LYRICS:

The role of the king is a lonely one to play,
But cards in the ring have been dealt in the wrong way.
The role of the king is a lonely one to play,
no matter the lives of the people before me,
All that I seek is the path to glory, glory.

Chips in my pocket and blood stains on my hands,
I’m building my legacy right here in the sand.
I’ll stay until the end and watch it go down in flames
Yeah, maybe the path is gory,
Whatever it takes to get my glory, glory.

I was told I had to walk away,
Leave my enemies to rot in their own grave.
But scars don’t heal, I’ve given blood a taste.
I’ll fake the smile they’ve seen before,
They’ll see I am so much more.

So,
The rule of the land, it’s so crucial to obey.
Believe in yourself, or you won’t be appreciated.
Don’t you overthink it, just do what I say.
Lay the politics out before me,
Whatever it takes to get my glory.

You need all the power and the fame.
Cuz that’s the game.
You’ve been kicked into the sand.
I’ve built something better than
What you could ever dream of on your own.

The role of the king is a lonely one to play,
But cards in the ring have been dealt in the wrong way.
The role of the king is a lonely one to play,
no matter the lives of the people before me,
All that I seek is the path to glory.

My legacy,
My glory, ah!

    CG5 is really transcending the definition of “fan song” by making full blown motion-picture level quality pieces —- this rocked my world dude, you’ve come so far and this is incredible. Huge congrats to everyone involved.💚

  3. Hawaiian Kinguin says:

    This was amazing, managing to put a whole arc into a 3 minute song, I even got emotional at the end, the animation style is great as well, smooth, sleek, with all these references packed in. I feel like this song sums up his rise to becoming a king perfectly, and a nice send off to DSMP songs, definitely worth the wait, thanks for this.

  4. Elijah Ducote says:

    You all knocked this one out of the park and more!
    Lyrically, and melodically this could not be any better suited of Quackity’s story!
    Coupled with insanely well crafted visuals and unbridled creativity.

  5. Watermelon Tiger says:

    I’ve always wanted a song just like this but I couldnt put it into words or know exactly what i wanted. once i watched cg5’s twitch stream i knew i found what i was looking for. this song had a big impact on (i think) everyone- i just wanted to thank you cg5 for giving us this amazing music! keep on doing what you love!

  6. Imagineerfan says:

    There has been so much hype in the development of this song, and oh my gosh it is a masterpiece. The lyrics, music, and animation all work together to perfectly tell Quackity’s story perfectly. I don’t know if you’ll notice this but thank you so much for the time everyone took to make this what it is.

    this about to pull 10M less than a week

  8. Christian Heinz says:

    This song is INSANE! I love the mixture of Spanish guitar (because Quackity’s from Mexico) and the Las Vegas vibe you added to the songs. Not only did you include the Quackity story to the song, but you were also able to make another fire beat. Great job, Charlie!

  9. uis says:

    EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS PERFECT! The animation, the lyrics, vocals, and the instrumental! The instrumental is amazing, especially when it’s just pure instrumental during the purpled and quackity fight, it’s amazing. I could feel the passion in this project and it’s awesome. The “Glory, glory” part is so catchy. This was absolutely worth the wait. Amazing job from CG5, Bryan, DICE, and everyone else who worked on this.

  10. Togemite says:

    Literal definition of “worth the wait.” School literally started last week for me and this is the most/only exciting thing I’ve experienced in a quite a while. I enjoy this song so much to the point that I can’t enjoy this song more. Hats off to you, Charlie.
