And So It Went

Album: Death by Rock and Roll (2021)
  • And so it went the children lost their minds
    Begging for forgiveness was such a waste of time

    And the bullets start to fly
    And the bow's about to break
    When you hear them cry
    It's too much for me to take

    They said
    "The world does not belong to you
    You are not the king, I am not the fool"
    They said "The world does not belong to you
    It don't belong to you
    It belongs to me"

    And so it went the children lost their minds
    Crawling over bodies of those who gave their lives

    And the fists begin to throw
    And the fire starts to blaze
    Don't you think they know
    They're the fucking human race

    They said
    "The world does not belong to you
    You are not the king, I am not the fool"
    They said "The world does not belong to you
    It don't belong to you
    It belongs to"

    Everyone is crying out, I can hear them scream
    With all these eyes upon us, but no one seems to see
    That you and me are just the same as God meant it to be
    But you're much too close to me
    You're much too close to me

    So it went
    The children lost their minds
    Nowhere to run nowhere to hide

    And the wind begins to howl
    And the wolf is at your door
    You have so much of everything
    But still you wanted more

    They said
    "The world does not belong to you
    You are not the king, I am not the fool"
    They said "The world does not belong to you
    It don't belong to you
    It belongs to me"

    They said
    "The world does not belong to you
    You are not the king, I am not the fool"
    They said "The world does not belong to you
    It don't belong to you
    It belongs to me" Writer/s: Taylor Momsen, Ben Phillips
