Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown



Black dog drinks from the water trying to cool his tongue
Like the king finds no peace, his work is never done
Nightfall, smoke on the water, darkness closes in
Cold white hand in the deep will drown you for your sins



It’s a lifelong expedition, second guessing your decisions
Try to find out what’s been missing, pages keep on filling



Cryin’ out, go and wake the king
Coat of arms, for those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground, the walls are coming down
It’s do or die, do or die



Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown



Mad man, blood on the altar, the queen will have his head
His ghost will shake those rattling chains long after he’s dead
No soul knows his trouble high upon his thrown
Loved by few and judged by many he bares that weight alone



It’s a lifelong expedition, second guessing your decisions
Try to find out what’s been missing, and the pages keep on filling



Cryin’ out, go and wake the king
Coat of arms, for those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground, the walls are coming down
It’s do or die, do or die



Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
