Dethroned Lyrics

 

Lyrics for “Dethroned” by black midi

 

Defaced
Dethroned
The fate
Unknown
Unsure
Unkempt
His pride
None left

 

Snatched with rage, his gift was thrown
Blindly into the depths below
Irretrievable under that stone

 

Almost stopped
On the brink
Somehow
He still thinks
Today is
Just a blip
The footnote that ends his entry at the centre
of
All self-respecting encyclopaedias

 

That face he will not see again
Will always be with him, will never leave
Will mock him in sleep, remind him
In every reflection
Translucent and shimmering
Those marbles appearing to make him

 

Weightless as ever, forever weak
Forever needing a distraction to speak

 

Elephant eyeballs hovering
Over all thought with lips ever puckered
Aimless fishes within
