I was made a king even though I was born a coward.

You’ve perfected my own life, and made a beauty of my past.
I feel the darkness.

Knowing the fact I used to be a failure,
is what bothers me most.
Being reminded of my past
prevented me from growing
Into the man that I’m supposed to be through his eyes.
I feel like I’ve failed you, and I can’t forgive myself.

But then you bring me signs of forgiveness.
Through some of the people that mean the world to me.
Even those who’ve lost hope for me.

Who are you to tell me where I've been?
I walk this road alone, my life of sin.
My actions lead to now.
No jury. No council.
Lack of a word, I am king.
I am king.
Kneel before me my stewards.

I am king.
I am king.
I am king.

These aversions, replace my will
I will fight for this, everyday through mistakes I made cause
I don't need this, the violence makes me fucking bleed.
I will find myself in nothingness
To live; death in failure.
