Lyrics
Yesterday’s King
©2008 Ken Bewick
Snow, bones, the desert rings
Into King’s Lounge drag your things
Circle ‘round the neon haze
And I’ll be remembered as yesterday’s king

Snow, bones, drag your wings
The rain won’t show you anything
The rails and wheels have cut your ties
And I’ll be remembered as yesterday’s king

Chief, have you heard of the great metal farms
They roll east from Los Angeles, west from New York
And tumbleweed Tucson is sleepy no more
Sun-colored mountains and valleys be warned

Snow, bones, we’re in between
In the King’s Lounge drink and sing
Feathered headdress and mountain maze
I’ll be remembered as yesterday’s King

And I wept for the raven behind the cross-wires
Whose sun-glinting eyes so fiercely would sing
Bridges are broken by tokens in trainloads
And I’ll be remembered as yesterday’s king
Ken: guitars, wah-bass, fender bass, vocals
Josh: drumset, pie glass, percussion, vocals
Michael: organ, wah-piano
