So just like that you're fucking dead and gone
You can only wear a crown of thorns for so long
We built an empire and you took the throne
But you built it from bayonets and sat there alone
So just like that you're fucking dead and gone
You can only wear a crown of thorns for so long
We built an empire and you took the throne
But you built it from bayonets and sat there alone

I hope your queen was worth it
Do you still serve her on your knees?
Because you sat when the world was at your feet
Just slept while we lived the dream

You won't miss the water
Till the river runs dry
You won't miss the sunset
Till it burns out the sky
You won't miss what you have
Till it's finally lost
But you don't miss a bastard
When you're bearing his fucking cross

Blacklist
Nothing but a blacklist
With friends like you
There's no need for enemies
With friends like you
There's no need for anything
Blacklist
You're nothing but a blacklist

Well, truth be told
I'm a little bit gutted
I mean you were always a prick
But we still seemed to love you
We started this together and it should have stuck
But there's no room for a useless, miserable fuck
Well I know I was a cunt in the final days
It just filled me with venom, filled me with rage
To see someone not give a shit
Despite of all of this

I won't see you around, I couldn't give a fuck
I'd rather slit my wrists than keep in touch
You're on my blacklist and there's nothing left to say
We're finished breaking our bones, dragging dead fucking weight
I won't see you around, I couldn't give a fuck
I'd rather slit my wrists than keep in touch
Blacklist
Nothing but a blacklist
With friends like you
There's no need for enemies
With friends like you
There's no need for anything
Blacklist
You're nothing but a blacklist

I won't see you around, I couldn't give a fuck
I'd rather slit my wrists than keep in touch
You're on my blacklist and there's nothing left to say
We're finished breaking our bones, dragging dead fucking weight
I won't see you around, I couldn't give a fuck
I'd rather slit my wrists than keep in touch
Blacklist
We're finished breaking our bones, dragging dead fucking weight

    The meaning is a lot like the song "thank god for esteban" by panic! At the disco. The song appears to be about some sort of event in past time, but the underlying definition is about trashing a particular person or group.

    This is not about curtis lol, him and curtis don't hate each other.. Curtis didn't want to be in the band any more.

    Can we forget about curtis for a second? This song just might be all about oli talking about how bad he hates god. This curtis episode'd then simply be a mirage for oli to not look so much like an all-out blasphemer. Mates, please try to see past what is in front of you.

    This song is obviously about Curtis leaving since that Oli and himself were on extremely bad terms before he left which is stated in the lyrics:
    "Well I know I was a cunt in the final days,
    It just filled me with venom, filled me with rage"

    What catches my attention though is that apparently, APPARENTLY, Curtis left over his hearing but this song rumors a lady-friend being involved:
    "I hope your queen was worth it
    Do you still serve her on your knees?"
