The King of Lies

This song was created for Game of Bands round 226 : "Random Tarot Card"

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Since I was young I wanted to believe
That becoming a king is mine too achieve
I took the chance to climb up,
Pushed away others, I made my mind up,

Break up, make up, rinse and repeat,
No fair play I know that I was a cheat.
They believed me when I said you can trust me,
The loved me, hated me, forgave me, dated me,

I didn't stop in my path to ask forgiveness
I didn't consider my lying to be a sickness

The choices I made brought me here
And on the top of my kingdom
I disappear

[Chorus]
I am the king, the king of lies
And now I’m here on top of my tower
and to get here I paid the price.

But when the lies were found
The tower I build started to crumble
and now I’m coming for the ground

[Verse 2]
A few casualties along the way
it became normal like night and day
I was blinded by my greed,
forgot to care, I just wanted to succeed

I looked up to others, but I wanted to look down,
So I build a tower, I put on a crown.
I thought I was unstoppable, untouchable,
but it turned out I was just dysfunctional

I didn't stop in my path to ask forgiveness
I didn't consider my lying to be a sickness

The choices I made brought me here
And on the top of my kingdom
I disappear

[Bridge]
still working in this part

[Chorus]
I am the king, the king of lies
And now I’m here on top of my tower
and to get here I paid the price.

But when the lies were found
The tower I build started to crumble
and now I’m coming for the ground

I am the king, the king of lies
And now I’m here on top of my tower
and to get here I paid the price.

But when the lies were found
The tower I build started to crumble
and now I’m coming for the ground
[Exit]
