Now is the time to reach for the sky
Gather the wind and hear the voice to fly
To know why they sing about heroes and kings
Who were brave and not afraid to die

Look and you'll see that a new day will bring
The will to go on and fight through endless suffering
For all who believe, wait a crown, a ring
The power of the man who would be king
The power of the man who would be king

Into the fight of hopes and dreams
The master of the wind knows nothings what it seems
The melting of the soul, the wish of those who scheme
The taking of the will by destroyers of the dream

They live to spread the fear of the wrong of right of self
They want us all to live like books upon a shelf
But we know we have the power to fight and make a stand
Strike when we are challenged all across the land to be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king

Time to face the world, let brothers never fight
Forever forge ahead and keep the dream in sight
For those who never try, they are sure to fail
The heart's a righteous wind that comes to fill the sail

For the glory of the king we fight to stay alive
By the power of the will, the spirit to survive to be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king

All of the dreams held deep inside, have a meaning to the soul
Freedom to bring a thought to the wing is waiting to unfold
For the crown and the ring
Power of the men who would be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king

For the glory of the king, we fight to stay alive
By the power of the will, the spirit to survive
Across the gates of heaven, beyond the gates of hell
We fought to stay together
We have won and lived to tell who would be king

Fight for the crown, fight for the ring
We're fighting the world, we fight for the king
To be king
...
