KING IN NAME ALONE
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1995 YUMMY POP TUNES (ASCAP)


HE THOUGHT HE TRULY HAD IT ALL
A KINGDOM AT HIS BECK AND CALL
RULER OF ALL HE HAD TO SURVEY
WITH TRAPPINGS OF HIS FORTUNE AND HIS FAME
BORN INTO A LORDLY POSITION
HE FELT TO RULE WAS HIS ONLY MISSION
THEY PASSED THE TORCH THAT HE GLADLY CLAIMED
HIS LOYAL SUBJECTS HAD RESPECT FOR HIS NAME


AND WHEN THE WANDERLUST JUST GREW AND GREW
HE SACRIFICED ALL THAT HE EVER KNEW
HE'S GIVEN UP HIS SEAT ON THE THRONE
WHAT ONCE WAS GOLDEN IS NOW FLESH AND BONE
HE'S DOOMED TO BE A KING IN NAME ALONE
NOBODY WILL LISTEN TO POVERTY'S STRICKEN
THERE'S FAMINE AND HUNGER JUST TWO WORLDS AWAY
WITH INFANT MORTALITY BEAMED INTO YOUR TV
NOW SEEMS THE PRIME TIME TO SAY

I WANNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
WHERE THE HUNGRY ARE FED
THERE'S NO MORE BLOODSHED
CAUSE NO ONE'S LEFT FOR DEAD NOW
I WANNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
WHERE WE'LL SUFFER NO MORE FROM THE RAVAGE OF WAR
AND OUR FAITH IS RESTORED

THE GREATEST OF HIS JESTER'S CAST
HIS MONARCHY WASN'T FIT TO LAST
HE TRIED TO CONQUER BRAVE NEW LANDS
NOW HIS COUNTRY'S HELD BY DIFFERENT HANDS

(CHORUS)

NOWHERE TO HIDE HIS HEAD IN SHAME
TRAPPED BY MEMORIES OF FORTUNE AND FAME
HE'S DOOMED TO LIVE A LIFE OF PAIN
HE'S DOOMED TO BE A ROYAL STAIN
HE'S DOOMED TO BE A KING IN NAME ALONE

(CHORUS)
