King Of The Clouds

Album: Pray For the Wicked (2018)
  • Heaven knows that I'm born too late
    For these ghosts that I chase
    With these dreams, I inflate, painted skies in my brain
    Every day, I'm Carl Sagan in space
    To escape this old world, this old world

    Some days I lie wide awake 'til the sun hits my face
    And I fade, elevate from the Earth
    Far away to a place where I'm free from the weight
    This whole world, this whole world

    I don't trust anything
    Or anyone, below the sun
    I don't feel anything
    At all

    I'm king of the clouds, of the clouds
    I get lifted, I get lifted
    King of the clouds, of the clouds
    I get lifted, I get lifted

    Some only live to die, I'm alive to fly higher
    Than angels in outfields inside of my mind
    I'm ascendin' these ladders, I'm climbin', say goodbye
    This old world, this old world
    And when I fall to rise with stardust in my eyes
    In the backbone of night, I'm combustible
    Dust in the fire when I can't sleep, awake, I'm too tired
    This whole world, this whole world

    I don't trust anything
    Or anyone, below the sun
    I don't feel anything
    At all

    I'm king of the clouds, of the clouds
    I get lifted, I get lifted
    King of the clouds, of the clouds
    I get lifted, I get lifted
    Imagination, take me somewhere I don't know
    I'm lost but I better find it alone
    King of the clouds, of the clouds
    I get lifted, I get lifted

    I keep searching
    Oh, I keep searching
    I keep searching
