That shimmered in the sun
You'd catch a glimpse of what I'd done
And all the butchered lambs
I just would've done it slower
When we meet you will see
When we meet then you'll know

There was nothin' left to do
I heard tell of a place
Where men like me were needed
Deep below the dunes I roved
Beside the acacias freshly in bloom

With no place to lay my head
Was loud enough to wake the dead
But all I could do was get back on the road
So I came upon a shanty town
Where carved into a crude wood sign
For a dollar you could buy a girl
But you couldn't find one decent man
Whiskey was for supper

I will destroy everything of beauty
I'll be the axe that clears the forest
I spent those days huntin' hard and fast
And the sound of the rain against the roof
And my legs were tired and my feet were cold

Every king on his lonely throne
Every king on his lonely throne
