"Kingdom" as written by Holly Hardy, Rostam Batmanglij, Simon Le Bon and Charlotte Aitchison....
It's all black
Your kingdom's turned me blank
I'm paper and I'm snow
I'm lost but I can't slow
I'm lost but not alone

It's so light, the dark it burns my eyes
My bones, they used to glow
But now I'm throwing stones
I'm losing where to go

Shadows on my back are moving slow
They twist behind like white leaves in the wind
And as I ride, these horses will say fly
Falling hard, falling high, through your arms
Shadows in my head don't need no light
They stay through the night

Without you, my lips are turning blue
The water pulls me down
And drowns under your sound
This silence booms so loud

I'm locked up, your kingdom's like a drug
The chains are made of glass
I'm breaking through your blood
I'm never strong enough

Shadows on my back are moving slow
They twist behind like white leaves in the wind
And as I ride, these horses will say fly
Falling hard, falling high, through your arms
Shadows in my head don't need no light
They stay through the night

To every rose a bloody thorn
It lift you up and lets you fall
To rivers flowing yond the factory halls
Your kingdom's come, it's waiting still
The space between you'll never fill
I tried but I could not change your mind

I dance around, and I lost you now
I breathed you out, I kept you out
But if I could, I'd turn back around

    General CommentI don't know why they did this, but these are NOT the lyrics I submitted. I don't know what that lyric find thing is but it's pretty terrible at its job. I've noticed this with other songs I've submitted as well. Here are the correct lyrics:

    It's all black
    Your kingdom's turned me black
    On paper and on snow
    I'm lost but I can't slow
    I'm lost but not alone

    It's all light
    The dark, it burns my eyes
    My bones they used to glow
    But now, I'm throwing stones
    I'm losing where to go

    Shadows on my back
    I'm moving slow
    They twist behind like
    White leaves in the wind
    And as I ride, these horses will take flight

    Falling hard, falling high
    Through your arms
    Shadows in my head
    Don't need no light, they stay through the night

    Without you
    My lips are turning blue
    The water pulls me down
    I'm trapped under your sun
    This silence feels so loud

    I'm locked up
    Your kingdom's like a drug
    The chains are made of glass
    I'm breaking through the blood
    I'm never strong enough

    Shadows on my back
    I'm moving slow
    They twist behind like
    White leaves in the wind
    And as I ride, these horses will take flight

    Falling hard, falling high
    Through your arms
    Shadows in my head
    Don't need no light, they stay through the night

    To every rose with bloody thorns
    It lifts you up, then lets you fall
    Two rivers flowing under factory holes
    Your kingdom's come, it's waiting still
    The space between, you'll never feel
    I tried, but I could not change your mind

    I danced around
    And I lost you now
    I breathed you out
    I kept you out
    But if I could, I'd turn back around
