The King Beetle on a Coconut Estate lyrics

by mewithoutYou

the sun rose as the hour grew late
the day held by the ???
raked up the dry leaves that fell dead from the trees
which they burned in a pile by the lake

mmmm mmm mmm

the beetle king summoned his men
from the top of a ??? stone
"calling all volunteers
someone hurry back here
the great mystery ??? once again"

mmmm mmm mmm

a beetle emerged from the crowd
in a fashionable ??? shroud
said, "i'm a professor, you see,
there's no mystery to me
i'll be back soon, successful and proud"
when the beetle professor returned
he crawled on all six
his wings had been burned
he described to the finest detail what he learned
their was neither a light
nor a ???

mmmm mmm mmm

the deeply dissatisfied king
climbed the same stone to announce the same thing
and in his second appeal
saw to sweeten the deal
with a ???
a leiutenant stepped out from the line
as he lasso'd his thorax with twine
thought, "i'm stronger and braver,
i'll earn the king's favor
one day, all the ??? will be mine"
but for all the leiutenant's conceit
he too returned singed
and admitting defeat

i had no choice
please believe but retreat
it was bright as the sun
but with ten times the heat
and it cracked like the thunder
and bloodshot my eyes
though smothered with sticks
it advanced undeterred
and carelessly cast a black cloud to the sky
my lord, like a flock of dark vanishing birds

mmmm mmm mmm

and the beetle king slammed down his fist
your ??? description, no better than his
we sent for the great light
and you bring us this!
we didn't ask what it seems like,
we asked what it is
his majesty's hour
at last had drawn nigh
the elegant queen took her leave from his side
without understanding
without asking why
she gathered their kids
to come say their goodbyes
their father explained "you've been somewhat deceived
you all called me your dad,
but in truth that's not me
i had a go with your mom
and your form was conceived
but your Father's the Truth
within all that you see
and He fills up the ponds
as He empties the clouds
and He holds without hands
and He speaks without sound
provides us with the cow's waste and coconuts to eat
??? one has salt taste
the other one sweet
he ???
like the eagle who hunts from above
??? with goodness and love
He's dressed as a flower
and His fragrance ???
so much, each of you, and your father become
now distribute my scepter, my crown and my throne
the rest of our wealth to the poor and alone"
and without hesitation
without looking back home
the king flew head on into the blazing unkown
as the ??? curled higher and higher
the troops flying loops round the telephone wire
they said, "our beloved's not dead
but his highness instead has been utterly changed into fire"

why not be utterly changed into fire?
