Come all you daylight dwellers
Come visit our hidden kingdom
Give this subterrestrial lifestyle a chance

I’m the Mole King
Ruling my underground network

Come admire our worm larders
Come meet my artillery of miners
Give this world of deep darkness a chance

I’m the Low-Profile King
Ruling my empire of soil

Come activate your seismic sensors
Come navigate our infinite burrows
Give these diligent dirt diggers a chance

I’m the Seldom-Seen King
Ruling my sunken realm

Come admire our polydactyl paws
Come listen to the accelerated sounds
Give my lonely velvet warriors a chance

Enter this eternal blackout
Learn to follow your snout
