king of the disco lyrics – rotten bark

if i was the king
of all the rotten
stealing filth
from those forgetten
would you be my queen
of a desperate land?
do you give a d*mn?

what if i had to scold you?
listen once tried and true
what if i had to trade you
for another man?
do you think i can?

i won’t call on the angels no
beating on the line
as i turn to amputate
i’m bleeding on you

what if you were torn in two?
what if i wanted to be like you?
what if i were high, like an aeroplane?
would you look at me the same?

i won’t call on the angels no
beating on the line
as i turn to amputate
i’m bleeding on you

-solo-

if we walked side by side
would you stab my back
and kill my pride?
would you fall ahead
or would you move behind?
tell me words unkind?

now if i was the king
of all the rotten
stealing filth
from those forgotten
would you be my queen
of this desperate land?
do you think i give a d*mn?

i won’t call on the angels no
beating on the line
as i turn to amputate
i’m bleeding on you
