I took the King's poison
& began to choke
as it trickled through me
nearly paralyzed, I awoke

I begged for you
and you pushed me down
thorns of anger
from your precious crown

I take the sting
of that mighty hand
upon my brow
and carry the King's brand

in this moment
I have taken the blame
for this scorn
my soul bares the shame
