Closet Chronicles


Closet Chronicles - Kansas

Once carried through the current


And been swept away


The king is in the closet


He's hiding from today


And though he owns all fortunes


This is where he'll stay


And his world is filled with darkness


Turning grey


Gazing out the window


Of the 42nd floor


He is separate from all others

No one knocks upon his door


And it might as well be raining


Cuz the sunlight hurts his eyes


And his ears will never hear the children's cries


Once proud and full of passion

He fought the cause of man


Many people loved his courage


Many followed his command

He changed the old into the new

And the course of things to come

And then one day they noticed

He was gone


At first it didn't matter


Nobody seemed to care


They all became too busy


To find him anywhere


So no one knew not even him

The problems he would find

On the day he journeyed deep into his mind


I close my eyes I go far away


Away from the battlefield


In my dreams well here I will enjoy it


Where innocence plays with all the laughing children


The kind who are crying right now


A taste of freedom from the pain

Of everything here i see


Life is sweet but I took it all for granted


And now i don't know if i can ever tell you


Just what we permit we allow


Allow me to forget the life

I've made my own


I've held this nation in my hand and yet it's not my home


Allow me just one answer and one reason why


Why this refugee of the family of man must die

Tell me why


Daydreams filled his nighttimes

And night dreams filled his days

Confusion and uncertainty

A puzzled mind of haze

You thought he was so powerful

And set upon his ways

Well he left us all to travel through his maze


I heard the king was dying


I heard the king was dead


And with him died the chronicles


That no one ever read


The closet's fully empty now

Its occupied by none

I'll draw the drapes now destiny is done
