The Overlord

This song is by Kingdom of Giants and appears on the EP Abominable (2011).

Lay your crown aside
Your tyranny I can't abide
You're a fraud, a liar in disguise
Rightfully the heir is mine

I'm not yet what I'm meant to be
A true king wearing a mask
You wear many faces, all of greed and misfortune
I am not you, nor do I intend to be

Silence makes its way into the room
Slithering on past everyone
It touches the hands of time
The dark lord has us at his will

We must hold our ground and keep the floor from shifting
We will not be silenced
We'll make our presence be felt now

I've seen you create empires and destroy them without warning
You hide behind your army and watch as they vanquish
You're not my king
You're a tyrant pretending to be
You're not my king

I call on the army of the dead
We will take vengeance on all this land
Arise, my fallen
We will not let this go undone

I won't allow you to consume me
I will show no remorse
You will be overthrown
This is our kingdom
Watch as we take what's ours
This is our kingdom
You will be overthrown
I won't back down now

And I won't bow down despite the words you've said to these people
You lied right through your teeth
And they won't be deceived now
You cannot break me
We'll stand on our two feet

I'll overrun the place I once called my home
I am my father's son, rightful heir to the throne
Watch as I take your last breath and take what is mine
You will bow down

You'll see a world of hate through my own eyes, through my own eyes
You're just a murderer
The king, my father's now a ghost
You've taken over what I'm earning back

There's only one way out
