Danger, danger
The queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger
Life about to spill

Oh no, move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king
Tear him down
Kill the king, yeah
Strike him down

Power, power
It happens every day
Power, devour
All along the way

Oh no, move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
And fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king

Treason, treason
The spectre looms again
Treason, reason
The realm is safe and then

Oh no, move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the rainbow
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king, yeah
Tear him down
Kill the king, yeah
Got to take his crown down, yeah

Kill the king, he'll rule no more
Strike him dead, the people roar
Kill the king, yeah
Take his head
Down, down, down, down

Oh, kill
Oh, kill
Oh, oh
