  • Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah

    And when you see me
    Better make a phone call
    'Cause I'm a bad brained graphical fiend with no time at all
    But just know that
    I'll drown in sorrow
    When I deposit your body in the dove coat, darlin', tomorrow

    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of time
    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of time

    I'd sorta like to cross the Rubicon and battle for it

    I paint my face red
    But I'm wearin' purple
    I'm a gladiator, high-heeled, opium-fueled, in a bubble
    (Take, take, take, take) I take the gold plate
    And silver metal
    Heat it up, melt it down into a soup and help you to swallow

    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of time
    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of time

    I'd sorta like to cross the Rubicon and battle for it

    Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of time
    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of time

    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of time
    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of
    It's just a matter of time

    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of,
    It's just a matter of time
    (There's no mistaking that) Rome is gonna be mine
    It's just a matter of
