I’d say “what went through your head?”
When I saw you let down our heritage
If I could just find the courage to say what's been on my mind
Then these past twenty years or so would have shown me some direction
But I swear that she tried her best to land my feet onto the straightest path
But their genetics restrained the way that I saw the world
I'm taking back the time you lost and pride behind our name
It's inevitable that I will not remain inside this place
It's needless to say that history won't change the way
That my heirs won't bare the shame


That their forefathers made
For this is who I am
My focus has gone astray,
Where is the model that shows my backbone needs structure?
And the palace has been overcome
and will continue all it’s crumbling for as long as I can see


I'm taking back the time you lost and pride behind our name
It's inevitable that I will not remain inside this place
It's needless to say that history won't change the way
That my heirs won't bare the shame


With the sea at my eyes, can I believe that the sky keeps on pulling?
Or that we are just too heavy?


I won't perceive myself to be a father of anxious legs
We grew together like the seeds planted in her barren field
But after you came out of the ground

You were carried (you were carried) by the swaying wind
You were carried so far away
It's never often that your skin will shed and fall to the soil
The roots from trees will grow between your skin and your bones
No I won't, I can't believe it


The dirt from under my fingernails was gathered while at the graveyard digging for your skeleton
I shouldn't be the only one to apologize
I shouldn't be the only one

But I am


This is all for Your Majesty
Even though I’ve been misleading, I was reborn
