What do you think when you spit in my face?
How does it feel to accuse and to haze?
Now look at me, I'm not one of your kind
And I prefer to stay behind
And walk the wicked way

We don't wanna be like you
Don't you get that king of fools
We don't mind your life is trite
You are the king of fools

We are never gonna be like you
We don't follow - King of fools
You're the blind to lead the blind
And I walk the wicked way

You feel at ease as you flock with the masses
What do you see with your heads in their asses
Keep on railing at what I believe
Call me insane and I am proud to be
And walk the wicked way

We don't wanna be like you
Don't you get that king of fools
We don't mind your life is trite
You are the king of fools

We're not gonna be like you
We don't follow - King of fools
You are the blind to lead the blind - oh

We don't wanna be like you
Don't you get the king of fools
We don't mind your life is trite
You are the king of fools

We are never gonna be like you
We don't follow - King of fools
You're the blind to lead the blind
Blind to lead the blind.

We don't wanna be like you
Don't you get the king of fools
We don't mind your life is trite
We don't mind your life is trite

We are never gonna be like you
We don't follow - King of fools
You're the blind to lead the blind
You are the king of fools

    General Comment"King Of Fools" is just talking about nowadays entertainment industry. We're talking about creating a popstar artificially, you probably have those shows in Finland too (Idols, Popstars, Fame Academy, etc). And it's not just talking about that, it's talking about us as a heavy metal band being different. And when you're a heavy metal band people are always looking strange towards you and they're looking at you like you're from another planet. So it's just a statement that ok, maybe we are rock people, maybe we are different, maybe you think we're strange, but we don't care, we're proud of being different. Fuck you. That's basically the message and it's speaking probably for many people these days, who aren't into all those fashion things on tv that are going on right now. " - Tobias Sammet
