Lyrics

The lights are out, the shades are down
He's got his scepter and his crown

He's waking up, and all alone, 
He's sinking in the cushions of his throne
 
But all the gold in Macedon
Couldn't turn his head

    He never saw the downfall coming
    And he probably never cared

	The king was overthrown
	But he didn't even know it

He once was strong, he once was loved
He lifted everyone above

But his arms got tired, from the heavy load
And he was breaking under all the weight below

He sat down to take a breath
But never got back up
 
    And everything was fine without him
    So he just let it go

	The king was overthrown
	But he didn't even know it

He never even knew that he was done
He never even saw the setting sun fall down

He's living in the corners of his mind
The only thing alive was there behind his crown

No one had the heart to tell him that his time was through

A gamer named RhinoCRUNCH uses it at the end credits of his DayZ gameplay videos. Maybe there?
