Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Black dog drinks from the water
Trying to cool his tongue
Like the king, finds no peace
His work is never done
Night falls, smoke on the water
Darkness closes in
Cold white hand in the deep
Will drown you for your sins

It's a lifelong expedition
Second-guessing your decisions
Trying to find out what's been missing
Pages keep on filling

Crying out, ooh go and wake the king
Call to arms, for those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground, the walls are coming down
It's do or die, do or die

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Mad man, blood on the altar
Queen will have his head
His ghosts will shake those rattling chains
Long after he's dead
No soul knows his trouble
High upon his throne
Loved by few and judged by many
He bears that weight alone

It's a lifelong expedition
Second-guessing your decisions
Try to find out what's been missing
And the pages keep on filling

Crying out, ooh go and wake the king
Call to arms, for those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground, the walls are coming down
It's do or die, do or die

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
