“King of Fools”

Ferdinand, a human-devil walking among men
Filled up with the greedy lust to own up all the land
He cut their bellies open thinking they had swallowed jewels
When he watched the blood flow onto the naked ground
Do you think he knew?
He was the king of fools

I bet it hurt

I might know how he felt

For I saw the Madonna in a little southern town
She could move like fire yet she wore and earthly gown
When I looked into her eyes I knew I was lost
I had wasted all I tasted
And there I sat:
Fat, dumb, bloated
The king of fools

You bet it hurt

Now I watch the fighting over the womb of the earth
Spilling blood for proverbs that they neither side have learned
And I see a bunch of children fighting over toys
How long must they die and die and die
To satisfy the king of fools?
