When the King FallsBrendan Bonsack

 Listen to audio demo

When the king falls
We'll weep the tears that ought to be wept
We'll sleep the sleeps that should have been slept
We'll kick the leaves that would have been swept

When the king falls
We'll dance the steps we were taught to forget,
Re-sing the tunes we were taught to neglect,
Find all the things that should have been kept

Blindness will fade,
When the king falls
The hunger will subside again,
When the king falls
I will learn to love again,
When the king falls
We will be alive again,
When the king falls

When the king falls
I'll feel the things that should have been felt,
I'll yell the yells that should have been yelled,
I'll fix the things that couldn't be helped.

When the king falls
I'll ask the things that were never asked
He'll be smaller then - without his mask -
He'll be all alone like the rest of us.

I will see clear again,
When the king falls
The hunger disappear again,
When the king falls
We will learn to love again,
When the king falls
I will be alive again,
When the king falls

When the king falls
We'll take the hands that couldn't be held
We'll break the bars and rattle the bells
Re-fill the jars with beautiful smells

When the king falls
I'll make the calls that should have been made
I'll light all the lights and lift all the shades
I'll be the one who should have been saved

I will be here again,
When the king falls
The hunger disappear again,
When the king falls
I will learn to love again,
When the king falls
We will be alive again,
When the king falls
