The Royal We Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We are ready for the siege,
we are armed up to the teeth
Be careful how you live and breathe.
release what's brewing underneath.

How many times do you wanna die?
How many ways do you wanna die?
To feel safe again look over your shoulder.
Very carefully, look over your shoulder.
We can laugh about it now,
we hope everything works out.
Be careful how you lick your wounds.
Believe the change is coming soon.
How many times do you wanna die?
How many ways do you wanna die?
To feel safe again look over your shoulder.
Very carefully, look over your shoulder.

You used to do a little, but a little won't fly.
Right before you hit your prime,
that's when we fell in love, but not the first time.
Can I please you still?
Renaming your father's will?
Or does it make you ill?
Let us bruise their knees.
We will aim straight for the feed.
You will be relieved...
So relieved, so relieved, turn on desire.
Feel the sparks of our friendly fire.
Misery inspires.
Your throat has been cut several times before.
Never noticed the size of the flow,
it can't be ignored.
To feel safe again look over your shoulder.
Carefully, look over your shoulder.
You said you believed it, but believing won't fly.
Right before you hit your prime,
that's when we fell in love, but not the first time.
And when it's all over, and you open your eyes,
to see the room turned on its side,
you'll be lying by a note on the floor signed:
The Royal We (x8)
Love, The Royal We
