A Words song inspired by the book The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner, coming from Crown/Random House Spring 2016.
Dave Connis - Everything
He was the serpent king. His subjects, they prayed for him.
I am the serpent prince, yet their venom flows cold and fresh.
Copperhead shapes on my seams, but no one wants to pray for me
I used to carry a tune, I’d rather carry that than a throne
She is a global queen. Jet fuel runs through her veins
Freedom is her best friend, Her’s is a story without an end.
He was a dragon knight, he towered above the dark
He lived where he reigned. He had no subjects, just a dream
I am not a king. No, I will never be.
Like all these stories, to each their own.
As I will be.
