In The Land Of The Blind


(Lyrics & music by Rick Springfield)

The priest wears a black-eye patch and fake Prada perfume
On his walking cane is the Holy Roman ring
He wants to blindfold you all alone in his bedroom
In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king

Hosanna closes her eyes at St. Peter's urging
She tapes them shut so she can't see anything
She don't know it yet but she's no longer virgin
Here in the land of the blind the one eyed snake is king

Cyclopse in the White House understands it
Keeps everyone snow-blind from the Great West Wing
He knows your rules don't apply here in the snake pit
It's the land of the blind and the one eyed-man is king

Every night you pray or it is wishin'?
Cause you're in no position to ask for anything
I'm guided by a warning light from heaven
Inspired by the violent Arab Spring
I nearly died once in a wrecked Porcshe 911
But in the land of the dead, the dying man is king

You're looking for someone to lead you through this
I'm standing here, let's do this
Throw my hat into the ring

He sentenced me to eternity in an excile
Then drew the battle lines with David's sling
Gave every sightless clown a nucleur missile
In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king

Oh, meet me at your Momma's by the Parkway
And I'll free your soul from every Apron string
In the execution hood you wore All Saints' Day
We'll join the land of the blind where the one eyed man is king
