lyrics

The Rise of China, The Rise of China
Like my airliner
I'm right behind her, I'm right behind her
Like my airliner, like my airliner
Coming on like a ghost in the mirror
Coming on like a blow torch streamer
Coming on like heat from a steamer
Coming on like a new world leader
The Rise of China, The Rise of China
Like my airliner
Broke the chains that bind her, the chains that bind her
Like my airliner, like my airliner
Coming on like a ghost in the mirror
Coming on like a blow torch streamer
Coming on like lights in the theatre
Coming on like a new world leader
Coming on like blood through a needle
Coming on like a thug drug dealer
Coming on like a ghost in the mirror
Coming on like a blow torch streamer
Coming on like a nu-metal screamer
Coming on like a new world leader
