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
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 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
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

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…
