Abney Park

This song is by Abney Park and appears on the album Abney Park (1998) and on the album Cemetary Number 1 (2001).

Darkness, the streets of London he searched for souls
Alone he'd never achieve his lofty goals
Peasants and beggars he found to aid his plans
Train them and give them the strength to share his lands

Welcome to the Park
Step inside my home
It's crowded and it's dark
Yet here I stand alone

An island, lost and alone, he forged for them
Away from the city where they did fend
Beauty he gave to the place: green trees, white sand
The souls in creation had held no hand

Welcome to the Park
Step inside my home
It's crowded and it's dark
Yet here I stand alone

Naked he stood as the people did wage their war
This island was the treasure that they fought for
Love and honor was fought with no valor
The dead were lying slain at every door

Welcome to the Park
Step inside my home
It's crowded and it's dark
Yet here I stand alone

An island of my own
Like old Prospero built
For my life I atone
And I'm armed to the hilt

Darkness, the streets of London he searched for souls
Alone he'd never achieve his lofty goals
Peasants and beggars he found to aid his plans
Train them & give them the strength to share his lands

Welcome to the Park
Step inside my home
It's crowded and it's dark
Yet here I stand alone

An island of my own
Like old Prospero built
For my life I atone
And I'm armed to the hilt

WELCOME TO THE PARK!
