Koenig
Words and music by Shannon Rose

Out past the old mill and down to the riverbed
Koenig the king felt the sun shine upon his head
Tired, still he sailed
His mission had failed him and everyone
His ship and queen were gone
Nothing to do now he followed the water on a raft that he made
Got carried away

But the old river has no name

Koenig the king’s just an old ghost, a tired old ghost
If he knew he were lost he wouldn’t be lost, wouldn’t be lost

La la la la la

Men rise like kings when they’re trying to dominate
Fictions ring true when they’d rather not compensate for things that they break or
Things they erase

But the old river has no name

Koenig the king’s just an old ghost, a tired old ghost
If he knew he were lost he wouldn’t be lost, wouldn’t be lost

Come what may they will be holding tight
When it’s all gone away they will look for the light

But the old river has no name
And the old king has no shame

Koenig the king’s just an old ghost, a tired old ghost
If he knew he were lost he wouldn’t be lost, wouldn’t be lost
