  • Wow, you're telling me about this
    I'll tell you about that
    Stop talking shit you'll walk into another trap
    When all the time you know
    You know my name, you know my name, you know my name
    Just settle down you're losing the plot
    It took you a lifetime to get where you got
    If I had it all I'd be dead in a week
    If I had my way I'd be king for a day

    Oh wow, what's your band called mate? Well what's your band called mate?
    I'm sorry, oh I'm sorry but it's far too late
    Trying to start a war
    I heard it all before
    Now go fetch me a milkshake don't forget the straw

    Now I don't have the time to listen to this
    Don't know by now that the point you have missed
    Look what you've got
    It's love that it's not
    Don't care what they say, be king for a day, be king for a day

    We got the night, we got the world
    Into the future I give you my word
    Open your eyes into the light, into the light

    Wow, you smell of hotel soap
    Trying to tell your joke
    Over and over just blowing smoke
    Industry standard time after time
    The higher the mountain the higher I climb

    What is the point in trying to pretend?
    In single file we queue to the end
    Look what you've got
    It's love that it's not
    Don't care what they say, be king for a day, be king for a day
    Take all you fuckers and blow you away

    We got the night, we got the world
    Into the future I give you my word
    Open your eyes into the light, into the light, into the light

    Free from love, free from life
    Free from you I'm untouchable
    Free from pain, free from ego
    Free to rave I am rising
    I'm rising up, I'm rising up, I'm rising up, I'm rising

    Wow, you're telling me about this
    I'll tell you about that
    Stop talking shit you'll walk into another trap
    And all the time you know
    You know my name, you know my name, you know my name
    Be king for a day, be king for a day

    We got the night, we got the world
    Into the future I give you my world
    Open your eyes into the light, into the light
    King for a day
