lyrics

I am the Half King
Royal and amazing
My subjects bow
And faun for favors
They come around
And frighten the neighbors

But it’s only when I’ve got
Something they want
It’s only when I’ve sold
Something they’ve bought

I am a pseudo-man
Presiding over
A garbage can
My courtroom swells
To twice its size
Just before
I announce the prize

But after everyone leaves
I’m left alone again
After everyone leaves
I’m stripped to the bone again

And so I sing_____

I am the Half King

And so I sing______

I am the Half King

A pious sovereign
Of all I survey
I promise tomorrow
To Pay for today
Take comfort in knowing
In your times of doubt
I mislead my readers
From the inside out

And if everyone wins
The who is left to lose?
And if everyone wins
Then there are no points to prove

And so I sing_____
I am the Half King

And so I sing______

I am the Half King

I am the Half King

I am the Half King

I am the Half King
