If I was king of all the rotten
Stealing filth from those forgotten
Would you be my queen of this desperate land, do you give a damn?

What if I had to scold you
Listen once but never tried and true
What if I had to trade you for another man, do you think I can?

[Chorus:]
I won't call on the angels, no
Beating on the line as I turn to amputate...
I'm bleeding on you

What if you were torn in two
What if I wanted to be like you
What if I was high like an aeroplane, would you look at me the same?

[Chorus]

If we walked side by side
Would you step stab my back and kill my pride
Or would you fall ahead, or would you move behind,
Tell me what's unkind

Now if I was king of all the rotten
Stealing filth from those forgotten
Would you be my queen of this desperate land, do you think I give a damn?

[Chorus]
