King, where are your people now ?
Chained and pacified.
Tried in vain to show them how.
And for that you died.

You had a dream of a promised land.
People of all nations walking hand in hand
But they're not ready to accept
That dream situation, yet.

King, where are your people now ?
Chained and pacified.
Tried invain to show them how.
And for that you died.King, where are your people now ?
Chained and pacified.
Tried in vain to show them how.
And for that you died.

You had a dream of a promised land.
People of all nations walking hand in hand
But they're not ready to accept
That dream situation, yet.

King, where are your people now ?
Chained and pacified.
Tried invain to show them how.
And for that you died.
