Top Of The World Lyrics - The All-American Rejects

Review The Song (17)



"Top Of The World"

[Verse 1]
Is there anybody out there?
That wakes up with a bitter taste?
It’s a king that we put up there
And he's a short way to fall from grace
It's slowly failing upward.
You can step but you have no ground.
I hear it from the lost words.
They say its time that you lost your crown.

[Chorus]
Don’t be so greedy. (Don't be...)
A dollar's a penny to you
When hearts are beating
Say what you want 'em to do.
Wasting away... I see you.

When the top of the world falls on you
Finding a day, don’t wanna be you.
When the top of the world falls on you

[Verse 2]
Is there anybody up there?
That can see what a man can change?
It’s better that you don’t care
Because he knows that he's in his state
I feel the paranoia
When there’s a time, put you in your place
In the eyes of those who watch'ya
Well they can wait 'til you hit your face

[Chorus]
Don’t be so greedy. (Don't be...)
A dollar's a penny to you
When hearts are beating
Say what you want 'em to do.
Wasting away... I see you.
When the top of the world falls on you
Finally a day, don’t wanna be you.
When the top of the world falls on you

Paint yourself a picture
When you waste another picture
And you win, and you win, and you win
Paint yourself a picture
And then you break another picture
And you win, and you win, and you win
And you win, yeah you win, and you win

Don’t be so greedy (Don't be...)
A dollar’s a penny to you
When hearts stop beating
Say what you what 'em to do
Wasting away... I see you
When the top of the world falls on you
Finding a day, don’t wanna be you
When the top of the world falls on you

Wasting away... I see you
When the top of the world falls on you
Finding a day, don't wanna be you
When the top of the world falls on you

Media Coursework | Reviewer: nataley | 12/15/08

I agree with the video being about that one day the rich are going to have their world crashing down on them and that the poor society are sick of getting nothing compared to the rich. Im thinking of doing this song for my Media coursework and was wondering what anyone thought on a few ideas? I've had a few of where maybe someone could be holding the world up and it comes crashing down, but this would be fairly obvious. Or maybe like mizing the video with animation and having heads being crushed, but obviously it not shown them being crushed, i think this would be a rather cool idea tbh. But can someone please give me some feedback and maybe tell me what you'd like to see in this video?
Thanks :)

THE SONG IS TIGHT,IT HAS A VERY FAST PACED BEAT THAT WOULD HAVE ANY ONE MOVING.I THINK THE SONG IS BASICALLY ABOUT THE WORLD TODAY,HOW GREED HAS TAKEN OVER THE MINDS OF MOST HUMANS. IT IS AN AWESOME SONG.



Seriously | Reviewer: me | 2/18/08

How is everything about Bush and Iraq? That doesn't even make sense. There's a hundred million things wrong with the world, but it'sa song written about Bush's profit margin.

The guy sucks as a president, but be serious.



President Bush | Reviewer: shadeburn | 9/15/07

I don't think this song is about social status as much as politics. It's about President Bush's false war in Iraq. The war is not about weapons of mass destruction. It's about his stock in the oil companies. The united states is in Iraq so that the US president and vice president's profit margin doesn't decrease.



Awesome song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/17/07

I found this song about the time the all american rejects came out with dirty little secret. I listen to it all of the time. It has the highest play count on my iTunes by far. It is my favorite song of all time for and i dont think another song can pass it. I put it on when i clean my house and it gets me motivated. Its a bit dangerous when driving and listening to this song cause of its fast pace beat. So basically i love this song!!!



Burnout Revenge | Reviewer: Joe! | 8/20/07

I first heard this song in the playstation 2 gane Burnout Revenge.

I thought WOW this is an amazing song. if you listein to it loud on your mp3 player or mobile through headphones when your cycling really fast or whatever. this really gets you adrenaline pumping! its a legend song. i listen to it all the time. i sent it to my friend and she thought the beggining of this song is a bot weird.

about 2 days later she said she really got into this song! she likes it alot. she even compared it to be as good as kanye west! and i think it is as good. I am English and if they haven't already launched over here then I would definately buy this single! i mean its a legendary song. although i have it on my computer already and i can burn cd's but i would stil buy it! and the lyrics mean so much to me. i used to know someone who goes to a private school and he said they were a lot like the people who go there!!


legend song!



Great | Reviewer: Fan | 7/12/07

Like "Anonymous", I wonder why this band isn't as popular as many others. A lot of their songs I would've never even heard of if I hadn't investigated the band for myself. Now, some of these lesser known songs are my favorites, better than the more popular ones like Move Along and Dirty Little Secret(though both of those songs are fantastic).



Top of the world | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/11/07

I love it, they sing really good. I wonder why arent they so popular



WIKID! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/12/07

This is an awsome song by AAR! I'm sooo gonna learn it with my band... The meaning of the song is basically about social status and what Nick is trying to say is that The Rich are greedy and are just getting greedier. He is tring to say that one day the "top of the world" (where they are (top status)) "falls on you" (It will come crashing down one day). WHAT AN AWESOME SONG!!!



WOW | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/4/07

I'm amazed, really. This band is the best ever. They amaze me all the time. Thumbs up!
