Once/Future Lyrics

Face down
A crater of the earth
A truth i fear to put in words
Huddled in the farthest corner
Of this dark oblivion
Inglorious and spurned

So 60 days and nights i roamed
Through the arid hell of the unknown
And at the stagnant water's edge
The image it reflects
Anonymous and bone

From rags to royalty
I am the once and future king
I am the once and future king
I'm caught up in the middle is all

Across the opal sea i sailed
Slept through the caustic furnace wail
A sight belied by words foretold
A sentry stood like stone
I asked him to be saved He said abandon you all hope
For another woeful wind has blown
At the backs of all those lost at sea
Screaming, "keep my heart, keep my broken bones"

From rags to royalty
I am the once and future king
I am the once and future king
I'm caught up in the middle is all
The emperors and the despots will fall

Love unrequited
Pain unsubsided
The undecided future weighs
On faith once relentless
Safe and unquestioned
'Til the glory dissipates
So summon a savior
Cry out in anger
For I swore I'd be okay

From rags to royalty
I am the once and future king
I am the once and future king
I'm caught up in the middle is all
From ashes i spread my wings
And fly atop my perch to sing
I fly atop my perch to sing
I never really meant it at all
