King Nothing Lyrics

Wish I may
Wish I might
Have this I wish tonight
Are you satisfied?
Dig for gold
Dig for fame
You dig to make your name
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased

And it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing, just to play the King
But the castle crumbled and you're left with just a name
Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Where's your crown?

Hard and cold
Bought and sold
A heart as hard as gold
Yeah! Are you satisfied?
Wish I might, Wish I may
You wish your life away
Are you pacified?

All the wants you waste
All the things you've chased

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing. just to play the King
But the castle crumbled and you're left with just a name
Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Where's your crown?

Huh!

Wish I may, wish I might
Have this wish, I wish tonight
I want that star, I want it now
I want it all and I don't care how

Careful what you wish
Careful what you say
Careful what you wish you may regret it
Careful what you wish you just might get it

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger, but there's no one around
Just want one thing, just to play the King
But the castle crumbled and you're left with just a name
Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Nothing

Oh, You're just nothing
Where's your crown King Nothing?
Oh, you're just nothing
Absolutely nothing

Off to never never land

I'll keep it simple, and just say what the lyrics actually describe. Sounds to me like it's about a guy who spends his whole life doing nothing but trying to get rich. cept his plan goes to crap, and he realizes he's got a sucky life cuz he never tried to enjoy it. All he ever cared about was money.
