The Greatest by Cat Power

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or waterfall could stall me
And then came the rush of the flood
Stars of night turned deep to dust

Melt me down
To big black armour
Leave no trace
Of grace
Just in your honor
Lower me down
To culprit south
Make ’em wash
A space in town
For the lead and the dregs
Of my bed i’ve been sleepin’
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
With brains that could explain
Any feeling
Lower me down
Pin me in
Secure the grounds
For the dregs of my bed
I’ve been sleepin’
For the later parade

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or water fall could stall me
And then came the rush of the flood
Stars of night turned deep to dust
