Song Meaning
Verse 1
"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth."
Verse 2
"No reason to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late."
Verse 3
All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.
Verse 4
Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.
