Parliament of Rooks lyrics

Fold my clothes neatly
Set the table slowly
Sweep the floor gently
Clock is ticking softly

They are here in the morning
They're in the evening
Wondering when it's time
THE CHOIR OF MARAUDERS
Highest beckoning order
No point in trying to hide

It's just a parliament of rooks
Sitting on the fence, waiting for the world
IT'S JUST A PARLIAMENT OF ROOKS
I'm not ready to move from this world to the next one

Ready to move from this world to the next one
Summon my soul to the end of the setting sun
A parliament of rooks will move you on

Looking at your body
Free from any burden
Don't know where I'm going
Certainly not to heaven

They are here in the morning
They're in the evening
Wondering when it's time
THE CHOIR OF MARAUDERS
Highest beckoning order
No point in trying to hide

It's just a parliament of rooks
Sitting on the fence, waiting for the world
IT'S JUST A PARLIAMENT OF ROOKS
I'm not ready to move from this world to the next one

Ready to move from this world to the next one
Summon my soul to the end of the setting sun
A parliament of rooks will move you on

Here they come
Here they come
Here they come
Here they come

Here they come
Here they come
Here they come
Here they come

Here they come
Here they come
Here they come
Here they come

Here they come
Here they come
Here they come
Here they come

Here they come
Here they come
