I was once a lion
A monster in Orion
Alas, the humans came
Now I'm handled with a chain

Hear the children holler
A serpent for a collar
I will get no rest
In this haunted wilderness

And the crowd comes and goes
To what end, no one knows

Critics ride the cannon
The bankers bring the famine
There will always be
A little crumb for you and me

Hear the serpent holler
A child for a dollar
I will get no rest
In this mirrored wilderness

And the crowd comes and goes
To what end no one knows
Like the ships on the wind
Like the dust in the medicine(?)

Call him ?? ??
I know all his secrets
He is such a fool
He drowned his love in a swimming pool

Hear the trainer holler
A serpent for a collar
He hates it when I roar
And when he's drunk he hates it more

And the crowd comes and goes
To what end no one knows
Like the ships on the wind
Like the dust in the medicine(?)
