"King Lear, King Lear"

lyrics by MC Lars
music by SMP

VERSE 1:

King Lear, King Lear think we’ve got a problem here
Gonna give away your kingdom to the daughter most dear
appearances deceiving - this tempest in your mind
takes away the feeling from your senses feeling fine
Cordelia, Regan, Goneril - Who will do you dirty?
filial ingratitude - you’re vision’s looking blurry
Guess you’ll stumble when you see, searching for the meaning
when you’re homeless on the street - cause your girls are steady scheming

PRE-CHORUS:

Demons to the left of you
Serpents to your right
that’s you sleep with one eye open
on these cold Britania nights

Demons to the left
Serpents to the right
that’s we sleep with one eye open
on these cold Britania nights

CHORUS:

You can’t see what’s going on (going on)
you can’t see what’s going on (going on)
locked behind the castle doors your daughters do you wrong (KING LEAR)

VERSE 2:

This cold night, will turn us all to fools
will make us go insane, King Lear you know it’s true
Gloucester gets blinded, then he tries to end it all
Edgar says he made it, he somehow survived the fall
that’s when Lear appears with Cordelia they find
that she truly loved her father but to truth Lear is blind
wish he never banished her captured in the battle,
(so then) every one is killed - and they’re slaughtered just like cattle (oh!)

PRE-CHORUS:

Demons to the left of you
Seprents to your right
that’s you sleep with one eye open
on these cold Britania nights

Demons to the left
Seprents to the right
that’s we sleep with one eye open
on these cold Britania nights

CHORUS:

You can’t see what’s going on (going on)
you can’t see what’s going on (going on)
locked behind the castle doors your daughters do you wrong (KING LEAR)

BRIDGE:

How sharper than a serpent's tooth / serpent's tooth
It is to have a thankless child! Thankless child!

How sharper than a serpent's tooth / serpent's tooth
It is to have a thankless child! Thankless child!
