lyrics

You went to school on Daddy’s money
Paid by slaves, you thought it was funny
Now here you are running a nation
Built on lies and white domination
Your empty smile, your tiny wages
Children dying in boats and cages
While white people with outrages
Rule the world and nothing changes

But we’ll make sure
That someday you will know
The crown lies heavy on the king
Whoever you may meet
Wherever you may go
The crown lies heavy on the king

Violence solves nothing, that’s what you cried
But we’ll pull down monuments to your pride
We won’t build your wall, we’ll build a world for all
Where we can stand tall
Some things you can never buy
No matter how hard that you try
Someday you’ll run out of borrowed power
And we’ll make sure that you die

We’ll make sure
That someday you will know
The crown lies heavy on the king
Whoever you may meet
Wherever you may go
The crown lies heavy on the king
