The Definitive Connection


Mistaken identity, long lost soul
Locked in this Dutch coffee shop
Hid deep in Amsterdam 1980

Red rice disguises another
Unauthorised breakfast item
Bequeathing the crown of horns
To the newborn king of the jewels

Then it’s thank you, cut and run
From their war on consciousness

Guarded by dragons, the Crown of Horns is the only thing that can stop the Locust and end the war. But there is a problem.
