Kingdom Come

Forever
is gonna take me to the stars.
Forever
is gonna wake me when the car’s
arrived and started br[]aking,
every drive the court of a king.
The lever
with which I’ll terraform the world,
no not this one you’d wanna share’ll
be, from where I’m standing,
Forever
It’s where I’m from.
I’M THE KING OF KINGDOM
COME
COME
COME
COME
COME
My distinc-
tion is in all the pomp and the pageantry
that an undiscovered country
has for them as won’t de-
lay
So it had to be today
It had to be today.

Forever
is gonna grab you when you fall
“The Devil,
You say, “there’s no invisible”,
no hand on which I’m countin
throwing my friend off the mountain
The level
you need to be deplatformed to,
the not-quite-working class for you
‘cos, from the way it’s trending
Forever
is no place for scum:
I’LL RETURN TO KINGDOM
COME
COME
COME
COME
COME
While you burn
I’m syncing
up with the quintillions coming
not eight bil with which I’m slumming
who come to nothing anyway.
So it had to be today

AFTER ALL
ALL
ALL
ALL
AFTER ALL
ALL
ALL
ALL.

WHATEVER
Is gonna keep us from the fires
Forever
is gonna sweep up all the buyer’s
remorse after the bubble,
and the poor so deplorable
Indiffer-
ence is what there’s forever of
with hate contemptible as love
from both their way of ending
There never
has been, in sum
ANYWHERE BUT KINGDOM COME
COME
COME
COME
COME
I can bear being and
fending off the uninvited
better than to serve outside it
where the night’d
never stay
so it had to be today
it had to be today.
AFTER ALL …
It had to be today.
