Hallelujah, the king is dead. He said
And now he'll dream some magic queen might try and save his life
Came from the heart of the man
He played Jeckyll and Hyde till the day he died
To lead a simple life
This is the year of the knife
Feel the fire go cold
Love will turn to stone
Came from the heart of man
Now I ain't gonna sleep tonight
To lead a simple life
This is the year of the knife
