Kingslayer (Lyrics): Bring Me The Horizon (Ft Baby Metal)

Oli Sykes has talked about the idea behind the song; “it is an ode to someone who’s ‘willing to do what’s right even if it’s illegal

Oli addresses all the people who seem lost in this world without a choice and without a voice. The song takes a political tone, especially vocalizing against the Trump administration. And within this administration, people have lost their voice and made to feel feeble. Oli asks the question from the people if they want to end this?

Trump administration has been under heavy scrutiny for careless handling of the COVID-19 pandemic which has lead to over 230,000 deaths in the country, and the highest in the world as of now. Amongst this issue, there are also many other social issues such as racial discrimination, poverty, and economic issues that are blamed on the administration.

Pre-chorus

In these lyrics, a very aggressive Oli Sykes calls people to action. He screams at the people to wake up and undo the mistake they did with this administration. The album released just days before the 2020 Presidential Election in the United States of America on November 3, 2020.

Oli Sykes reminds everybody that as long as you try to protect the corrupt or incompetent administrators, you are just being a puppet of their invisible strings. These invisible strings could come in the form of patriotism, which always makes decision making tough.

Chorus

The chorus of the song is performed by Su-Metal of BABYMETAL band. The lyrics call out for a fictional ‘kingslayer’ to rescue everybody from these uncertain and dark times. The phrase ‘kingslayer’ is a reference to someone or something that brings in a change in a positive manner. He is the ‘hero’ that takes down the ‘bad guy’ in the story. However, when it comes to politics and human society in the 21st Century, all humans are kingslayers, but only together!

KINGSLAYER

Hi, are you looking for the other side?
Feel like nothing ever seems quite right?
Are you circling the drain pipe, getting off on pain like
You’re corrupted?


I need to know where your loyalties lie
Tell me, are you gonna bark or bite?
Do you really want to twist the knife
In the belly of the monster?

Get the fuck up, wake the fuck up
Wipe the system, and back the fuck up
You’re a puppet when they cut your strings off
Don’t come crawling back

Kingslayer
Destroying castles in the sky

Kingslayer
Forevermore the apple of my eye
I’d sacrifice my life to find you
Angel of the flame

Kingslayer

Come and collect us from the night

暗い この見えない世界
まだ消えない未来
ただ手に入れたい another world
System failure
Life is encrypted, genome modified
Like a virus in a lullaby
Artificial ’til the day you die, silly program
You’re corrupted

Get the fuck up, wake the fuck up
Wipe the system, and back the fuck up
You’re a puppet when they cut your strings off
Don’t come crawling back, you’re on your own

さあ 時の
扉を開けて
行こうよ

Kingslayer
Destroying castles in the sky

Kingslayer
I’ll fight for you until I dieKingslayer
Destroying castles in the sky

Kingslayer
Forevermore the apple of my eye
I’d sacrifice it all to guide you
Never have to battle alone

Kingslayer
Come and collect us from the nightThis is your wake up call
We’re going down the rabbit hole

Are you ready?
I can’t feel you

Is this what you want?
This is what you’ll fucking get

You motherfucking shit
