lyrics

Is there something I am missing
You're all running in the same direction
Trying to hunt like a pack of wolves
Forgetting the ghosts that haunt you

Do you really think this is family
Hatred and anger as your only bond
Bragging your strength in numbers
And ending up alone

You're the king of the hill
Standing tall over ten feet of garbage and waste
Lord of an empire of traitors
and liars and cheaters and beggars
Your realm has no strenght at all
Only rumours and complaints
What a shame for a king

Is there something I am missing

You're all screaming like preachers on a mission
Treating like saints some stupid cowards
Only living by fashion and fiction

Let me rise, oh let me rise
Over nothing at all
Let me rise, oh let me rise
To be the king of nothing
I want to be the king of nothing

Throwing your words like daggers
Mocking everyone and everything you know
Thinking you are as wise
But no one cares and no one will ever do

Your feeble eyes have widened
At the sound of the expectable

You're the king of the hill
Standing tall over ten feet of garbage and waste
Lord of an empire of traitors
and liars and cheaters and beggars
Your realm has no strenght at all
Only rumours and complaints
What a shame for a king

Let me rise
Let me rise
Over nothing at all
Let me rise, oh let me rise
To be the king of nothing
I want to be the king of nothing

What am I hoping
What am I dreaming of
Why did I join your endless race to be alone

What is it this feeling
What is it that I got myself into
I ended up craving fame
Is this who I am?

Rise over nothing at all,
To be the king of nothing
I want to be the king of nothing
