A childhood game becomes an adult nightmare.

You blew a hole last night underneath the moon
Scattering the blight a thousand miles around
You gave us all a choice, a prophet or a friend
And now our children’s voices call out

Brother come and rest a while
Your heart is dark and heavy
And your sword is so sharp
But your eyes are dull and hard
Love abandoned you
And your thoughts are full and troubled
And now you’ve lost your child

But you are the king of the mountain
And all of your wild dreams are true
You are the king of the mountain
But there’s nobody left to rule
There's nobody left but you

A human being at the gate, hands outstretched,eyes aflame
Standing tall and straight and calling out your name
We pulled our love around us, our daughters and our sons
Walked out in the gunfire with our hands out
