lyrics

A ring that swept along his skin
There it held a spoken vow
Not to waste his ill thoughts on his kin
No one ever told him how
They just said be prepared
And even if you're scared
They'll be coming for you
They'll be coming from you

Oh well, he's a loner now
Tapping on the threshold of himself
Oh, if he's a knower now
Carrying the raft beyond the shore
Oh well, he's a loner now

Someday they will make him king
Even if he doesn't want it
Someday they'll make him everything
Even if he has to lose it all
Treasures buried with his bones
Never really even meant a thing
Even if he doesn't want it

A dirty girl then lets him in
Carrying a dampened towel
Asks when his journey is to begin
He couldn't even figure that out
He just said he's aware
When no one is there
They'll be coming for her
They'll be coming from her

Oh well, he's a loner now
Tapping on the threshold of himself
Oh, if he's a knower now
Carrying the raft beyond the shore
Oh well, he's a loner now

Someday they will make him king
Even if he doesn't want it
Someday they'll make him everything
Even if he has to lose it all
Treasures buried with his bones
Never really even meant a thing
Someday they will make him king
Even if he doesn't want it
