lyrics

A king or a thief

(Music by V.Rechin/ S.Demmin; Words: V.Rechin; all rights reserved)

Elvis Presley was a talented fool
Humphrey Bogart just pretended to be cool
Johnny Cash never wanted to wear black
Cobain died on a heart attack
John Lennon has never been to New York
Boris Karloff was afraid of the dark
Marilyn Monroe just a Disney cartoon
and Michael Jackson the first man on the moon

Alfred Hitchcock fell in love with a bird
Charlie and Miles have never spoken a word
God lost his soul in a game with James Brown
Lemmy was the only angel in town
Frank Sinatra only drank apple juice
Kennedy thought he's got nothing to lose
Janis Joplin crashed her Mercedes Benz
the lie and the truth are friends

do you know
what you know?
come on leave the world far behind
don't lie to me tonight
and let me know
let me know
who's the king and who is the thief
I do you believe

Lady Madonna was a guy called Lucille
and Little Richard was the fool on the hill
Sergeant Pepper's lonely hearts were a fake
and Bob Marley did it all in one take
Charlie Chaplin walked the wild side of life
Lou Reed killed Mack, the knife
Buddy Holly never sat in a plane
and Amy Whinehouse sang her prayer in vain

Ziggy Stardust sold the world in a day
Pablo Picasso dreamed in blue, pink and grey
John Wayne never shot with a gun
and Quentin Tarantino is his son

do you know
what you know?
come on leave the world far behind
don't lie to me tonight
just let me know
let me know
who's the king and who is the thief
I do you believe

revolution is a videogame
the late night news are going insane
the world wide web doesn't exist
I shot it down who's next on the list?
the stock market is me weird online
democracy's dead and freedom's a lie
television's always tellin' the truth
the truth is a lie is the truth is a lie is the truth is a lie is the truth...

off we go
off we go
come on leave the world far behind
don't lie to me tonight
and let me know
let me know
who's the king and who is the thief
I do believe
in you
