A king
a queen
a slave
why does it matter?

We're all human
we all hurt
and cry
and bleed

Oooh. ooh.

No one is blessed
with being a king
no one is blessed
with being a slave

The only thing
we're blessed
with is
being alive

Because you still
could die at any moment
while wearing a
crown on your head

Because you could find
happiness at any moment
being a slave
doing what you're born to do

'Cause there might
not exist a God
but there
sure is fate

'Cause the happiness you go
through as being a king is only there
to remind you there's
pain too

And the sadness you go through
as being a slave is only reminding you
how strong you can be;
that happiness exists too

Because we're all human
and everything ends
the power the happiness;
the suffering and the pain

'Cause we're all human and even
if I were to be a queen that wouldn't mean
I can't suffer too;
that wouldn't mean I'm any better than you
