Track Name: Fisher King
What has become of my kingdom?
I see these ashes all around, oh
And when did my throne turn into broken bone?
When will these trees begin to grow? (x2)

So leave the key when you leave
Give this place a chance to grieve
And in the morning everything will look the same
In the morning there will be no blame

And bury me in hallowed ground
And my restless spirit won't make a sound
And you'll be dancing as the neon bleeds
And I'll be lying under the rushes and weeds

So look upon my works, you mighty, and despair
When I ask your countenance, could you even dare

What has become of my kingdom?
I see these ashes on the ground, oh
And when did my throne turn into broken bone?
When will these trees begin to grow? (x2)
When will these trees begin to...

My clothes are torn, wasted with mould
I'm twenty-eight, but aching and old

Your softly-spoken words are powerless to mend
This shattered kingdom, torn and on its knees
This fragile empire, blown away in the breeze

So look upon my works, you mighty, and despair
Would you even notice? Would you even care?

What has become of my kingdom?
I see these ashes all around, oh
And when did my throne turn into broken bone?
When will these trees begin to grow? (x2)
When will these trees begin to...
