The Killers Bling (Confession Of A King) Lyrics

Last updated: 01/06/2010 10:00:00 AM



When I offer you survival,
You say it's hard enough to live,
It's not so bad, it's not so bad
How do you know that you're right?

I awoke on the roadside,
In the land of the free ride,
And I can't pull it any longer,
The sun is beating down my neck

So I ran with the devil
Left a trail of excuses,
Like a stone on the water,
The elements decide my fate,
Watch it go..."bling".

When I offer you survival,
You say it's hard enough to live,
Don't tell me that it's over,
Stand up
Poor and tired,
But more than this

How do you know that you're right?
If you're not nervous anymore,
It's not so bad, it's not so bad

I feel my vision slipping in and out of focus,
But I'm pushing on for that horizon,
I'm pushing on,
Now I've got the blowing wind against my face

So you sling rocks at the rip tide,
Am I wrong or am I right?
I hit the bottom with a "huh!"
?? Quite strange,
I get my glory in the desert rain,
Watch it go..."bling".

When I offer you survival,
You say it's hard enough to live,
And I'll tell you when it's over,
Shut up poor and tired,
But more than this

How do you know that you're right?
If you're not nervous anymore,
It's not so bad, it's not so bad...

Higher and higher,
We're gonna take it,
Down to the wire,
We're gonna make it,
Out of the fire,
Higher and higher. [x2]

Higher and higher,
We're gonna take it,
Down to the wire,
We're gonna make it out,
Whoa-oh-oh Higher and higher...

It ain't hard to hold,
When it shines like gold,
You'll remember me.

It's gone in a bling. | Reviewer: Qzackueso | 10/2/07

Amber has got to be blonde. that's the only thing that could explain her review. That or maybe she was dropped on her head as a child.....repeatedly.



Bling (Confessions of a King) | Reviewer: Josh | 8/2/07

This is the right lyrics and song, the only people who are handicapped are you people who don't own the CD and haven't heard the song... Brilliant work from The Killers once more, one of the best on Sam's Town!



About this song.. | Reviewer: xojuliexo | 6/13/07

those are the right lyrics.well maybe not all but yeahh. and it is the right song..



Shines Like Gold <3 | Reviewer: TD | 4/29/07

I LOVE this song. One of the many highlights of Sam's Town, in my opinion. The 'higher and higher' part is so inspiring and I love the lyrics. <3 The Killers on excellent form once again.



Amazing | Reviewer: sian | 3/10/07

Another great song from the talented killers :)... total greatness



Great song! | Reviewer: Josefine | 12/12/06

Oh god, i love this song! But this lyrics is wrong. But otherwise, i just love the lyrics, beat, music, Brandon Flowers voice... everything in this song! It might be even better than the first single on "Sam's Town"...



uhh...what? | Reviewer: Amber | 10/28/06

Umm...i hate to be the one to point this out..but that is NOT the right song! Bling(Confessions of a king) by the killers, is soo not gangster..its the quite opposite really..so, someone might want to change that. You would know if you had the cd...whoever wrote those lyrics, either is a complete mental handicap...or...is confused.
