Illusions For The King (The Jokerr)

[Verse 1:] It was just another show There in the front row sat a girl Young and fair with a stare through her hair Of old fashioned curls But through the spectacle in all of it's grandeur I watched her from the stage She never cracked a smile Just held her that cold warning gaze As if to say... [Chorus 1:] Sing me another song Cinderella's gone And she's not coming back so long Let her go on, she's gone Bring me another day Then send me along my merry way Illusions for the King Don't work on me at all [Verse 2:] When I saw her in that hall Her image burned a hole in my mind I tried so hard to find her But from everyone to whom she was described I was told she had long ago died But when the crowd rose And when the curtains closed She was sitting there alone And oh, I was terrified When she said... [Chorus 2:] Sing me another song Cinderella's gone And she's not coming back so long Let her go on, go on She's gone Bring me another day Then send me along my merry way Illusions for the King Don't work on me at all [Verse 3:] Now here in my cage I can see how we've all bought the lie A promise of solace That only exists in our minds For love is just apathy Disguised as a stranger in need And now the ghost of that woman Is the mother of the anger in me
