Throne Lyrics

From: Throne EP
Release Date: October 1, 2014

It’s all politics to you.
You try so hard to play the game
And you seemed shocked to find
I didn’t even know your name.
Did your confidence desert you
When you needed it the most?
Did your wounded pride consume you
When someone finally said no?

And your victories are many
But every hero has to fall.
And I wonder when you’ll learn
You’re not a hero after all?

We all see you smiling,
But inside you’re dying.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
And you just keep pretending
While your reign is ending.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne?

Now you’re losing ground,
Tripping on the palace steps.
You know winter’s on its way
But you just keep pushing ahead.
When they see you fast approaching,
They all know that they can’t fight.
So they burn down their own cities
And escape into the night.

And they leave you cold and lonely,
Too afraid to wonder why.
And your weaknesses get clearer every time you try to hide.

We all see you smiling,
But inside you’re dying.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
And you just keep pretending
While your reign is ending.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne?
Are you drinking to remember,
Are you drinking to forget
The person that you used to be,
Or the one you could’ve been?
And I won’t be your surrender,
You’re just too afraid to lose.
But still I fear you’ve somehow made me
Empty just like you.

We all see you smiling,
But inside you’re dying.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
And you just keep pretending
While your reign is ending.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?

We all see you smiling,
But inside you’re dying.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
And you just keep pretending
While your reign is ending.
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
What good’s a throne when you’re all alone?
