"King On Holiday" as written by William Roy Francis, Nicholas Alexander Wiggins, Angel Dejesus Ibarra and Jacob Samuel Davison....
This open letter read,
"I'm gone on holiday"
Started off as a secret headline.
"The king has passed away"
Goodbye to the world.
Goodbye to the pain.
Goodbye to the screaming children.
Your hero passed away.

Hey, Hey, Hey!
If you ever caught a glimpse of hell, would you kill time?
(All the lives are torn)
Hey, Hey, Hey!
If you ever caught a glimpse of hell, would you kill time?
(Every bastard mourns)
Hey, Hey, Hey!

I was born,
Try to suffer this fame.
I sold my soul for dirt.
Goodbye to the legend Elvis.
Goodbye to this whole shit world.

Hey, Hey, Hey!
If you ever caught a glimpse of hell, would you kill time?
(All the lives are torn)
Hey, Hey, Hey!
If you ever caught a glimpse of hell, would you kill time?
(Every bastard mourns)
Hey, Hey, Hey!
If you ever caught a glimpse of hell, would you kill time?
(Would you kill yourself?)
Hey, Hey, Hey!

    General CommentI really love the line "If you ever caught a glimpse of hell, would you kill time?"
    I don't have a clue what happens after we die,
    maybe if I did, I would care more about my life.
    I think we are all going to be surprised.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about the late great elvis presley. This song is basically saying elvis presley sold his soul. The opening set of lyrics talks about the discovering of when he passed away, the second set of lyrics saying he sold his soul. the chorus im taking it as "would you have killed yourself if you knew what hell was gonna be like? would you have killed more time" being would you have tried to stick around. personally i love this song, however i hate the message on this one, however almost what aiden always sings about is death.. i suppose i should have seen this one coming
