Tragic Kingdom
No Doubt Lyrics


"Remain seated please
Permanecer sentados por favor"

Once was a magical place
Over time it was lost
Price increased the cost
Now the fortune of the kingdom
Is locked up in its dungeon vaults
The castle floor lies in traps
With coiled wires set back
Decoyed by old cheese, now the drawbridge
Has been lifted as the millions
They drop to their knees

They pay homage to a king
Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff
Icicles drip from his eyes

The cold wind blows as it snows
On those who fight to get in
On heads that are small
Disillusioned (disillusioned) as they enter (as they enter)
They're unaware what's behind castle walls
But now it's written in stone
The king has been overthrown
By jesterly fools
And the power (and the power) of the people (of the people)
Shall come to believe they do rule

They pay homage to a king
Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff
Icicles drip from his eyes
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Cornfields of popcorn
Have yet to spring open

Have they lost their heads
Or are they just all blind mice
We've heard all their stories
One too many times
Hypnotized by fireflies
That glow in the dark
Midgets that disguise themselves
As tiny little dwarves
The parade that's electrical
It serves no real purpose
Just takes up a lot of juice
Just to impress us

They pay homage to a king
Whose dreams are buried in their minds
His tears are frozen stiff
Icicles drip from his eyes

Ooh, they drip from his eyes into an eye
They drip from his eyes

They're paying homage to a king
The king who's buried, buried in their minds
They drip from his eyes
Welcome to the tragic kingdom
Cornfields of popcorn
Have yet to spring open

(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)
(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)
(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)
(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)
(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)
(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)
(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)
(Welcome to the tragic kingdom)

Was thinking of learning bass guitar when I was younger but was hesitant. hearing this album when it came out was what inspired me to learn big time. This album proved to me as a kid how front and center and bad ass the Bass line can be. Some times more prominent than the main guitar. So good!

Listen to Chris Squire on "The Yes Album". He and Bill Bruford comprised one of the best rhythm sections ever.

Christopher Yates
