The King Is Dead


Yes, we will do as we are told

We are but soldiers

Just marching on and on towards your goal


Yes, we will give our lives for you

No questions asked

Just say the word, we'll fight to the very last


And one by one we die

For king and country

Yes, one by one we die

For king and country


We are the puppets, we are dancing on your stage

We are the killers, we're the hand of fate

We pull the trigger, we deliver all your hate

We will forever sleep, while you will stay awake


And one by one we die

For king and country

Yes, one by one we die

For king and country


Don't think, don't be clever

Don't you ever hesitate

Don't stop, but march forever

Just accept your fate

No man shall surrender, there will be no turning back

Just arm yourself to your teeth, get ready for the attack


Yes, we will do as we are told

We are but soldiers

Forever marching on towards your goal


Yes, we will give our lives for you

No questions asked

Just say the word, we'll fight to the very last


And one by one we die

For king and country

Yes, one by one we die

For king and country


The king is dead, long live the king

The king is dead, long live the king

The war is over, long live the war

The war is over, long live the war



All My Life


It took a lot of hate to get me here

But it could’ve taken forever

It took a lot of hate to get me here


It took a lot of love to finally wake up

To see the truth behind the make up

It took a lot of love to finally wake up


So, if you’ve seen me walking in the rain

Don’t feel sorry for me

I wouldn’t have it any other way


All my life, every single breath

Every stone I’ve turned, I’ve turned for you

All my life, every single step

Every bridge I’ve burned, I’ve burned them all for you


It took a lot of pain to feel alive

But that’s okay, hey that’s alright

It took a lot of pain to feel alive


It took a lot of pleasure to realise

Love cuts you like a knife

It took a lot of pleasure to realise


So, if you’ve seen me walking in the rain

Don’t feel sorry for me

I wouldn’t have it any other way


All my life, every single breath

Every stone I’ve turned, I’ve turned for you

All my life, every single step

Every bridge I’ve burned, I’ve burned for you


All my life, every single breath

Every stone I’ve turned, I’ve turned for you

All my life, every single step

Every bridge I’ve burned, I’ve burned them all for you



The Jester


Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention

The show’s about to start, I hope you’re ready

I will tell you jokes you’ve never heard before

I’ll make you dance, I will give you my all


I am the jester

I am the jester


The night has just begun, and here I stand before you

Until the break of dawn, I will entertain you

I’ll put on a magic show, just for you

You won’t believe your eyes and ears, I am the fool


I am the jester


I can make you laugh

Let me sing you a song

I will tell you all

A story of long ago


I am the jester

I am the jester


And now before I go, I thank you all

It’s been a blast, but this trick will be my last

So, watch me closely now, before I leave

I’ve got another ace up my sleeve


I am the jester

I am the jester


I can make you laugh

Let me sing you a song

I will tell you all

A story of long ago


I am the jester

I am the jester


I can make you laugh

Let me sing you a song

I will tell you all

A story of long ago


I am the jester

I am the jester



In My Darkest Hour


And in my darkest hour

Through a river of tears

I see the shape of you

The answer to my prayers


Open the door 

You’ve got the key

Through the wind and snow

Come set me free


Your demons will be the end of you

But my creation

Your pain and misery

Will lead to my salvation


Open the door 

You’ve got the key

Through the wind and snow

Come rescue me


One of us must die tonight

Oh, can’t you see

Only through your death will I survive

It’s killing me

One of us must die tonight

Oh, can’t you see

How it’s killing me


And in my darkest hour 

You break down before my eyes

And in the blackness of your heart

I see the truth, no more lies


Open the door 

You’ve got the key

Through the wind and snow

Come set me free


One of us must die tonight

Oh, can’t you see

Only through your death will I survive

It’s killing me

One of us must die tonight

Oh, can’t you see

How it’s killing me


One of us must die tonight

Oh, can’t you see

Only through your death will I survive

It’s killing me



Hill Of Skulls


People dying for nothing

Preceded by moral blindness

You can do anything you want to

There will be no consequences


Nations battling one another

In this timeline of the worlds history

Brother killing brother

