Demetrius Constancy

"Heavy Is The Crown" is track eight and is the title track of the Hungry Lights studio album "Heavy Is The Crown."

StoryEdit

In this chapter, Prill is travelling deep into the hideout where he is eventually confronted by Demetrius' creations, the dredgework. Prill tries to fight back, but he is ultimately overwhelmed and captured. He is thrown into a prism-like prison where he further is forced to stand in awareness of his constant string of prideless failures.

LyricsEdit

To your eyes, I might seem half alive

But to me, fiction swirled and wrote my story

-Possibly told allegory

In hindsight, I should have stepped light

But it's too late

Deception had no meaning— the mask was torn

I charged, for I'm no coward!

But I suppose I failed

I tried to take this hour!

But I suppose I failed


There's only so much amends can change before boiling over

And all that I'd gained meant nothing to me

For I was left field—wanting to rid me of her haunting

And nothing real could stop me

But the faster I'd run, the tighter the fangs of the crest took hold


Wide-eyed and turned around

A stone pound in the chest—denied and downed

But I still wore my crown

When all odds are stacked against me and all courage split,

I’ll stand my ground with a prideful prowess

-Heavy is the crown


I thought that I was bleeding virtue

Bakarum, bakarum

But all I ever did was hurt you

Bakarum, bakarum

And as she plays her heart before me?

-Put to sleep by her song

I promised never to desert you…

Bakarum, bakarum!

Still lying to myself

Come join my treasured collection of tales

Beneath the onus upon my height,

Was there a sliver of the man I used to be?


Wide-eyed and turned around

A stone pound in the chest—denied and downed

But I still wore my crown

When all odds are stacked against me and all courage split,

I’ll stand my ground with a prideful prowess

-Heavy is the crown


Heavy, the sucker’s crown
