lyrics

I, want, to be, king of everything
Like Henry the Eighth, or Henry the Ford, Al Capone
Although, I think those years are gone

I won’t fade, No I won’t fade

I, needed a coach, for so long
Shit, damn, well I want it all
I don’t want no referee
There’s fire in my eyes for your revelry
For all the wrong reasons
Would I live for justice, or would I make treason's
If I were in charge, I’d smoother your heart

I won’t fade, I won’t fade

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate won’t fade

Maybe I was wrong to say, those things ya know I meant
But it’s okay, you know I’ll, no it'll never be
I won’t fade, I will be

I won’t fade, I won’t Fade

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate won’t fade
