Said I’m preaching this to you,
Nobody listens think of something and they treat you like a fool
thought that it was clear, nobody said that love was fair
Cause I’m a cruel man I’ll take it all away,
And I’m a king I’m here to stay…

Sold myself all of the book,
What brings you along this way feeling lucky wanna play,
But don’t do as I do, just do exactly as I say,
Cause I’m a cruel man I‘ll take it all away,
And I’m a king I’ll make you pay…
Cause I’m the cruel man I’ll burn it all away,
I’m still the king I’m here to stay…

I’ll take it all away, I’ll put it on the way,
I’ll take it all away, I’m running on the way,

Cause I’m a cruel man I’ll take it all away,
And I’m a king I’ll make you pay,
And I’m a cruel man I’ll burn it all away,
And I’m a king I’m here to stay,

Cause I’m a cruel man I’ll take it all away,
And I’m a king I’ll make you pay,
And I’m a cruel man I’ll take it all the way,
And I’m a king I’m here to stay

    General CommentGreat song. It sounds like it's a song about someone who just takes things from people, builds them up just to watch them fall. Someone who would take revenge on you for anything. Like a jealous lover or something.
