"King Only" as written by and Greg Dulli....
Once
I thought I would be King
And get a piece of anything
A Kingdom has it coming to
If I flew high enough
To touch the hand of Venus
Would she stroke my face?
And promise me the Kingdom would be mine
If only I

Play me
Save me
Either way I'll be your baby
'Cause you don't have to tell me so
For me to know
That you don't love me anymore

Once
I woke up from a dream
And knew that things would never be
The kingdom that was promised me
And I fell far enough
To touch the hand of Lucifer
Stripped of all His glory
When He sat beside the King
And was denied

    General CommentThere is a bootleg on which GD explains that this song is about "a very real person, he lives in Cincinnati, Ohio".

    General CommentThat makes me even more curious about this song. The live version on "Live at Triple Door" is miles ahead of the studio version. The lyrics are breathtaking, and on the live cut the shining pared down guitars allow the beauty of the melody to shine with the lyric. Once agin, GD is amazing.

    General CommentThis song is about none other than ourselves. this represents the Truth in terms that we are all fed ways, little lies, subtle persuasions to give up following the Truth to fall for the devil's tricks. we all must fall into order to be saved.
