    Funnily/interestingly enough, you could say “chunks WOULD load” is a nod to the king being in spectator mode (since, in some cases, spectator mode disables the ability to load chunks). Taking this metaphorically, the king is a SPECTATOR to the ruin his kingdom is heading towards and thus powerless to stop it.
    Did spectator mode exist back when the song was made? No. Am I reaching? Of course. Was it fun to write this anyways? Certainly.

    This is definitely a call back to simpler times. 10 years really does change a lot, for me, it meant growing up. I was 7 when that video released. Now, I'm 18 and worried about money, jobs, college. I have depression now. Holy cow, really seize the moment, live every day like it means something.

  • Null

    This just confirms for me what I've thought all along. It was never just a Minecraft song to me. Maybe at first, but even as a child this song hit me a lot harder than many "real" songs at the time. Maybe it was the Minecraft metaphors that made it easier for my kid brain to understand. But it still has a charm and story, and lesson, that's just different. I can't say I watched Captain Sparkles too often throughout my life. But no doubt he's made a huge impact on my life with this song, and the whole Fallen Kingdom series.

    I always wondered if Jordan was the one to write the Fallen Kingdom lyrics, because nobody was credited with it in the music video's description, meanwhile, he was credited with Revenge's lyrics. I'm glad to see it was him, those are good lyrics!
    Also, I think this is the first time I'm hearing Alex(MianitePurgeHighlights)'s voice.

    Things really change. One minute it’s like you are a mighty man, known by all and popular by all. One minute you had everything. One minute everything was perfect. Then the next, as time goes by, it’s like your just another person. Simply a person. You really used to rule the world. You really used to have it all, but now as times change, you look back and compare it to now and you sit back and say, “I used to rule the world..”
