King for a Day…Fool for a Lifetime

No jokes, no gags, no pregnancy scares or fake news articles today.  In honor of April Fools Day, I wanted to reference a favorite music album from my past. Faith No More’s “King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime” was a big part of my life at one point.  The album itself flows from one song to the next like a short story being told.  The title song of the album was played on many crazy nights in my youth.  I used to think the album was about sex, alcohol, drugs, and rock & roll.  Now as I read the lyrics, it makes me wonder if perhaps they are an expression fearing religion or politics.

King For A Day.

The lyrics, in case you needed to read them:

It is not a good day, if you are not looking good.

This is the best party that I’ve ever been to.

Today I asked for a god to pour some wine in my eyes.

Today I asked for someone to shake some salt on my life.


Everything’s spinning.

(We’re on the ground)

Never cheer before you know who’s winning.

(Don’t make a sound)

Sniff the glass and let it roll around on you tongue.

Let me introduce you to someone before the party is done.

Someone to look to in need or in want or in war.

If you give him everything, he may give you even more.

This is the best party I’ve ever been to.

Don’t let me die with that silly look in my eyes…
