King For A Day
Battle Beast Lyrics


Welcome to the nightmare
Where villains wear the crowns
Fools rule a broken world
And fear grows all around
There's a bad king
A dreadful puppet on a string

He pretends to be a champion
Of the common man
Wants more division
In his lost and riven land
He plays with real lives
In the darkest game of life

His greedy eyes
Look insane, frozen smile like he's in pain
He doesn't count
The human cost but only money made or lost

King for a day
He kills the truth and looks away
King for a day
Lives like the world would end today
King for a day
What do you hide, why do you lie?

Who made the rules for this game?
Who is paying your champagne?
All the mercy in the world
Cannot save you anymore
King for a day

He knows how to justify
And how to feed the myths
How to glorify
The lies and hide the truth
He talks a lot but
His mouth is full of empty words

He has the right friends
Making shady inside deals
Before the story ends
We will be out of tears
Fools give the answers
Wise men don't even try

The time has come
To dethrone him but there's a new clone stepping in
Just more scum
Another greedy, rotten puppet on a string

King for a day
He kills the truth and looks away
King for a day
Lives like the world would end today
King for a day
What do you hide, why do you lie?

Who made the rules for this game?
Who is paying your champagne?
All the mercy in the world
Cannot save you anymore
King for a day

"I own the seas
I have the Earth on its knees
Give me another day
And I'll take your future away
Just vote for me again"

King for a day
He kills the truth and looks away
King for a day
Lives like the world would end today
King for a day
What do you hide, why do you lie?

Who made the rules for this game?
Who is paying your champagne?
All the mercy in the world
Cannot save you anymore
King for a day

Wise men don't even try

The time has come
To dethrone him but there's a new clone
Stepping in
Just more scum
Another greedy, rotten puppet on a string

King for a day
He kills the truth and looks away
King for a day
Lives like the world would end today

King for a Day
He kills the truth and looks away

Who is paying your champagne?
All the mercy in the world cannot save you anymore

How can a band like Battle Beast have so many awesome songs and NOT be known world wide????

Mert Gemicioglu

@Harri LMAO

Silvia Savioli

I am Italian and I like them, so they DO are internationally known 😅

Patrick Sharpe

@Harri I'm an American and I agree with such statements...never be anything more than yourself even if it costs you notoriety. Better music is worth the trade off 100%!

Went to Sabaton's concert in Chicago and had no knowledge that they were touring with Battle Beast. Seeing them start the show blew my fucking mind. And she sounds just as good as she does in video. Will never forget that day.

@Cerberus that gavel pounding WAS on time with the tempo...

I literally read "she pounds just as good as she does in video"
