Once was a magical place
Over time it was lost Price increased the cost
Now the fortune of the kingdom Is locked up in its dungeon vaults
The castle floor lies in traps With coiled wires set back Decoyed by old cheese, now the drawbridge Has been lifted as the millions They drop to their knees

They pay homage to a king Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff Icicles drip from his eyes

The cold wind blows as it snows On those who fight to get in
On heads that are small Disillusioned (disillusioned) as they enter (as they enter)
They're unaware what's behind castle walls But now it's written in stone The king has been overthrown By jesterly fools
And the power (and the power) of the people (of the people) Shall come to believe they do rule

They pay homage to a king Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff Icicles drip from his eyes Welcome to the tragic kingdom Cornfields of popcorn Have yet to spring open

Have they lost their heads
Or are they all blind mice
We've heard all their stories
One too many times Hypnotized by fireflies That glow in the dark Midgets that disguise themselves
As tiny little dwarfs
The parade that's electrical It serves no real purpose Just takes up a lot of juice Just to impress us

They pay homage to a king Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff Icicles drip from his eyes

Oh they drip from his eyes into an eye
They drip from his eyes

They pay homage to a king
The king who's buried, buried in their minds
They drip from his eyes Welcome to the tragic kingdom Cornfields of popcorn Have yet to spring open
