King and Lionheart
Of Monsters and Men Lyrics


Taking over this town, they should worry
But these problems aside I think I taught you well
That we won't run, and we won't run, and we won't run

And in the winter night sky ships are sailing
Looking down on these bright blue city lights
And they won't wait, and they won't wait, and they won't wait
We're here to stay, we're here to stay, we're here to stay

Howling ghost they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart
A lion-heart

His crown lid up the way as we moved slowly
Pass the wondering eyes of the ones that were left behind
Though far away, though far away, though far away
We're still the same, we're still the same, we're still the same

Howling ghost they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart
And in the sea that's painted black
Creatures lurk below the deck
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart
And as the world comes to an end
I'll be here to hold your hand
'Cause you're my king and I'm your lion-heart
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart

Howling ghost they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart
And in the sea that's painted black
Creatures lurk below the deck
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart

Harrow

A kingdom once bloomed, for it was rich and colourful. The kingdom was so vibrant, that the happiness that loomed in the air manifested into its own being. This being represented good in its purest form. It would protect the kingdom.

Another kingdom existed, this one was a contradiction of the first kingdom. It was a grey and miserable kingdom, who's economy suffered due to the king only spending money on his army. The city was so pathetic that the misery that loomed in the air manifested into a being. This being represented misery in its purest form. The King of this kingdom saw the first kingdom, and grew jealous of its success. This jealousy and anger powered the being, allowing it to become a pure manifestation of hate. It became incredibly powerful.

Eventually, the second kingdom used its army to conquer the first kingdom, their army far superior to that of the first kingdom. The manifestation of happiness tried to defend the kingdom, but was overrun by the second manifestation and thus weakened.

The king and Queen of the first Kingdom were killed, with their son and daughter being captured to prevent an heir from taking the throne. They locked them up, and took over the kingdom. The daughter however saw an apparition, which helped her escape. It was another form of the manifestation, love, for the daughter loved her brother and wished to be reunited with him. This pushed her to find him.

The son saw an apparition as well, which helped him escape his prison. The apparition was another form of the manifestation, hope. For he hoped for a better future, to be reunited with his sister and for a Kingdom now fallen to be a kingdom one day restored.

While escaping, one of the apparitions was consumed by the manifestation of hate, and was erased. It was love. Despite losing the apparition, the daughter continued to find her brother.

The brother was still being guided by hope, and found himself in a secret vessel used as a means of emergency escape. The vessel turned on, and began to fly away. The apparition disappeared, while his sister who found him watched as he flew away, Saddened, but joyful that her brother escaped. She then began to run away from the other Kingdom's soldiers who continued to chase her.

In the kingdom now ruined, there only remained a sliver of the first manifestation, hope. Hope for the heir to return back to his kingdom, and to restore it back to what it once was. It continued to encircle the kingdom, too small to be seen by the giant manifestation of hate and misery, for only one person in the kingdom now had hope, the sister.

I'm in 2020 now .. one of the worst year in my life..
My dad passed 4 months ago, and today my is little twins sister birthday they turned 18.
And for the first time our dad wasn't with us
And they are just 18?
They are so young.
Even tho i am 20 i'm young my self.. but i just don't want them to feel this pain.
I can't count the bad things that happend to my family this year, eveyday we hope everything might go alright but after my dad it's like our lifes has turned upside down.
I used to listen to this song years ago ..
It used to be one of my fav songs, and i'm trying to be the lionheart for my family.
I'm trying to be strong for them
Cuz nothing in the world matters to me more than them..
And i just hope i really hope after years from now i'll read this again and i'll read my words again and i'll say "everything is alright now cuz it was just a bad year not a bad life"

Of Monsters and Men: "You know that one actually super-good artist on DeviantArt? The one that can draw and paint backgrounds and edit awesome VFX all at the same time? Oh yeah, all one of them? The only one worth a damn?"

All of Us: [Terribly afraid] "Y-yeah."

Of Monsters and Men: "We own them now. They belong to us... like a commodity, a playing card or a figurine. Every video will be beautiful; gorgeous beyond words. You will cry for the artist and cry during our videos. Most importantly, however, is what you must decide on from here on out. Now you must decide which makes you more sad: the artist's suffering or the content itself."

All of Us: "That's not fair!"

Of Monsters and Men: "Life isn't fair. Now quit writing accidental Youtube fanfiction, editing and then re-editing after the fact, because you're too drunk to realize what the fuck you're doing and just enjoy the damn song."

Me: "Wha~

And they won't wait, and they won't wait, and they won't wait.
We're here to stay, we're here to stay, we're here to stay.
Howling ghost they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
A lion-heart.
His crown lid up the way as we moved slowly
Pass the wondering eyes of the ones that were left behind.
Though far away, though far away, though far away
We're still the same, we're still the same, we're still the same.
Howling ghost they reappear

But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
And in the sea that's painted black,
Creatures lurk below the deck
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
And as the world comes to an end
I'll be here to hold your hand
'Cause you're my king and I'm your lion-heart.
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
Howling ghost they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
And in the sea that's painted black,
Creatures lurk below the deck
But you're a king and I'm a lion-heart.
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart
A lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart, a lion-heart

My son died at 7 weeks old from complications after open heart surgery in 2013; I first heard of this group from a very close friend who sent me a link to this video while he was still on life support because it made her think of him since we nicknamed him Lionheart.

Watching this video..... There's no way to describe it to it's full effect for me. Imagine that you're doing literally everything you can to save your infant son, but it's not enough (I actually asked the team of doctors if he could be saved if my heart was suddenly made available because they couldn't put him on the transplant list with all the complications he had); then you watch him as he escapes all the pain, the stress, everything, but you can't go/be with him (my husband and I were holding our son when life support was turned off, so I literally watched him leave us). That's what this video looks like and means to me <3
