lyrics

and hands resist him and castles keep him in
a troubled kingdom for a troubled countenance

"why do I feel so low, where did my best years go?
"why is ever a part of me shirking in the shadow?
"girl on a unicorn my kingdom for a cure
"I don't know more about right and wrong than the chair I threw my jacket on"

and hands resist him and castles keep him in
a voice in answer gathers on the wind

"did you spring from an oyster purse, sole denizen of the earth?
"were you trying to make it better without thinking you could make things worse?
"boy on a big man's throne, you never loved what you couldn't own
"was she just something that you found?
"is there no alley that you won't walk down?"

his is a heart of snow, his parachute was a parasol
and his world is a wasteland where nothing is beautiful
so listener what have you learned, make you of this tale you heard?
did you come like a brilliant bird or did you leave without saying a word?

and hands resist him and castles keep him in
son of no-one he wants for nothing.
