The Kings And The Queens Are Dying

This song was created for Game of Bands round 108 : "People Lost in 2016"

Lyrics:

[1:20-1:40]
Those kings and queens you’ve always adored
That you’ve looked up to
That have brought you out from the dark
Their time is coming to an end.

[1:40-2:00]
The kings and the queens are dying
Those we have come to adore
One by one they die
And there will never again be anyone like them

[2:00-2:21]
In the end, cruel death teaches us a harsh lesson
While it may seem they are above us
They are actually our equals
When it comes to our ultimate fate

[2:21-2:41]
Brothers, sisters, all outside and in between,
Let us sing for them all
For those who never made it past this year
But will live on in our hearts

[3:39-3:59]
Brothers, sisters, all outside and in between,
Let us sing for them all
For those who never made it past this year
But will live on in our hearts

[3:59-end]
