Full of kings and queens
Where they would all struggle for dominance
Never mind having the same genes
Would today see a war zone?
Or would it go on and on
This passive-aggressive struggle for the throne?
Hoping I wouldn't be seen
Not wanting to be in anyone's way
In case I invoke the wrath of a king or a queen
Where the royals clash
Where the weather is unpredictable
A fight could erupt in a flash
But then I can't be out there
For my life is tied to this kingdom
A prisoner drowning in despair
When I was way, way young?
I couldn't remember when it began
The need to be invisible or to bite back my tongue
Where the princes and princesses are all grown up
Where their moods blow like the wind
You could get swallowed up without so much as a heads-up
Or take the lashes in stride
You are nothing but peasant trash
Just go on and hide"
Or would the words hurt me less?
Do I have a chance at all
In this deadly game of chess?
Where I feel I don't belong
But cruel Destiny cursed me
I've no choice but to play along
Never mind if it spells my death
Because what use is living
If you're miserable with each breath
Be alive as I could be
Death might claim me thereafter
But, at least even briefly, I was happy and free
I live in a kingdom full of kings and queens. Each day I would hunch my shoulders in, hoping I wouldn't be seen. I live in a kingdom where my life is drowning in despair. Was it always like this when it began? I live in a kingdom where "you are nothing but peasant trash". Do I have a chance at all? I live in a kingdom where I feel miserable with each breath. But one day I will be alive, happy and free.
