Fantasies of the Common Man

Fantasies of the Common Man

The queen is sitting in her silver tower
She radiates like a golden flower
The king is riding in his shining armour
Slays the dragon none shall harm her.

And every day is another battle
And every man's home that's his castle.

The queen is dreaming of pearls and diamonds
Of luxury and sun kissed islands
The king is planning for his future conquests
Of battlefields and jousting contests.

And every day is another battle
And every man's home that's his castle.

Fantasies of the common man
Got to do the best you can
Fantasise, compromise
Got to keep alive resistance
Fantasies of the common man
Got to get yourself a plan
Analyse, rationalise
The nine till five existence.

The queen is bathing in the screaming silence
Welling up is the unseen violence
The king is counting in his throne room
Its watch the clock and he'll be home soon.

And every day is another battle
And every man's home that's his castle.

Fantasies of the common man
Got to do the best you can
Fantasise, compromise
Got to keep alive resistance
Fantasies of the common man
Got to get yourself a plan
Analyse, rationalise
The nine till five existence.

The queen holds court with the prince and princess
They pout and preen, proclaim they're fearless
The king arrives with threats to bludgeon
So they retire to their royal dungeon.

And every day is another battle
And every man's home that's his castle. (Repeat and fade)
