The Once and Future King

This song is by Bloc Party and appears on the Canada and Target North America releases of the album A Weekend in the City (2007) and on the single Flux (2007).

Well I guess
This will be dismissed
As bitterness
And sour grapes

Champion grudge-bearer
Too much time with my own thoughts
It should be my name on their lips
But it's not

And I will wait
For my turn to come round again
And I will wait
However long it takes
However long it takes

See you're gonna
Be the next big thing
All the young girls
You could ever want

I heard your song on the radio
Like a fire-brand on my skin
So the war has begun
A pox on your houses

And I will wait
For my turn to come round again
And I will wait
However long it takes
However long it takes

I say round of applause
I say round of applause
(The new king of baloney says whatever he wants)
I say round of applause
I say round of applause
(Objection, overruled)

Passive yet aggressive
Drunk on Schadenfreude
Success has been cruel to me
My time will come again

And I will wait
For my turn to come round again
And I will wait
