Song Meaning
Verse 1
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Verse 2
Black dog
Drinks from the water
Trying to cool his tongue
Like the king
Finds no peace
His work is never done
Night falls
Smoke on the water
Darkness closes in
Cold white hand, in the deep
Will drown you for your sin
Verse 3
It's a life long expedition
Second guessing your decisions
Trying to find out what's been missing
Pages keep on filling
Verse 4
Crying out
Go and wake the king
Call to arms
For those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground
The walls are coming down
It's do or die
Do or die
Verse 5
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Verse 6
Mad man
Blood on the altar
The Queen will have his head
His ghost will shake those rattling chains
Long after he's dead
No soul, knows his trouble
High upon his throne
Loved by few and judged by many
He bears that weight alone
Verse 7
It's a lifelong expedition
Second guessing your decisions
Trying to find out what's been missing
And the pages keep on filling
Verse 8
Crying out
Go and wake the king
Call to arms
For those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground
The walls are coming down
It's do or die
Do or die
Verse 9
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Verse 10
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
