They say in chess you've got to kill the queen and then you've made it.
Oh I, do you
A funny thing, the king who gets himself assassinated.
Hey now, every time I lose
Altitude

You took a town by storm the mess you made was nominated.
Oh I, do you
Now put away your welcome soon you'll find you've overstayed it.
Hey now, every time I lose
Altitude
So divine
Hell of an Elevator
All the while my fortune faded
Never mind, the consequences of the crime this time my fortune faded.

The medicated state of mind
You'll find is overrated.
Oh I, do you
You saw it all come down and now it's time to imitate it.
Hey now, every time I lose.
Altitude

So divine
Hell of an Elevator
All the while my fortune faded
Never mind, the consequences of the crime this time my fortune faded.

Come on God do I seem bulletproof?

So divine
Hell of an Elevator
All the while my fortune faded
Never mind, the consequences of the crime this time my fortune faded.

So divine
Hell of an Elevator
All the while my fortune faded
Never mind, the consequences of the crime this time my fortune faded.
