21st Century Schizoid Man Lyrics - King Crimson

Review The Song (2)



Cats foot iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoias poison door.
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Blood rack barbed wire
Polititians funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Death seed blind mans greed
Poets starving children bleed
Nothing hes got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man.

King Crimson | Reviewer: Shawn | 12/4/10

Let's start with the album cover! The first thing one sees on the rack, is this amazing cover of what we'll find out in the very fist song on side 1, may be the 21st Century Schizoid Man...
Great song! The imagary it conjurs (even without the cover) is that of intense madness and helplessness. What else is there to say about this song, other than brilliant?



Innocents RAPED WITH NAPALM FIRE | Reviewer: Alex | 6/2/07

The fitting opener to King's Prog Rock gem, 'IN The Court Of The Crimson king' is a dizzing fever dream, full of rage, horror and bombast.
In a disintegrating narration that sounds like a radio transmission from the planet Pluto, the lunacies of man are held up for our inspection (Politicians FUNERAL PYRE!.....Innocents RAPED WITH NAPLAM FIRE!!!!') practically daring the listener to disagree that the human race is a lost cause.
In comparing the contrasting madness of man, '21st century Schizoid ' sounds like a computer caught in a self destructive loop, skipping ad nauseum like a fractured Discman until it runs itself into the ground with furious frustration....and is happy to do so.
