lyrics

King of the Ruined Castle

Normal Tuning
No Capo
Key Em /G

You wanted to be the leader you wanted to be the king
So you got yourself a new hat and threw it in the ring
You got yourself a running mate with morals just like yours
That telling lies justifies, anything for the cause

Now look what you've done, look what you've done, look what you've done
You're the king of the ruined castle, king of the broken land
King of the ruined castle, king of the shifting sand
King of the ruined castle, king of the broken vow
King of the ruined castle, for what good it does you now

You’ve got some wealthy friends who wanted to see you put in power
And their media empire screamed you were the leader of the hour
They poured in the money, to get you to the top
And once they set it rolling it was never going to stop

Now look what you've done, look what you've done, look what you've done
You're the king of the ruined castle....

The thing about kingmakers is they never show their face
They hide in the shadows betting on the race
Being a puppet master, makes you no-ones fool
They know the way to win it is, divide and rule

Now look what you've done, look what you've won, look what you've done
You're the king of the ruined castle....
