Remain seated please

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 just 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

Ooh, they drip from his eyes into the night
(Tragic kingdom)
They drip from his eyes
(Tragic kingdom)

They pay homage to a king
King who's buried, buried in their minds
(Tragic kingdom)
They drip from his eyes
(Tragic kingdom)

Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Cornfields of popcorn have yet to spring open

Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
