Long Live No King

and you know the truth, I know it too
we've lost much since the world was new
gone 'round and 'round but now we're through
and you've left me and I've left you
but there is still one thing we can do
oh, I'd rather be at war than be dead
and I've never seen a light I couldn't spread
no, I've never seen a light I couldn't spread

so i’ve become the middleman, the grey areas are fine
