King Unfit

Psychiatrist floating downstream
and a mentally ill unfit King
a land of cruelty
and mystery 
no one knows if it was murder or suicide
but the ruler of the land was taken down by a doctor
not a leader of men
not by bombs or politicians
a doctor
a psychiatrist

Do you know
the nightmares that led up to the facts
the story of both sides
and what happened to King unfit
and his psychiatrist led to the water
by the harpies

a state of war
a King found unfit to rule
politics and mental health
all i can do is say
do we not pay attention to history?
do we not pay attention to how to overthrow a dictatorship 
like it has been done before

King unfit
i don't know what suit you are
but without you being cast out of your power
many minds wouldn't be thinking what they are
and your ghost would have been left here suffering
never to find me
and the psychiatrist never would have had the say to speak to you
of what lead up to the political mess of revolution 
before that day

King unfit
the doctors are the queen in the people command
you will never capture them all
and when you do
I'll play another card from another suit
learned from history you did not have planned

King dread has been played
King unfit I now play
do i hold two of a kind or an Ace?
Should we up the stakes?
are you ready to win or lose the race
we can take it slow
i cant wait to see your face
The queen of all hearts
the queen of the land she understands king unfit

but who is king unfit
sending us to war after war
and it never ends?

Can u tell me that 
King unfit?
