Fools of Us All

It’s not that easy

to be a small boy,

who becomes a man

all by himself.

No other lands to conquer,

just heartbreak and betrayal,

and the one thing you should trust,

is you,

and that they’ve undermined.

They say the world can be kind

and it can be cruel.

They take away your crown

to make a fool,

in a room of other fools.

It just descends

to chaos in the end.

We wonder where

all the good kings are gone,

but we killed them all,

just one big fucking punch line.

Well, it’s not so funny,

when the enemy is here

and we’ve got no direction

to resist them.

Who’s laughing now?

That little boy grew

to be the king of fools.
