Jesse Flood – King For A Day lyrics
King for a day
Defender of the faith
Never held in check
I'm king for a day
People think they can read me
I'm an encyclopedia, you better start at the beginning
I was king for a day when the revolution started
And the old guard saw the enemy at the gates and said
"You wanna wear the crown?"
King for a day
Defender of the faith
Never held in check
I'm king for a day
When people keep doing things to you
Because they want you dead and you go on living
You'll just look like death
A sense of community? More like a mob mentality
When in Rome? Well we're not in Rome
But you'd see fit to throw me to the lions
I got a bone to pick, not an ax to grind
But it's the world against me
Not me against the world, there's a difference
King for a day
Defender of the faith
Never held in check
I'm king for a day
Clinically, they'd say I was a psychopath
But that path was paved with many an injustice
I'm on the war path and you put me there
I am not the one
You think I'm the one? I'll be the last one
When I came I didn't set the world on fire
And when I left it didn't stop the world from turning
