"You Were the King, Now You're Unconscious" as written by Porter Marc Mcknight, Brandon Saller, Ektor Alex Varkatzas, Travis Miguel and Daniel Dan Jacobs....
There is no light in sight
Only a tunnel of pain
Only your legs will carry you
Carry you to the end!

Live your life for yourself
Or live for the struggle at best

Just don't let it strangle you
Just don't let it strangle you!

And after all this
No one will carry you home
And without a thought

You let your guard fall to the ground
Thought you were the king

But now it's gone
Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs

Try to savior it for one more song

The thick of the battle
A metaphor for this life
You never see it hit you
Until it smashes you in the face!

You try as best as you can
And I knock you down again

Just don't let it strangle you
Just don't let it strangle you!

And after all this
No one will carry you home
And without a thought

You let your guard fall to the ground
Thought you were the king

But now it's gone
Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs
Try to savior it for one more song

Get up!
Get up now
Get up right now!
I scream to myself

Get up!
Get up now
Get up right now!
I scream at myself

And after all this
No one will carry you home
And without a thought

You let your guard fall to the ground
Thought you were the king

But now it's gone
Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs
Try to savior it for one more song

    General Commenthere are more correct lyrics:

    There is no light in sight
    Only a tunnel of pain
    Only your legs will carry you
    Carry you to the end

    Live your full for yourself
    Or live for the struggle at best
    Just don't let it strangle you
    Just don't let it strangle you

    And after all this
    No one will carry you home
    And without a thought
    You let your guard fall to the ground
    Thought you were the king
    But now it's gone
    Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs
    Try to savour it for one more song

    The thief of the battle
    A metaphor for this life
    You never see it hit you
    Until it smashes you in the face

    You try as best you can
    And life knocks you down again
    Just don't let it strangle you
    Just don't let it strangle you

    And after all this
    No one will carry you home
    And without a thought
    You let your guard fall to the ground
    Thought you were the king
    But now it's gone
    Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs
    Try to savour it for one more song

    Get up
    Get up now
    Get up right now
    I scream to myself

    Get up
    Get up now
    Get up right now
    I scream to myself

    And after all this
    No one will carry you home
    And without a thought
    You let your guard fall to the ground
    Thought you were the king
    But now it's gone
    Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs
    Try to savour it for one more song
    Try to savour it for one more song

    General CommentI think this song is badass. my interpretation of it is that it is about not giving up in life, no matter how low you feel everything will get better eventually. Sometimes it takes something really heartbreaking and disastrous to cause it, but as they say, whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Just live life for yourself, cause in the end you really only have yourself to rely on. Very good lyrics

    General CommentThis song is great. I agree with misfit1573 and the lyrics are great especially at the end. Those last two lines are really powerful.
