we burned the harvest
And saw through his disguise
Hes no phantom at all
Hes the only thing left
The lord of the flies
