lyrics

the insurrection of a queen
at the hands of her
country men
all for a crown she could not renounce

and the fields replete
with wheat that her
majesty
neglected to plow and reap

she says that you're free
to leave any time
you need
just hang up your hat at the door
just hang up your hat at the door

the billboard has been
painted once more
for us to keep track of the score

the placard is posted again
for everyone's eyes to see

the routine marquee
is hoisted above
placed just outside of reach

the concierge
calls your name
at the end of your extended holiday

you exit the scene
and keep what you meant to leave
a briefcase of royal
loyalties

the green currency
piled in a heap
on your desk
is all that is left of her regime

she said you were free
to leave any time
you need
at the border of New York you'll sleep
at the border of New York you'll sleep
