lyrics

Devouring the world whole
And it might leave all of this behind

I was too young to know the difference
I was too old to even care
If it was evil or freedom

With iron fists and silvern lips
Clay feet and a stomach of gold
Beneath the shadow of the mountain
Lies a monument to all mankind

Grey King
Waste away
Twisted grip on a rule that will not stay
Grey King
Withering
End your reign

A selfsame sadness
A lost lust for life
This power, now madness
Has taken his mind

A heart like fire
A face like stone
A mind of water
And an iron soul

He folds his arms, waits so patiently for the days to pass
Yet he wants them back
The sun sets on a day
That’s lasted a thousand years
But they’re gone

He paints his smile on, but it dries and cracks
He loses light waiting for days to pass
Wishing that they’d pass him by
Praying that they slow down

He paints his smile, but it’s dry and it cracks
He loses light waiting for days to pass
Wishing that they would just pass him by
praying that they slow down

Grey King
Waste away
Twisted grip on a rule that will not stay
Grey King
Withering
End your reign

Grey King
Waste away
Twisted grip on a rule that will not stay
Grey King
You're whiling away

I was too young to know the difference
I was too old to even care
