Like A California King Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I see you have made yourself a brand new life
Such a cool blue star with a bright new shine
I see you wear your checkered past just like a shining suit of gold
I know you think you look so special

Now I am told you have found yourself a brand new time
Watch the world stand still as the years go by
I know you think you are new and different
But it makes no sense to me

There is nothing new about you
Just another self made man
There is nothing new that I can see
Enjoy it while you can
I know you think you look so special

What makes you think you are so special?
What makes you think you are unique?
I see you smile and I get angry as I watch you go colossal
Like a California King

{All these Californians, coming up here
And changing everything
They're just a bunch of carpetbaggers
And I wish they'd all just go
(Go)}

I hear you gave the world a brand new voice
Such a happy melody with a new wave whine
Yeah, I see you hide behind your own noise
I think I've seen enough

I will find you in the clouded room
I will knock you off your feet
I will burn you just like teenage love
I will eat you just like meat
I will break you into pieces
Hold you up for all the world to see

Yeah, what makes you think you're better than me?
What makes you think you're better?
What makes you think you are complete?
What makes you think you are the only one immune to falling down?

Why can't you see?
I see you fall and I get happy
I will watch you burn like fire
I will watch you burn like a California King

{I will watch you burn like a California King}

California King
I will watch you burn like a California King
I will watch you burn like a California King
I will watch you burn, yes I will watch you burn
Like a California, California King
Yeah, I'll watch you burn like a California King
