King Of Limbo

He wears a shroud of mystery
Sets the pace and leads you on
Never where you think he'll be
Cheshire smile 'n then he's gone

It's an ancient world that he comes from
But now he wears a suit and tie
Dancing to a distant drum
Still got jungle in his eyes

He's gonna cast a spell on you
Get you to do things you'd never do
All your better angels will disappear
Leaving' you to wonder how you wound up here…with
Truth adrift and time akimbo
Talkin' bout the King of limbo

V2
Any way the wind is blowin'
He'll change direction on a lark
The hardest part is never knowin'
Always fumbling in the dark

Affable and slippery
A shaman on a mission
Tangible as mercury
Or just an apparition

CH
And when he casts his spell on you
You're gonna do things you'd never do
You're just a puppet on his string,
Cause he's in charge of everything
Truth adrift and time akimbo
Talkin' bout the King of limbo


BRIDGE
Just how low
Can one man go?
Who can can say
When no one knows
Jerked around and left for dead
Still it isn't over yet

CH
Don't let him cast his spell on you
Or make you do things you'd bender do
Cause there's no justice, that's the deal
It doesn't matter how you feel
Truth adrift and time akimbo
Talkin' bout the King of limbo

Heart adrift and love akimbo
Talkin' bout the King...
The King of limbo
