I am the author
Dream up your pain
Drink as did Bacchus
Rebel just like Cain

Lord of the city
I shall remain
All pandemonium
I shall reign

Sit in my fortress
Up on my hill
Drinking the wine
'Til I've had my fill

Building up high
My castle walls
Oh, to veil
My splendid fall

I present you
I present to you
I present you
This crown of worms

I present you
I present to you
I present you
This crown of worms

Surrounding myself
With misery
Drawn curtains heavy
Of my history

Exquisite I am
Perfect unity
On my left hand
Is false majesty

I feign affection
Refute the true story
Dispute with creation
The lie is my glory

I care for no-one
My gospel is death
For me the lights gone
Only darkness is left

I present you
I present to you
I present you
This crown of worms

I present you
I present to you
I present you
This crown of worms

As black in deed
As cold as stone
A commandment of one
As proud as gold

As neglected in spirit
As time is old
As legion is numbers
As legend is told

I am alone
With the agony of truth
My power of will
My judgment and chain

My end is knowledge
And conscience of guilt
My final confusion
Hidden from me 'til I'm done

Songwriters
Mustaine, Dave / Harris, Sean
