When I landed on the shore the soil was soft beneath my feet

The sun was golden warm the air was clear and sugar sweet

Above a wooded hillside flew an eagle through the sky

The beauty of that moment merely whet my appetite

I wanted more, I wanted more, I wanted more


They came with tides of welcome sharing all they had to give

Without words I could tell what they spoke was live let live

They showed me to the fountain where great spirits rise anew

They led me ‘cross the mountain well before they ever knew

I wanted more, I wanted more


More, though my pockets were stuffed

I wanted more, I just couldn’t get enough

I wanted more, I wanted more, I wanted more


I felled the mighty timbers that rose high above the ground

I dug up gold and silver that was begging to be found

The valleys, hills and rivers that I conquered were renamed

The people I encountered were the savage to be tamed

I wanted more, I wanted more, I wanted more


Once each mile between the seas was under my control

History wrote destiny not a country that was stole

The tribes all were rounded into lands I didn’t need

I took the richest earth and left them with the dust and weeds

I wanted more, I wanted more




I stepped from the casino after all was finally lost

It was way too late before I realized the cost

When out comes a well dressed man with skin of red

I asked him how this happened, he said “Don’t you understand?

You wanted more, you wanted more”


More, when your pockets were stuffed

You want more, you just couldn’t get enough

You wanted more, you came for more, now you got more

More than you bargained for

More than you bargained for
