"Kiss the Ring" as written by and Gerard Way Michael Way....
Hail! Hail!

Kill the girls
To get paid
And put the whole damn room on the edge of a blade
You'll get far
Stay clean
And the world starts believing
I'll keep believing

That the world
Can make a change
But the suicide dolls are the last ones to mate
So come hard
Stay clean
And sing songs for the damned now

Hail! Hail!

'Cause the king is gone
And if you don't stop believing
We'll keep believing
And put the record on
And live the life that you're making
Shots that your taking
So grab the cash and run
And let the suits watch each other
Kill one another
It doesn't matter if the words don't mean a thing
You're gonna kiss that ring

Well alright

Move back the walls
And keep the faith
Don't leave a dry eye left in the back of place
Is it hard
To stay clean?
And if you all keep believing
I'll keep believing

That the world
Drives the saints
And put your shotgun shells
In the hills it makes

So come hard
Stay clean
Because we don't give a damn now

Hail! Hail!

'Cause the king is gone
And if you don't stop believing
We'll keep believing
You got your letter on
And live the life that you're making
Shots that you're taking!
It doesn't matter if the words don't mean a thing

You're gonna kiss that ring
You're gonna kiss that ring!

Hail! Hail!
'Cause the king is gone
Hail! Hail!
'Cause the king is gone
Hail! Hail!
'Cause the king is gone
Hail! Hail!
'Cause the king is
The king is gone

Hail! Hail! Hail! Hail! Hail!
'Cause the king is gone!
And of you don't stop believing
We'll keep believing
You got your letter on
And live the life that you're making
Shots that you're taking!
So grab the cash and run
And let the suits watch each other
Kill one another
It doesn't matter if the words don't mean a thing

Fist up
Head down
Hail! Hail!
To the king
