about

"Monarchy" describes a cycle of oppression perpetrated by successive demagogues who each promise to liberate the poor from misery, if only they will help overthrow the current monarch.

lyrics

Soft, it begins again like all
those stories you have heard before..
Once a queen disguised herself
among the poor..

I walk among you to receive
all of the sorrows that you keep.
I would learn the songs your children
believe
and oh my dear..

Let me serve confessor for
your abandoned aspirations.
Let me be the ledger for silent tears
and oh my dear

Will you give to my campaign
to depose your dread oppressor?
Will you dare the king to blame
and appoint me his successor?

Glory and war began her reign
as righteous as the one before
So the king disguised himself
among the poor..

I rise among you to concede
what hopes we pinned upon the queen
lie half-forgotten in the songs we believed
against the king

Let me serve a champion for
your unsatisfied desires
Let us clamor for
a justice inspired
and oh my dears

Will you give to my campaign
to depose your dread oppressor?
Will you dare the queen to blame
and appoint me her successor?

Long live the monarchy!
(The people have spoken)
Long live the monarchy!
(The monarch is chosen)
Long live the monarchy!
(The people have spoken)
Long live the monarchy.

I walk among you to receive
all of the sorrows that you keep.
I would learn the songs your children
believe
and oh my dear..

Let me serve confessor for
your abandoned aspirations.
Let me be the ledger for silent tears
and oh my dear

Will you give to my campaign
to depose your dread oppressor?
Will you dare the king to blame
and appoint me his successor?

Let me serve a champion for
your unsatisfied desires
Let us clamor for
a justice inspired
and oh my dears

Will you give to my campaign
to depose your dread oppressor?
Will you dare the queen to blame
and appoint me her successor?
