You was already dead.

Seven thousand foot soldiers couldn’t save thee
While the God on the off side enslaved thee
Some kind of Crusade you led
While the ablest of Generals bled
Falling off the horse you said
“If we don’t make it by nightfall, we’ll be dead”
While the ablest of Generals led
You knew, it didn’t matter at all,
Because you was all
Already dead
You was all
Already dead
Already dead, you was already dead

The first to go was the biggest blow
As he felled down on one, to axe himself done
Next it was you, something you’ll rue
As the man with a horse’s mane, also your bane
Flung a spike ball at you, as it went right through
You knew, it didn’t matter at all,
Because you was all
Already dead
You was all
Already dead
Already dead, you was already dead

And what happened since,
You can go ask your prince
Some kind of Crusade you led
While the Generals bled
And the foot soldiers fled
You knew, it didn’t matter at all,
Because you was all
Already dead
You was all
Already dead
Already dead, you was already dead

You ever come back from the dead, Ricky?
