After Merlin and I did the Werrew mini-arc in Project Future (see icon), and probably because I was reading the Ice and Fire books at the time, I found myself singing a silly ditty on the way home from work one day.

It wouldn't go away, and gradually evolved into this, a song based around the overthrow of a tyrant. It may or may not be about Werrew's adventures, I'm not wholly sure.

Instruments used:

Roland MVS-1, JV1010

Korg Triton Ex, Hammond XM-1 w/Rotosphere

Creamware Minimax ASB

TornadoTron

Epiphone Thunderbird Gothic

Other stuff: Watkins Copicat Mk4, Small Clone chorus

Synthesizers sequenced in Cakewalk and Rosegarden

Vocals and bass recorded to TASCAM TSR-8, then transferred to an MSR-24 for mixdown using an ATS-500 synchronizer, on SM911 tape.

Mixed to a Studer A807 on SM900 tape.

I got bored and added some production tricks like running some of the vocals through the Leslie simulator, and true flip-the-tape-over reverse reverb.

Heads bow in line

Peaceful sun shine

Heads bow in tune

They'll be mine soon

The Kingdom of Exemplar is a terrible place

Its customs are archaic and its laws a disgrace

The one thing he can't handle if it's said to his face

Is that the King is quickly running out of time and space

And I'm the Man who Should be King

Think of the golden age I'll bring

And I shall turn things upside down

When I have seized the Kingdom's crown

Heads fall in time

High Treason crime

Heads fall in tune

He'll be mine soon

The Kingdom of Exemplar is a terrible place

Its customs are archaic and its laws a disgrace

The one thing he can'd handle if it's said to his face

Is that the King is quickly running out of time and space

And I'm the Man who Should be King

Another golden age I'll bring

And I shall make this kingdom sound

When I have claimed the Golden Round

When I am king I'm going to add protections to the law

So no-one may be killed without a trial anymore

'Cause that's not right

And I'm the Man who Should be King

And hear the bells of judgement ring

And I shall make this kingdom sound

When I have claimed the Golden Round

Skulls fall in time

High Treason crime

Skulls fall in tune

The Throne...

The Throne will be mine soon...

I'm the Man who Should be King

Think of the golden age I'll bring

And I shall make this kingdom sound

When I have claimed the Golden Round

The Kingdom of Exemplar was a terrible place

Its customs were archaic and its laws a disgrace

The thing he couldn't handle when I showed him my face

Was that I'd come to kill the King and now I've taken his place.
