"Tea" as written by and Kim Bendix Petersen....
On the following Friday as I turned out
The light
Grandma' came and knocked at My
"Wake up King, wake up My dear
I am gonna show You about the house
Of Amon"

It is time for tea, it is time again

"Even Your mother is present
We made her sleep in My rocking
At first I felt really scared but there
Was no reason to
As I saw the knife sneaking out from
Grandmother's dress
Then it cut a tiny wound in My
Mother's little hand

It is time for tea, it is time again

Blood was running into the tea pot,
Then I heard "Them" laugh
"A bit of this in a cup of tea, is what it
Takes to set "Them" free
You will hear "Them" telling stories
From far beyond this earth"
What I saw and what I heard made me
Want to stay and learn

I really hope this dream will never
End, it's hard to describe the kind of
Feeling that went on in my mind
A paradise

Hearing "Their" stories and feeling
"Their" warmth
We laughed with tears in our eyes
From the first cup of tea, to the last
Drop of blood
Nothing seemed to matter at all
My Mother? She didn't exist to me,
Oh I felt so heavenly

It is time for tea, it is time again

    General Commentthe thing i think that makes this song stand out is how king carries the "oh" in the line "it is time for tea." that alone kept me hooked to this song. the lyrics are really something else, as well.

    General Commentit's about the grandmother bloodletting on the mother and then mixing it with the tea to release "THEM" and it's some sort of a dream feeling they get from drinking it or whatever they're doing with it that makes them wish it would never end
