In The Court Of The Crimson King

In The Court Of The Crimson King:
An Observation by King Crimson


21st Century Schizoid Man

Cat's foot iron
claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia's
poison door
Twenty first century
schizoid man.

Blood rack barbed wire
Polititians' funeral
pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Death seed blind man's
greed
Poets' starving children bleed
Nothing he's got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man.
