Denim Armor

Michael Channing

i want a damsel
to un-distress
i want to face the foaming
hungry demon horde
i often dream
in times of stress
that all my problems
can be solved with a sword

punch the clock
ascend the throne
i’m a king when i’m alone

i’m a fighter for the cause
keeper of the laws
i have magic i have might
i am right
i am prisoner to my flaws
my life on constant pause
i have dreams i have debt
i am regret

i see the dragon
as it descends
i smell the smoke and taste
the ashes in the air
i’m losing hope
and all my friends
too busy deep
in battle now to care

throw the dice
accept your role
pay for everything you stole

i’m a fighter for the cause
keeper of the laws
i have magic i have might
i am right
i am prisoner to my flaws
my life on constant pause
i have dreams i have debt
i am regret

punch the clock
ascend the throne
i’m a king i am alone
