The King Lyrics

2. The King (6:01)
Sonorous the death knell rings,
a proclamation of my failure.
My cursed blood doth run out,
run into cracks in the desert sands.
What awaits me after this life,
will I bear this guilt eternal?
I tried to shield her from this,
fate did not see it so.
I tried to shield her with him,
his failure stains my soul.
I see it was in my error,
A simple trust misplaced.
What can assuage this loss,
for which I cannot atone?
I now await the judgement,
the death he will receive.
But who can deliver me mine,
death, a judgement so fitting?
More blood must be spilled
to wash away this stain on my name.

And who can bear this crown,
bloodsoaked and forsaken?
An end to end all ends,
a beginning, shattered and broken.
My deliverance is unforthcoming
My noble attempts in bloody vain
I shake the earth with my impotent rage
and could only watch, I couldn't save her

A cascade of fetid blood will
flow from his liar's mouth
His failure I cannot forgive
will putrefy his name

Cast down the fantasy
Awaken to new dawn
