You're all alone on that great big throne
You pray for the day your kingdom is overthrown
You hear symphonies in misery
You're like the boy who cried wolf and got away

So muster your armies
You'll never disarm me
You'll have to burn me to the ground
For someone to witness such blatant resistance
Would be nothing short of profound

Once upon a time, before we crossed the line
Your heart would beat for nothing and for no one at all
But that was then and this is now
I can't wait to see your face when the walls come crashing down

You make believe that life is all a mystery
Your journeys for the answers have all come up empty
So there you sit with your crown of thorns
You'll save your tears for when the ships start washing ashore

Take a look at me now, I've been all around the world
I've been searching for something, I can't seem to find it
I beg you call off the dogs
Don't try to make an honest man out of me
I've been so reckless for so long
Can no one hear these rebel songs?

Is anyone out there?
