The Court Of The Crimson King

Lyrics

The rusted chains of prison moons
Are shattered by the sun.
I walk a road, horizons change
The tournament's begun.

There was a radio show on Sundays called the King Bisquet Flour hour, they featured King Crimson often
More crimson please fro Discipline and beat and larks tongues in Aspic
Always loved the line , The gardener plants an evergreen,wh i l s t tampeling on a flower..

they don't make music like they used to:'(
sounds wicked! like some early euro symphonic death metal, except more upbeat but with similar melodic vocal and instrumental harmonies. also an emphasis on minor chords. this song gives me goose bumps!
This song is the best!!!
Love it!

Absolutely fantastic. One of the best songs by one of the greatest bands.
How Incredible.
How is "prominent drums" not an attribute for this song?

It's a song like this that makes me want to learn to play the drums.
Controller, just wanted to say Pandora is putting together some great sets this morning! Thank you!

Btw, the use of this song in the movie Children Of Men was just perfect. Pete Sinfield's lyrics were like an English prophecy in that context.
