[Intro]

D                                   C
I am a prince and I live in a ship and I aim my rifle and I shoot from the hip
Em                          Am
And I have a friend I pity quite a bit
     D                                          C
She said, “Grab your gun, let's have some fun, share with me your perigees 
   Em                     Am
I have responsibilities, I cannot run!”
   D                         C
“I do not wish the death of any living thing, 
              Em                           Am
I might be a killer but one day I shall be queen 
    D                             C
and put an end to slaughter, but until then I'm keen 
     Em                                Am
on staking claim to land and sea and everyfin between.”


[Chorus 1]

   D                              C
I played a game with eleven fools who told me not to break the rules
     Em                             Am
But when have angels ever helped me yet?
     D                    C
And magic isn't real and anyway it doesn't matter 
Em                                                        Am
'Cause no matter what I conjure it could not help be me deflect


[Verse 1]
     
      D                     C
The angry death of every hopeful thought 
                    Em                Am
That I might be a lover or a fighter that I’m not 
     D                      C
In someone's spider web or net I could be caught 
              Em           Am
But I'm too bitter, better off alone, guess I forgot
[Bridge 1]
D                               C
So what? Do you want me to say sorry?
Em                            Am
Should I apologize, when you ignore me?
          D                         C
I didn't ask to be right or to be lonely
           Em                  Am
Or to be hatched into an ugly story


[Chorus 2]

         D                            C
I am a prince and I had a pair of princesses in two sharp squares
     Em                                Am
But then I guess I bored them both to death
    D                             C
And now I think my calling is to break apart and fall to pieces
Em                              Am
Better yet invent a brand new method of ascension


[Verse 2]

       D                 C
I'm impressed, you've managed to survive 
                       Em                          Am
But rest assured we'd all be better off dead than alive 
        D                                C
'Cause when they get a hold of us we'll all be batter fried 
           Em                                 Am
And I'm surprised that nobody's considered switching sides


[Chorus 3]

    D                            C
So here I am, respectfully and royally destroying 
      Em                                 Am
Any chance of getting back on your good gills
       D                                C
And I don't want to be hurtful but if yellows the new purple 
             Em                          Am
Well then bleeding's the new breathing, don't you think I will!


[Verse 3]
   
   D                         C
I used to wish the death of every living thing 
   Em                              Am
I might be your killer but you'd never be my queen 
D                            C
So put away your laughter, pack up your hopes and dreams 
Em                                                      Am
I'm done with black back-handing and red pandering, it seems


[Hook]

D                                      C
That I am just pathetic, I won't be overlooked 
                         Em                          Am
I'm past the point of fishing to get back upon your hook 
D                                  C
I've made a manifesto, I've been bested by a crook, but never more! 
Em                                  Am
I'm planning on reclaiming what he took...
[Outro]
    D                            C
So what? do you want me to say sorry?
Em                             Am
Should I apologize, when you ignore me?
   D                                C
I didn't ask to be right or to be lonely
           Em                  Am
Or to be hatched into an ugly story
Em                          Am
To be hatched into an ugly story
 D                                C           Em        Am
Oh my, this pantomime is getting gory

(play the whole pattern once)
D                              C             Em          Am
I am a prince and I live in a ship
D                             C             Em          Am
I am a prince and I live in a ship
