"Hail To The King"
Watch your tongue or have it cut from your
Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid
Children roam the streets now orphans of
Bodies hanging in the streets to adore
Royal faith will carve the path in...

    I think this song is about Satan and The Illuminati. When he says watch your mouth ill have it cut from your head I believe that Its the Illuminati saying that if he talks about what they do then they will kill them

    A tyrant king who rules over his subjects with a iron fist who kills all who oppose him it is not about the bible or the second coming.

    this is a song, in my opinion, that is a sarcastic pledge to the leaders of the world. "These people torture us and are totally disconnected, not concerned with anything but the almighty dollar, but by all means, HAIL TO THE KING!"

    I can't say the meaning of this song . . . you must figure it out for yourself, and a painful discovery it will be

    I think the king is death, and the lyrics show how in the end, death triumphs over everything

    A song about the people yearning to bring back and greet the coming Christian king to rule in the name of God's son Jesus Christ in the near future. In order to save our Western society that has been polluted and corrupted by the ungodly intellectual illuminated illuminaries, working with the old Bolshevik communist, Zionist Nazi slave driven mentality, that has been used on us with the throat cutters now, to create and accomplish their agenda for the one world order rule, who calls themselves the globalists. That are against hailing to the coming of the king, like they have always been, and now who likes for us to be against the Christian ''czar'' Vladimir Putin that are demonizing him like he is the new Hitler to scapegoat for war, and don't want to be surfing themselves to ''Hail To The King'' and serve God.

    This song is about a tyrant king who abused his people and how they are angry with him everything from armour to the sky blackened with arrows describes a Dark ages king who has alust for power it is not Jesus'second coming or the anti Crist or Satan it is a dark ruler like Bloody Mary, king Richard III, or Henry VIII.

    I think its about anything that can completely take over you and your every thought and therfore effect you and everybody and everything that surrounds or includes you and or something or someone or anything that is effected by you weather it be drugs or love,war,jesus violence or being the best at something. if you look at it like that you can put any circumstance weather it be good or bad in there case opiate addiction is the king

    Oh my god not every song is about the damned Rev (not literally... I don't even believe in heaven and hell) but to me it seems to be talking about people of 'higher power' forcing people to keep their heads down and obey, hence the 'watch your tongue or have it cut from your head' and 'they've come to take all your rights'. It seems like its in the kings perspective, now I think about it the words seem to be metaphors for hell and the devil

    I think that its about how the rev was the king of all drummers and how none can match his power as a drummer, he has to grant other drummers the right to be called as good as him. That's my interpretation

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    i think you can make this song mean whatever you want it to mean. But it's probably saying something about dictators taking over countries.

    I think it's about the coming of Jesus in the final judgment when the lamb breaks the seals