The ebb and flow of global power


Another religious conversion

To expand its rule

Citizenship in exchange for loyalty

That’s how you get fooled


A military conquest, a political sabotage


On this hill of skulls

Where empires fall, where empires rise

On this hill of skulls

Where empires fall, where empires rise


Heroes dying for freedom

Outnumbered, but not defeated

Lord of lords, king of kings

You never saw it coming


It’s the sin of hybris

The abuse of power

The imposition of your will at all cost

Will be your downfall


Imperial collapse, power in chains


On this hill of skulls

Where empires fall, where empires rise

On this hill of skulls

Where empires fall, where empires rise


On this hill of skulls

Where empires fall, where empires rise

On this hill of skulls

Where empires fall, where empires rise



Burn The Sky


It’s been too long since we’ve been down this road

Release the tigers, back into the wild

No longer will we carry this heavy load

We’ll be flying higher than we’ve ever done before


Just push the door wide open

Here we go

This time we’ll make it last

On with the show


Here we are, together

We’ll burn the sky

Here we are, together

We’ll burn the sky

We’ll burn the sky


The sleeping giants won’t be asleep no more

Light a fire for everyone to see

All the diamonds in this whole wide world

Couldn’t shine brighter than you and me


Just push the door wide open

Here we go

This time we’ll make it last

On with the show


Here we are, together

We’ll burn the sky

Here we are, together

We’ll burn the sky


No more roaring silence, not ever again

We won’t be drowning in the devils lake

Just keep your eyes on the horizon

You’ll see the tigers, and you’ll see the flame


Just push the door wide open

Here we go

This time we’ll make it last

On with the show


Here we are, together

We’ll burn the sky

Here we are, together


Here we are, together

We’ll burn the sky

Here we are, together

We’ll burn the sky



Black Feathers


The storm has never been more dangerous

Than it is right now

Your life's on the line, who can you trust

Trust no one

There will be no shelter, nowhere to hide

The storm has never been more dangerous


Can you imagine its full power

With staggering scope

Picture yourself stranded by rising flood waters

Inch after inch of rain, killing all hope

Can you imagine its full power


We all knew this day would come

Open your eyes, look at what you’ve done


Black feathers falling to the ground

Black feathers falling from the sky

Black feathers falling down 


Roads will be flooded, heavy rain will fall

Right to your doorstep, it will come for us all

You’re in denial, sleep tight while you can

Roads will be flooded, heavy rain will fall


We all knew this day would come

Open your eyes

Now, look at what you’ve done


Black feathers falling to the ground

Black feathers falling from the sky

Black feathers falling down 

Black feathers


We are all living on borrowed time

When are you gonna wake up and realise

We will all face the same fear

We are all living on borrowed time


We all knew this day would come

Open your eyes

Take a look at what you’ve done


Black feathers falling to the ground

Black feathers falling from the sky

Black feathers falling down 

Black feathers falling from the sky

Black feathers falling to the ground

Black feathers



United States Of Oppression


You, the people, you’ve got the power

You, the people, you run the show

Don’t let ‘em rule you, don’t let ‘em fool you

You, the people, you’ve got it all


You need to rise to the occasion

You need to step into the light


How much longer will you let ‘em rape you

How much longer will you bite your tongue

You know you’re bound to get blood on your hands

How much longer will you let ‘em carry on


You need to rise to the occasion

You need to step into the light


In the united states of oppression

You cannot win without a fight

In the united states of oppression

Come on, step into the light


Time is running out, so don’t bow your head

Time is running out, but don’t be afraid

Together you’re stronger, together you’ll win the fight

Time is running out, it’s time to unite


You need to rise to the occasion

You need to step into the light


In the united states of oppression

You cannot win without a fight

In the united states of oppression

Come on, step into the light


You need to rise to the occasion

You need to step into the light


In the united states of oppression

You cannot win without a fight

In the united states of oppression

Come on, step into the light


In the united states of oppression

You cannot win without a fight

In the united states of oppression

Come on, step into the light
