LIVE LIKE A KING

Someone’s putting ice in the atmosphere
And soon this grand party is going down
Where innocence is nothing but a broken bow
And you bury your fine feathers in the ground
Paying out your dues on the time for misbehaving
Sending out a message tall as any wish
Pulls me into safety like a puppet on a string
Because were all attached to something that we need

I am afraid, yes afraid I am
Too much bad shit keeps going down
Til now I can no longer feel the spirit here inside of me
Like man without conviction, king without a crown
Someone’s putting ice in the atmosphere
And soon the war is blotting out the sun
Is your heart a virgin? Oh I pray for you my kin
Because the devil’s going to shaft it once again my love

Coming into life
You want to live like a king
You roll the dice
But you wont always win
Your faith will be sacrificed
Oh, it never ends
High life, high times, high price
That you will pay if
You want to live like a king
