Back in the day  
You fought for glory  
Oh Knight of Wands  
These days it's a different story  
A fallout from yourself  
Disconnected from your values  
Being messed up without being messed up  
You took away the substance  
And left - what exactly?  

Your mind wants to kill you  
Your heart beats you down  
Your body, a bloated corpse  
Where the spirit clings  
To things that once made you happy  
Fleeting, flittering, flown  
Away with you!  
Find purpose elsewhere  
But first stock up  
The journey is long  
And who knows if you'll ever come back  

You've stolen from the King of Cups  
You thought you could get away with it  
No one would notice - yeah right!  
Now you're trailed be seven soldiers
Where two swords  
Divide the empath  
Drawn & Quartered  
Nickel & Dimed  
Cut short by short cuts  
Not so much on the up & up  
Are you?  
 
His majesty will spare you  
But you shall never return  
To the kingdom  
The price you pay  
When crossing land by sea  
Get back on your high horse  
And ride off into the sunset  
Your cause wasted on these royals  
Anyway  
 
Much time has passed  
Since the incident  
Many a year spent in the desert  
Amongst the Pyramids  
Those tombs of gods  
Who died only to be reborn  
Just outside the gates  
Where a pair of Queens  
Wait on the Knight of Wands  
To bring them tales  
From foreign lands  
 
Text book narcissists  
They see themselves  
In the objects they hold  
Sitting upon stone thrones  
Immobile imbeciles  
He could not be bothered  
By such languid ladies  
He'd rather charge a fiery path  
Leaving them far behind  
Perhaps he should learn  
From their tolerance
But not today  
Maybe tomorrow  
Who knows
