In the court of kings

I look around

My blood runs cold

I close my eyes

Out of my head

A vision flows

I’ll make the rules

I need for my survival

For my survival


I pull the strings

You take the glory

I load the gun

You shoot me down

I’m on the edge

About to fall

Destructive power will

Make you lose your mind

Use your mind


We give our life

Invest in time

To only fools

Who take controll

I spend another

Cold day in hell

Against the odds

I fight for my survival

For my survival


Your useless life gets

Crushed into the ground

The time has come

To turn it all around
