lyrics

I sold the throne and had nothing left to show
Just another day alone among the thieves

I stole the heart from a den of dealer’s art
While Penny Dreadful played the part for Mr. Grieves

I sold the moon and came running home to you
With the take in the pocket of my pants

I cursed the day that the innocent were stained
And more easily directed to the dance

Chorus
I pulled the beard of a tyrant
I kissed the devil in his sleep
I felt the desire of a preacher man
The view is beautiful but steep

I rode the wind to the gilded palace of sin
And I’d do it all again if given leave

I rode the surf to the molten core of earth
To test my _____ and my worth beyond belief
