This song is about Ludwig II, King of Bavaria from 1864-1886
Ludwig had a "thing" for castles..


The following is a true story:

All I wanted was a home like
big like,
stone, with defense like a turnpike, out of sight
image of my face on the curtain wall,
beats bumpin' at the concert hall, fuck it, and a shopping mall
all the finest foods in the area,
gold plated letters on the portcullis say Bavaria
salt water mote with dolphins and a club of boats
Wilhelm gave a loan but he said he wants a promissory
he said, "no more castle shit,
this is for the debt that you owe to the architect,
you are exceeding past your opulence purchasing all those monuments,
spend the cheddar wisely or your crew might plan an 'accident'"

fuck that, turned it down
I'm a king, not a commoner
I should have the things that I want without a monitor
My ministers, declare that I'm insane, they must be jocular
attempting deposition while I purchase Spanish Alcazars!
