The camera rolls over your old best friend
You don’t need him and you don’t need them
You’ll be dying in an instant, you’ll be dying all alone

It don’t matter what you did
There’s no comfort in a throne

The drugs are just a countenance for sleeping in the day
The things that you forget and the things you gave away
Are reminders of an absence and a life that you’ve outgrown

There’s nowhere that they can’t find you
There’s no comfort in a throne

Is it just your arrogance you easily betray?
On the doctors table we are all the same

Even when you’re king you can fall, you can fall

It’s a lonely proposition though it shelters you sometimes
And your comfort’s your condition,
though it seems like it’s a crime
Your brand new set of monologues will have to be postponed

Even when you’re royalty
There’s no comfort in a throne
