Marc Almond – Lord Of Misrule Lyrics

[verse 1]

Please come on in and sit you down
And partake of the feast
I count you all the friends I have
The ones i like the least

I’ll shelter you from darkness
As it clouds over the earth
For the world is in a Turmoil
And life has lost its worth
Black shall be your christmas
And sad tidings to you all
I’ll put my gift under the tree
Wait for the ash to fall

I’ll give you guns and bombs
And all my military plans
I’ll give you my machines
And a list of my demands

[Chorus]
The lord of Misrule
Lord of the feast of fools
Not mischievous but cruel
The lord of Misrule

I’ll bring you to your knees
Before festivities begin
I’ll might be a lord
But please don’t let me in

[verse 2]
I’ll be the last one laughing
At the ending of the world
I’ll point my finger at you
Say you got what you deserve

Take pleasure in your misery
I’ll revel in your shame
A little festive schadenfreude
Wicked party game
So take your chance to steal
All that you covet every day
Betray your friends and break their hearts
Come on and make a play
They’d only do the same to you
So don’t regret a thing
Bring your deceits to the table
And let the feast begin

[Chorus]
The lord of Misrule
Lord of the feast of fools
Not mischievous but cruel
The lord of Misrule

I’ll bring you to your knees
Before festivities begin
I’ll might be a lord
But please don’t let me in

The lord of Misrule
Lord of the feast of fools
Not mischievous but cruel
The lord of Misrule

I’ll bring you to your knees
Before festivities begin
I’ll might be a lord
But please don’t let me in

[verse 3]

So face the sun until
The shadow falls behind you
’cause i’m the lord and i
Will always find you

So face the sun until
The shadow falls behind you
’cause i’m the lord and i
Will always find you
