Penny For Your Thoughts

I summarized the query that befits you
A kingdom you will never inherit
You bring a thought to mine ears
And I chose to offer a penny for it

A kingdom you will never inherit
A breakdown of the finest wears
And I chose to offer a penny for it
Pleasure for each moment you produce

A breakdown of the finest wears
You cannot bring a false word to me
Pleasure for each moment you produce
A stone faced person you have become

You cannot bring a false word to me
You bring a thought to mine ears
A stone faced person you have become
I summarized the query that befits you
