  • Royal beggars, royal beggars
    Do you, do you, do you wanna
    Live forever, live forever
    Alone, alone, alone?

    'Cause we're broken
    All hope is dead, but we're coping
    Somebody, save our souls

    Like a bird in a cage, trying to fly away
    Is this the price that we have to pay?
    Overflowing with rage, yet we still obey
    'Cause we're asleep in a hurricane

    Bitter lovers, bitter lovers
    Let go, let go, let go 'cause it's
    Now or never, now or never
    Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in

    'Cause we're choking
    And left for dead, but we're coping
    Somebody, save our souls

    Like a bird in a cage, trying to fly away
    Is this the price that we have to pay?
    Overflowing with rage, yet we still obey
    'Cause we're asleep in a hurricane

    Are you listening? You may not have noticed
    We have totally lost our way
    Are you lost in the clouds? Or can you hold your focus?
    It's ourselves that we will betray
    Are you listening? You may not have noticed
    We have totally lost our way
    Are you lost in the clouds? Or can you hold your focus?
    It's ourselves that we will betray

    Like a bird in a cage, trying to fly away
    Is this the price that we have to pay?
    Overflowing with rage, yet we still obey
    'Cause we're asleep in a hurricane

    We sit on a throne, waiting for God to bend the knee
    But we're nothing more than royal beggars
    Yeah
    But I'm as guilty as the next man
    Our eyes are open, but we're not listening Writer/s: Alex Dean, Dan Searle, Josh Middleton, Sam Carter
