The Golden Apocalypse (King Midas)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 215 : "Fairy Tales"

Lyrics:

(Verse 1)
All has changed for the worse
The Dionysus curse
For when I tripped and fell
The world had turned to Hell
For all the world had died
And gained a golden hide
Frozen into place
Life gone without a trace

(Verse 2)
Earth, a metal ball of pain
With molten golden rain
The world of Olde has passed
The seas no longer glass
But solid golden floor

(Chorus)
Will Zeus strike me down?
In my regret I drown
The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
A genocide of gold
That all the gods will scold
I’m the Golden Devil
with a cold and golden soul

(Verse 3)
All the children stare ahead
Smiles frozen on their heads
But are they alive still?
Or statues on a hill?
The world is a still life
With scenes frozen in time
Life’s come to an end
Not even the gods can amend

(Verse 4)
Oh, the sky is falling down
As the clouds hit the ground
Pure gold lands down on me
Terminal velocity
A gold a blinding light

(Chorus)
Will Zeus strike me down?
In my regret I drown
The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
A genocide of gold
That all the gods will scold
I am the Golden Devil
with a cold and golden soul

(Verse 5)
I have made the Golden globe
Ended all life, I know
I’m the Golden Devil
And I am going psycho
To join my creation
Perform self extinction
I’ m the Golden Devil
God of Petrification

(Verse 6)
Should I give myself a squeeze
Among the Golden breeze
To join the tragedy
And end the misery
When Earth is history

(Chorus)
Will Zeus strike me down?
In my regret I drown
The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
A genocide of gold
That all the gods will scold
I am the Golden Devil
with a cold and golden soul

(Hook/Refrain)
Take all of the legends told
Touch them once, they turn to gold
All reality unfolds
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
All is glitter, all is gold
