king without a crown

Music and words by Mark Crozer and Andrew Shapiro

 

Here I stand at the end all alone
Staring down at these dried up bones
My dearest friends, you never questioned me
The man who survived
Who risked everything and lost it all

I’m a king without a crown
No castle, no queen, no family
No land to rule, no people to subjugate  
No armies to move
No dragons left to slay

But look at the shattering stars
As they sparkle on the last days of our history
The beautiful beckoning stars
May they light up the darkness eternally 

I’m a king without a crown
The last of the fallen emperors
But I’m still alive, I’m still holding on
The man who survived
The end of everything

But look at the shattering stars
As they sparkle on the last days of our history
The beautiful beckoning stars
May they light up the darkness eternally
