A mighty King, a treasonous peasant.

The King holds all peace and all joy and all fullness of life.

what does the peasant need?

he needs the King.


But this poor man smears His name into the ground,

with boots that he long forgot were a gift from him,

"He is a myth-

He is oppressive-

He is out to steal my life-"

he needs the King.


So what does this peasant need

who has sinned against this King?

he needs a heart to feel and eyes to see

and his debt to be released

he needs the King


What do I need?

my stone heart to feel, dead eyes to see,

my debt to be released,

I have the King.

I need the King.

I don't need anything.
