    The Greatest Lyrics
    Once I wanted to be the greatest
    No wind or waterfall could stop me
    And then came the rush of the flood
    The stars at night turned you to dust

    Melt me down
    To big black armour
    Leave no trace
    Of grace
    Just in your honor
    Lower me down
    That corporate slob
    Make a watch
    For a space in town
    For the lack of the dreds
    Of my bed I've been sleeping
    Lower me down
    Pin me in
    Secure the grounds
    For the later parade

    Once I wanted to be the greatest
    Two fists of solid rock
    When things I couldn't explain
    Any feelings
    Lower me down
    Pin me in
    Secure the grounds
    For the lack of the drugs
    My faith had been sleeping
    For the later parade

    Once I wanted to be the greatest
    No wind or water fall could stop me
    And then came the rush of the flood
    The stars at night turned you to dust

    I can see how it would remind you of that in a way. :)
