  • All the things you said to me
    The manifest and destiny
    Well, all of this could go away right now

    And everyone was in the band
    And I was on another planet
    And then you, were all alone

    And you wanna be a big shot
    You wanna be the big man
    You wanna hold a big gun
    You gotta have a quick hand
    You wanna be the big shot now
    The chosen one your mother loved the most
    After all

    Early morning, still in bed
    You hate yourself for what you said
    But you could never admit you were wrong

    And every song was out of key
    And I was in the in-between
    And then you, still all alone

    And you wanna be a big shot
    You wanna be the big man
    You wanna place the big bet
    You better have a big hand
    You wanna be the big shot
    You wanna be the only son we love
    After all

    And you wanna be a big shot
    You wanna be the big man
    You wanna hold a big gun (big gun)
    You better have a quick hand (quick hand)
    You wanna be the big shot (the big shot)
    You wanna be the big man (big man)
    You wanna place a big bet (big bet)
    You better have a sick hand (sick hand)

    You wanna be the big shot now
    Big shot now
    After all
