lyrics

I've lived so long, don't even wonder why
Waiting in the court, I've served out my time
A string, some porridge, an open fire
Have kept me from the flies

We've waited so long lads, singing out these tunes
Playing with the dogs; flirting with handmaidens
To keep ourselves amused
But the Jester doesn't come; the King looks quite upset
Feel a cold wind calling, swinging someone by the neck

Flowing through the castle halls, the King is off his throne
Called the guard to his side, down the stairs and into another room
Searching for the Jester, looking for the Queen
But the King won't reveal passages, betwixt and between

King sits back upon his throne, beaten broken battered down
The jester's nowhere to be found
The time looks bad for us lads, doesn’t look like we'll be going on
Should we get the truth out now, or let these fools rage on and on

Sneak out there now Anne, while us we wait inside
Tell they of our plight, let them know us by our cries
Will the lovers let us die, for what they've done tonight?
Tarot woman, hanging man, dark cauldron, weaving sister’s hand

Flowing through the castle halls, the King is off his throne
Called the guard to his side, down the stairs and into another room
Searching for the Jester, looking for the Queen
But the King won't reveal passages, betwixt and between

King can't go to his throne, hallway wall has come undone.
Offering mere shell of empty room
Darkly lit by slits, rising to the moon
Fallen lovers cast in thronging hall
Still didn't save us from our doom
