Once was a magical place, over time it was lost
Price increased the cost
Now the fortune of the kingdom
Is locked up in its dungeon vaults

The castle floor lies in traps with coiled wires set back
Decoyed by old cheese
Now the draw bridge has been lifted
As the millions, they drop to their knees

They pay homage to a king
Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff
Icicles drip from his eyes

The cold wind blows as it snows
On those who fight to get in, on heads that are small
Disillusioned as they enter
They're all aware what's behind castle walls, walls

But now it's written in stone
The King has been overthrown
By jesterly fools
And the power of the people shall come to believe they do rule

They pay homage to a king
Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff
Icicles drip from his eyes

Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Cornfields of popcorn have yet to spring open

Have they lost their heads, or are they just all blind mice?
We've heard all their stories one too many times
Hypnotized by fireflies that glow in the dark
Midgets that disguise themselves as tiny little dwarfs

The parade that's electrical, it serves no real purpose
Just takes up a lot of juice just to impress us

They pay homage to a king
Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff
Icicles drip from his eyes
Ooh, they drip from his eyes
Into the night, they drip from his eyes

They're paying homage to a king
A king who's buried, buried in their minds
They drip from his eyes

Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Cornfields of popcorn have yet to spring open

Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom

Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
