Serpents In Camoflage – Liquid Kings

We are three fine kings of oil and glory
In war to fight for ladies
And gentleman alike
Mounted on a stallion playing polo
With clubs in hand we thrust into your life
Your mind
It’s ours you see
It’s the way it’s has to be
With our handouts to the poor
Around ‘eight
Can you feel it?
We are here to take what we can
From the living, from the land
For our pleasures we command so much more
We are guardians of this wasteland we are making
Forsaking and raping until your very end
You are free men of course
You have power and force
You’ll never forget it’s me who rules your life
It’s me who rules your life

Moonlight, desert air
A penny for your thoughts my son
So easily
Wild nights for all to see
A bridge across the river bed
Returning from the sea
We are moving on a desert plane
The children of the wing will feast
On all of those who stay
The preacher he has his eye on you
His words that make the way to heaven
He has forced you on your knees
And the twilight of another world
A door appears before us
And some of you go through

We’re all in the river
To move beyond the sea
To drink a distant nectar
Of humming birds and bees
We’re all in the river
To move beyond the sea
To drink a distant nectar
Of humming birds and bees – say please

The movement from beneath my feet
This world is moving slowly
From the stronger to the weak
The silence is falling over you
There was nothing I could do to help you
And I watched you fade away
When all is said and done
There is no light to guide us
To shine on everyone
The preacher is kneeling over you
And he crosses you for comfort
With the muzzle of a gun – Bang Bang

I lay down for a moment
In this place that has no name
There was something high above me
I could not explain
Slowly it descended
In the brightness of it’s light
And it’s liquid soon covered my flesh
And no matter where I moved to
It hovered there instead
Does it see me?
And it’s easy to get lost
In a dream that has no end
Because you sleep through your life anyway
Yet something inside me was moving
I’m running as fast as I can
Trapped in some smothering film
Yet it’s only some strange fashion
Like a wheel that never turns
But we watch it to see if it will
I lay down for a moment
And the vision disappears
The liquid drips on to the floor
So I guess that maybe I’m sleeping
In an hour or two I will wake
Can you free me
Now!

Can you not feel the heat
The sun is on my back
And isn’t it strange it turned out wet
And if I could find a way to say I won’t be back
Do you remember how we met
How could I begin to tell you
All the faces I have seen
Some were good to me
Some were good for me
But I’ve a feeling I’ve been placed here before
Beyond the reach of men
Some were hurting me
Oh they would not let me be

And could you please hold the door
The key’s under the mat
Do you think you could push me through
And if I go safely through
Put the key right back
And lock it up tight and walk away
Ah but you can’t come in

We’re all in the river
To move beyond the sea
To drink a distant nectar
Of humming birds and bees
We’re all in the river
To move beyond the sea
To drink a distant nectar
Of humming birds and bees
Won’t you say please
