Banquet Table (Part 1) Lyrics
Welcome my friends to the banquet table
All of my friends please gather round
So I took a look around to see who he invited here tonight
And I noticed she was one of those who sold her body to the night
And I saw the banquet host rise and hold this woman close
And I felt my anger burn how was she invited here tonight?
Notice me here (notice me here) at the banquet table
In my rightful place (in my rightful place)
This is my time (here I am)
And I saw a little man climbing on his chair so he was heard
And I noticed he was one who'd rob you blind for all that you were worth
And I saw the banquet host rise and fill his empty glass
Is there a single shred of justice at this table here tonight?
