Oh, the kings have all been summoned
To their rightful, valiant steeds,
While jesters juggle victory and defeat.

And the queens have all been gathered
To discuss the party plans,
While the devil's got the world between his hands.

As for us, we are but sailors
In a sea of muddy justice,
With mystery, dangers and treasures hidden
Deep within.

You can hear the prisoners whispering
To the dark blue skies above
Is there space between or are they
Really one?

It's a play of tragic laughter,
And it's one that never ends.
So come come dance and cry,
Scream and smile
Again.

The past and present hollers
With their lack of certainty,
And scared and without preparation
Are borne to our feet.

So be reckless and kind and angry;
Be whatever it is you choose.
Let your heart give you meaning
And your eyes give you the truth.

The kings of earthly kingdoms
Take seat on their rightful thrones,
And the victories and failures
Inscribe their names onto stones.

While I take delight in my senses
And the things behind the sun,
And all I have left in my memory and what is to come.
