Once upon a slime I thought you royalty
I would never have questioned your loyalty
Don't act so surprised, saw through your disguise
But with friends like you prefer my enemies, yeah, hell

Up until recently never had a clue
Reel away, I must admit I pity you

I'm through with your kind
'Cause you've wasted my time
Please do not release them
Lord knows what they do, yeah

I can't believe how cruel life is
Emotional blackmail
Makes me sick, oh so sick

Who is to blame for constant shame on you?
These words I use, please don't confuse with cool
This misfortune, not lost but won deserve
Choosing is hard, careful which God you serve

Traitors many, surrounding me cowards
Conspiracy so clear to see, flowers
We were brothers 'til discovered, deceit
Tried with treason that's the reason you're beat

I can't believe how cruel life is
Emotional blackmail
Makes me sick, oh so sick

All hail and farewell to Britain
All hail and farewell to Thee
All hail and farewell to England
All hail and farewell to me, to me

All hail and farewell to Britain
All hail and farewell to Thee
All hail and farewell to England
All hail and farewell to me, to me

All hail and farewell to Britain
All hail and farewell to Thee
All hail and farewell to England
All hail and farewell to me
