Metallica – King Nothing

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

 
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’s crumbled
And you’re left with just a name

 
Where’s your crown King Nothing?
Where’s your crown?

 
Hot 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’s crumbled
And you’re left with just a name

 
Where’s your crown King Nothing?
[Incomprehensible] Nothing
Where’s your crown?

 
I wish I may, I 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’s crumbled
And you’re left with just a name

 
Where’s your crown King Nothing?
Nothing

 
No you’re just nothing
Where’s your crown King Nothing?
No you’re just nothing
Absolutely nothing
Off to never, never land
