Three Kings

 

Three kings lower their crowns
Lift them from their heads and set them on the ground
I know I let you down.

I remember you highBig Snake
Gold star in the sky
Please try to believe me– I never wanted to lie.

Back then I lived in a cloud, my mind in a daze
As I danced like an animal up on the stage
And at midnight he carried me back to his home
So I could chew on his body like a dog on a bone…

And now I must atone.

Three kings lower their crowns
Lift them from their heads and set them on the ground
I know I let you down.

I remember you proud and tall
Head high on the wall
Please try to believe me– I’m sorry that I didn’t call.

But the buttons on his phone were too sticky to touch
And the scabs on my wrist started hurting too much
Cause at night they would open me up with their tools
And then lick at my body till I started to drool…

I disappointed you.

Three kings lower their crowns
Lift them from their heads and set them on the ground
I know I let you down.

Please accept regret for the things I can’t change
For the awkward moments I cannot rearrange
I know I don’t deserve your grace.

Cause the chicken they fed me
I knew it wasn’t fresh
Still I buried my teeth into its withering flesh
And I saved up the bones to keep track of the days
Till he came into my cage and just swept them away.

Then he walked like a king up the stairs to the light
While I was tied by a rope to a permanent night
I know I should do something, something other than freeze
Cause the sock in my mouth tasted like a disease
And I tried to think something, tried to think something smart
But the walls would turn wavy and then crumble apart…

I know I broke your heart.

Three kings lower their crowns
Lift them from their heads and set them on the ground
I know I let you down.
