I am the king of nothing
The emperor of emptiness
I don't have a castle
And I don't wear a crown

I recall as a small child
The dreams that I once had
Yes, I recall as a small boy
Those dreams which drove me mad

'Cause I once found myself a Kingdom
It was not too far away
I once found myself a Kingdom
But somehow I let it slip away

So I am the king of nothing
The emperor of emptiness
And I don't have a castle
And I don't have a crown

And I recall as a small child
Those dreams I once had
I recall as a small boy
Those dreams which drove me mad

I once found myself a Kingdom
And I thought that it was here to stay
Yes, I once found myself a Kingdom
But somehow I let it slip away

So I am the king of nothing
The emperor of emptiness
And I don't have a castle
And I don't wear a crown
