Lyrics

King of the Past (Ian Roure) 

History hasn’t gone your way 
Somehow, some fairness has somewhat held sway 
And Kodachrome colors complicate 
When a black and white world is just a tyrant away 

You’ve joined the caravan going back 
In a procession of lies 
One day you hope and pray your flag at last 
Will be so proudly unfurled 
By the King of the Past 
In your black and white world 

History hasn’t gone your way 
And the last you thing you need is some more of the same 
You want a ticket to ‘51 
And a prophet who claims he’ll make that kingdom come 

You’ve joined the caravan going back 
In a procession of lies 
One day you hope and pray your flag at last 
Will be so proudly unfurled 
By the King of the Past 
In your black and white world 

We’re all on the caravan going back 
In a procession of lies 
Now that it’s come to pass your flag at last 
Has been so proudly unfurled 
By the King of the Past 
Here’s your black and white world 
Here’s your black and white world 
Here’s your black and white world (King of the Past) 
Here’s your black and white world (King of the Past) 
Here’s your black and white world
