WHO CRIES FOR THE KING?
And who cries for the King
With the rising Phoenix wings
As he flies on towards the Sun
While is own world comes undone
The hero he never meant to be
Bears every burden for you and me
The world he helped to find a voice
But did he really have a choice
He wields the scepter and wears a crown
The ones he never can lay down
But in the endless hour’s night
He chokes back tears with every flight
Screams within, still holding on
As blood he spills before the dawn
For all his gifts he would return
To free the wings he had to earn
So who cries for the King
With the Rising Phoenix wings
As he flies on towards The Sun
While his own world comes undone
Please show him Light. Just say a prayer.
As his wings move through your air.
The words to every fucking song
Are the words that never were ever wrong
Who cries for the King?
