Standing all alone on an island in the clouds Waiting for you, watching, hoping that you'll come around I know some day you will come out of the clouds to bring me down Ten fifteen eleven twenty-seven forty-two A screaming eagle plummeting from heaven's altitude I knew someday you would come down through the clouds to claim the crown I sensed electric fire for some time from up above And when it finally struck I knew exactly what it was I knew someday it would come out of the clouds to strike me down

Proud of our boys for doing their jobs Like cattle, deployed, alone in a mob Mothers were sobbing as anyone would But it don't matter now- they're out of the woods I am not sad or bothered at all It faded- that fad they called rock 'n' roll It rose on its own promoting no good But it don't matter now- we're out of the woods O! There were spies Spiders and flies Bigger in size Than you or I They crept up behind me Wove webs to wind me But they could not bind me They drove us out of our mines And we did all that we could But now we're doing just fine We're floating out of the woods It came back to burn me- nineteen sixty-nine Lightning returning to strike my third eye Blowing my mind with unlikelihood But it don't matter now- I'm out of the woods

The serpent awakes Searing my back Shooting the flames Out of its mouth From north to the south From north to the south From north to the south The wurm's in the lake Drowning me out But I know his name And now he's in doubt The tail or the mouth? The tail or the mouth? The tail or the mouth? A circular snake Eating itself Divided in two A tail and a mouth The tail or the mouth? The tail or the mouth? The tail or the mouth? You got to choose one of the two Choose chew or be chewed
4.
Your breath is the wind Your soul is of fire But I have been shown Your heart is of stone and that is why I'm high and lonesome You scorpion All I desire Warped by your ring Your eye of fire

The Crown 01:01
I knew someday you would come down through the clouds to claim the crown

Down with the viceroy and long live the king A steward's no good when you've had the real thing The hero appeared as a spirit with wings Ushering in the new days of the king
8.
The time is now Do it today This is the storm It's not on its way No time to waste Put on your face No weakness here Achilles' heel We must stay warm Do as I say Where there's a will There is a way Seventy-six Shot through the foot Ripped at the roots By Jupiter's bolt Came as a shock My world was rocked Gods aimed their guns I tried to run
9.
My line was in the water The bait was on the hook I was begging for a bite the seventh time it struck It's really something awful, man, I can't believe my luck It stung my stomach and my chest I think I've had enough When the moon is full I stumble through the fog Chase my tail around in circles like a dog Unaware of those I meet out in the night So beware because I might just take a bite And the light in my eyes is a sign of the times Say goodbye to my mind as higher I climb And I'm not going blind but my sight liquifies With incisors the size of the spiders and flies My time is getting shorter My head is on the block My teeth are getting longer now but who's watching the clock? It's really getting painful, man, it's burning up my guts But if one strike was meant to kill It would have been enough
10.
I dislike the idea of dying Cause I want to love you forever But without any love coming back from your end The idea of living don't make any sense O! what can I do when there's nothing under the sun to get me over you? I'm messing with my inner demons And wrestling madly with reason I don't understand why you're leaving me here Abandoning me after all of these years O! what can I do when there's nothing under the sun to get me over you? As they are laying me down They'll wonder which way I am bound Although all those times I was cooked in my skin I did hand myself my own death in the end O! what can I do when there's nothing under the sun to get me over you?
