karma lyrics – kamelot

i am a king of honor
gold and glory
but every king must also die
have i been just and righteous
what is glory
i know i’ve torn and taken life
and here i stand
a small and simple man

who will trade his karma for my kingdom
a sacrificial rite to render truth
the fire in my soul rejects my wisdom
cause all you do in life comes back to you

i am a king in crisis
counting minutes
there is an ending to my reign
my sins have come to face me
i can feel it
that i have lived my life in vain
and now i know i’ll reap
the seeds i’ve sown

who will trade his karma for my kingdom
a sacrificial rite to render truth
the fire in my soul rejects my wisdom
cause all you do in life comes back to you

am i mad
i feel so void and cold
who can tell
who holds the stories untold
tired and trembling
i am descending
will i have to stay here
and live this life again
