There is grime on my face
There is crust in my eye
There is no-one in the place
But no-one said goodbye
This is how I start another day in my kingdom

There is hate in my heart
This is how my day starts
There is blood on my hands
From the murder of a man
This is how I start another day in my kingdom

And where is my queen
She's as gone as can be
She was a fine looking lady
And she liked to go down on me
And I liked to go down on her too

In Indya there's the taj
On good times there was rog
And here-ee look and see
All there is is me
This is how I start another day in my kingdom
This is how I start another day in my kingdom

There are good times to be had
Only insane's really bad
The lord and I agree
It's not too off to be
What we are
As long as we're royalty
You fuck and what's to do
It's not your kingdom too

    General CommentNo comments?? I think the problem is .. sadly .. most people have no idea who Will Oldham is .. but they know who Bonnie Prince Billy is. This song is awesome.

    General CommentGreat song. The guy is a total prick but he is simply covering up for his insecurities. At the end of the day, you feel more sorry for him than anything else.
