  2. I.

    O WHAT can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
    Alone and palely loitering?
    The sedge has wither’d from the lake,
    And no birds sing.

    II.

    O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms!
    So haggard and so woe-begone?
    The squirrel’s granary is full,
    And the harvest’s done.

    III.

    I see a lily on thy brow
    With anguish moist and fever dew,
    And on thy cheeks a fading rose
    Fast withereth too.

    IV.

    I met a lady in the meads,
    Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
    Her hair was long, her foot was light,
    And her eyes were wild.

    V.

    I made a garland for her head,
    And bracelets too, and fragrant zone;
    She look’d at me as she did love,
    And made sweet moan.

    VI.

    I set her on my pacing steed,
    And nothing else saw all day long,
    For sidelong would she bend, and sing
    A faery’s song.

    VII.

    She found me roots of relish sweet,
    And honey wild, and manna dew,
    And sure in language strange she said—
    “I love thee true.”

    VIII.

    She took me to her elfin grot,
    And there she wept, and sigh’d fill sore,
    And there I shut her wild wild eyes
    With kisses four.

    IX.

    And there she lulled me asleep,
    And there I dream’d—Ah! woe betide!
    The latest dream I ever dream’d
    On the cold hill’s side.

    X.

    I saw pale kings and princes too,
    Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
    They cried—“La Belle Dame sans Merci
    Hath thee in thrall!”

    XI.

    I saw their starved lips in the gloam,
    With horrid warning gaped wide,
    And I awoke and found me here,
    On the cold hill’s side.

    XII.

    And this is why I sojourn here,
    Alone and palely loitering,
    Though the sedge is wither’d from the lake,
    And no birds sing.

    “According to Andy Hull at a Bad Books concert in Phoenix on October 12, 2012, this song is about Peter the Great (the Russian tsar). Apparently, Peter discovers that his wife Katherine has been cheating on him, so Peter has her lover beheaded. He then has the man’s head placed in a jar to preserve it, and as punishment, Peter forces Katherine to spend some time each day staring at the head in the jar. This song is a love song to Katherine, sung from the points of view of Peter and also Katherine’s lover’s head (in alternating verses). Kinda twisted, but a brilliant song nontheless.” 

    Originally my post, but this description is crucial.
