King of California Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They say that I'm the King of California
Verse 2
They tip their hats and wave, but hey
Verse 3
Don't say I didn't warn ya
Verse 4
With the other hand they'll clinch their fist
Verse 5
and when you turn your back, they'll stab and twist
Verse 6
It's the life that we must live when we find fortune
There's a pocket-watch in the jacket on my shoulders
I feel its weight; time goes by and I keep on getting older
I reach for gold to place my bet
Brush past a half-toked cigarette
It's a lonely life inside my head
But still I'm hanging on, and I keep
Verse 7
Waiting, waiting all along for you to
Verse 8
Cave in, admit that you were wrong for all you
Verse 9
Gave me-- Oh, for all my pride, you were the fall of me
Verse 10
You owe me an apology
I've done some things I ain't too proud to say
There's a God above who'll come to judge but what's His hurry anyway?
See we've all got scars to prove our tests
You either walk away or you get left
I remember every word you said and still I'm hanging on
I just keep
Waiting, waiting all along for you to cave in,
Admit that you were wrong for all you Gave me
Oh for all my pride, you were the fall of me
You owe me an apology
Verse 11
I've walked a hundred miles in a day
I climbed the mount to stake my flag, and I
watched it fly away
You see, heaven has no time for this...
Man's crooked games or politic
It's a lover's war or a taker's gift
and it all gets washed away and still I'm
Waiting, waiting all along for you to
Cave in, admit that you were wrong for all you gave me
Fuck my pride, you were the fall of me
You owe me an apology
You owe me an apology
