Lyrics

Verse 1 There's a man somewhere Down there He’s crooked but he’s handsome Stole glimpse of the queen And its worth all of The king’s ransom And he is waiting Waiting to... Collect

Pre-Chorus Half a mind to try sleeping underground Wishing to recognize his home town Half a mind to try sleeping underground Wishing to recognize his home town

Chorus There's a boy and He is up at dawn Family and friends They are all gone His days are cold And his nights are long And he's begging for the end of the world

Verse 2 There's a whore in a corset Walking up to my doorstep Stops for a moment Then took four steps towards it And she’s waiting Waiting to... Collapse

Pre-Chorus Half a mind to try sleeping underground Wishing to recognize her home town Half a mind to try sleeping underground Wishing to recognize her home town

Chorus

Verse 3 There's a thief by the stream He fixes flying machines Read a book about dreams So he knows what it means To be wanting Wanting to... Forget

Pre-Chorus Half a mind to try sleeping underground Wishing to recognize his home town Half a mind to try sleeping underground Wishing to recognize his home town

Chorus

Outro Don’t you know the penalty for poaching the kings deer? It's still beheading around here. All things belong to me, Including you...
