Chorus:
Close my eyes as I fall
Thinking "I showed them all!"
They can't take this away from me now (from me now)

Hear them all cheer for him
Singing LONG LIVE THE KING
They can't take this away
They can't take this away from me now...

Verse 1:
Yes, feels like I'm fresh out the bonfire
Heart of a lion, ironfists of a scarred fighter
Part tiger, glowing eyes of a darksider
As I balance on a barbed wire through the hard times (I'm...) (STILL)

Persistent and patient
Dressed up in confidence, twisted and crazy
The kids tell the tale of a renegade spirit
They all thought went away, but he never did, did he?

Nah, I'm still here and my vision's still alive
I've already been to Oz, looked the wizard in the eyes
Like I know I've got a heart but something's missing in my life
So my eyes pointed up, blowing kisses at the sky

As I dedicate this to all my angels who never made it
And say a prayer for the brave ones who kept the flame lit
Through our darkest hours and toss some flowers
Inspired by their journey, we embark on ours... (Yeah! )

Chorus.

Verse 2:
No matter what they tell ya this is really me
Trying to hold my own, in a town where they won't let you breathe
Where loyalty means a guillotine
And they even pick our pennies out the wishing well just to kill our dreams

Always trying to make sure my confidence wearing thin
Like the DEA, they don't want to see the hero win
But I still get up on that stage like I don't fear a thing
Try to keep me on the ground, bitch, I'll grow a pair of wings

And spread 'em wide, flying high over the city
Where people still look down on me like I don't really fit in (BUT)
I don't give a shit though, wouldn't mind getting grimey
So give me your best competitor (and) I'll show you where to find me

And if I ever fail I just pray that I did
What I could, put a smile (up)on the face of my kids
Told my wife that I loved her everyday, that I'll live
For her love eternally, all rise for the king... (Nooow...)

Chorus.
