Pete Doherty – Palace Of Bone lyrics
Though we've been a long time together now,
Time together on a snaky road
There ain't no time together,
Like time to-together on a snaky road

Winding on through the hills forever,
Winding on that snaky road
Winding on forever,
Winding on that snaky road

What's that they're telling you,
That's your future?
I'm telling you,
They're gonna pick your pocket too

Though we've been a long time together,
Time together on a snaky road
There ain't no time together,
Like time spent together on a snaky road

Winding all through the hills together,
Winding on that snaky road
Winding on forever,
Winding on that snaky road

What's that they're selling you
Of lotions, potions, selling you?
Well, they're gonna pick your pocket or two

In a clearing
I'm going to build me a palace of bone
Wide open walls and an ebony throne
Now all the broken children from every broken home
They'd come and live in a palace of bone

I'm going to build me a palace of bone
Wide open walls and an ebony throne
Where they're aint no black and white and no innocent soul
Can't come and dance in the palace of bone

There ain't no time together, like time together on a snaky road

    Palace of bone is a poetic way of saying crack den - he refers to crack as bone in a few songs and he if offering every broken child and soul to come live in his crack den. In another chorus he writes "no innocent soul Can't come and dance in the palace of bone." To dance means to take drugs, he used the term in black boys lane - "are you dancing today?" And the pick a pocket or two lines come from drug addicts stealing to repair themselves keep themselves sane. That's what I took from it anyway?
