King For A Day

I wonder, oh how I wonder,
what it's like to be like you.
what it's like to be the King For A Day,
looking down on everyone else.
Tell me, oh King, what is it like,
to think you're superior, not like anybody else?

King For A Day,
sitting up high above,
like a proper king itself,
but not by much.
you rule the school,
and treat us non-superiors like dirt,
you have too many friends,
and many more enemies.

King For A Day,
the one most people hate,
the one who scares others,
so much that it hurts.
the one who thinks everything revolves around them,
the one who doesn't care if they lose any friends.

You know what,
I'm good thanks,
I don't want to see,
what it's like to cause pain,
to those around me.
I don't want to see,
what it's like to treat others,
like they don't belong,
and that they don't fit in to the harshness of society.

Imagine living like a King someday,
another night without a ghost in the walls.
no thanks, I'll be fine,
being that ghost in the wall.
because, I am the shadow screaming take me now,
and I'd rather die than live to rust on the ground.
