I'm a king, yes, I'm a head of state.
But I'm the kitchen boy who'll wash your dirty plate.
I had no message and the message was,
We're all Jesus, Buddha, and the Wizard of Oz.

I'm merely a man,
And I bring nothing but love for you.
I'm merely a man,
And I want nothing that you can't do.

And you know it's true.
That with logic and love we'll be lifting humanity higher.
