lyrics

throne made of gold, diamonds, and pearls. no king lives forever. weaponry, armor, mighty stone castle. no king lives forever. royal rivals threaten. with tongues of rancor. no king lives forever. they’re hungry for power. thirsty for war. no king lives forever. your kingdom, their target. missiles soon will soar. no king lives forever. forced into battle. you reach for your sword. no king lives forever. you lead your men. into the battlefront (the front). through ground that will soon be. covered in blood (your blood). they fire first. bullet through your heart, their hearts. you lay helpless on enemy ground. unsound. they fire first. bullet through your heart, their hearts. you lay lifeless on enemy ground. uncrowned. sleep soundly now, wretched king. they tricked you into battle. no king, no king lives forever
