king for a day
(feat. kellin quinn of sleeping with sirens)

[vic & kellin quinn]
dare me to jump off of this jersey bridge
i bet you never had a friday night like this
keep it up, keep it up, let’s raise our hands
i take a look up at the sky and i see
red for the cancer, red for the wealthy
red for the drink that’s mixed with suicide
everything red

[kellin quinn]
please, won’t you push me for the last time
let’s scream until there’s nothing left
so sick of playing, i don’t want this anymore
the thought of you’s no f*cking fun
you want a martyr, i’ll be one
because enough’s enough, we’re done

[vic]
you told me think about it, well i did
now i don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
i’m tired of begging for the things that i want
i’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

[vic]
the thing i think i love
will surely bring me pain
intoxication, paranoia, and a lot of fame
three cheers for throwing up
pubescent drama queen
you make me sick, i make it worse by drinking late

[kellin quinn]
scream until there’s nothing left
so sick of playing, i don’t want to anymore
the thought of you’s no f*cking fun
you want a martyr i’ll be one
because enough’s enough, we’re done

[vic]
you told me think about it, well i did
now i don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
i’m tired of begging for the things that i want
i’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

[kellin quinn]
imagine living like a king someday
a single night without a ghost in the walls
and if the b*ss shakes the earth underground
we’ll start a new revolution now
(now! alright here we go)

[vic]
hail mary, forgive me
blood for blood, hearts beating
come at me, now this is war!

f*ck with this new beat
oh!

[kellin quinn & vic]
now terror begins inside a bloodless vein
i was just a product of the street youth rage
born in this world without a voice or say
caught in the spokes with an abandoned brain
i know you well but this ain’t a game
blow the smoke in diamond shape
dying is a gift so close your eyes and rest in peace

[vic]
you told me think about it, well i did
now i don’t wanna feel a thing anymore
i’m tired of begging for the things that i want
i’m over sleeping like a dog on the floor

[kellin quinn]
imagine living like a king someday
a single night without a ghost in the walls
we are the shadows screaming take us now

[vic]
we’d rather die than live to rust on the ground
sh*t
