Espers - Dead King

Take his scarred body,
anoint his heirs,
take a dollar for the crossing from coins in his mane.

Souls, slight of coin,
Slight of name --
Then I'll meet you at the back gate and greet you just the same.

Come to my side
and we'll walk on
to where the frosts of the dead king lay heavy on the vine.

Long it's been said
That the worth
of man is woman, and his lands have retainers. (?)

The music of the Espers seems to be a distillation of much of the music I have ever loved, from early Country Joe and the Fish through Pentangle by way of the Velvet Underground. This, unfortunately, is as close as I've been able to come to a video:
