King Nothing

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett
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
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?
                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

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

Off to never-never land
