The Living Dead

The Living Dead
This life is mine Iím free to live
Live it as I please
Move aside and make me way
Give me happiness, pure bliss

This life is mine I am my own
First and forever
What I want I want now
Iím smart and Iím clever

This life is mine so shall I be
Let me have my way
If you donít it doesnít matter
You donít have a say

This life is mine I am the king
Even if Iím not
I want this I want that
I should call the shot

This life is mine so bow down now
The world revolves around me
Serve my fancies delight my whims
Youíre bound I am free
Bound to my own desires
Bound though you donít belong to me
Bound to my inflation
Bound to what I claim to be

Bound to my duties and desk
Bound to my pride
And I try to bind people
Yet pushing them aside

Bound to my greatest desires
Bound to my greatest love
Bound to the fear of losing
My only form of worth

This is my life I am king
King of the world
Over every resource and blessing
Every boy and girl

Bound to the crowns I own
So many gleaming in gold
Bound to the weight they carry
Bound to the lies I told

This life is mine or so I thought
Then one day I died
In sin and utter irony
That I was satisfied

This life is mine I didnít die
For from the day I was made
(Humbled to know a simple truth)
That I was already dead
