lyrics

The Cowardice of Kings

And the cowardice of kings comes out when you need him
At the moment of battle, the king has a crisis
He falls to pieces on the palace floor
cursing his counsel

The cowardice of kings comes in cruelty to the weakest
Go on, call him on it and you become his new enemy
You did nothing but ask a question.
Now your picture’s on the subway station wall.

We are innocent weapons.
You know we got played
Stick around, the weather will change
Stick around, the weather will change

The cowardice of kings makes everyone a traitor
Sees refugees as enemies and immigrants as invaders
Public dissent becomes a treasonable crime
We go back to the dungeon

We are innocent weapons
You know we got played
Stick around, the weather will change
Stick around, the weather will change

Oh. I never meant to leave your love
I’ve got to believe that love
Goes on

The cowardice of kings brings shame to the nation
When soldier and joker stand separate and hostile
Only after the first shots are fired
Do they know who they’re fighting

The cowardice of kings brings out the tyrant
The cowardice of kings brings out the tyrant

We are innocent weapons
You know we got played
Stick around, the weather will change
Stick around, the weather will change
