Higher.
I'm a king, yes, I'm a head of state.
I had no message and the message was,

And I bring nothing but love for you.
And I want nothing that you can't do.
And you know it's true.
Higher.
I'm all religious figures rolled into one,
Don't promise rainbows with some golden pot,

And I bring nothing but love for you.
And I want nothing that you can't do.
And you know it's true.
To raise consciousness up and for lifting humanity higher.

We should chase superstition and fear from our hearts,
Kick it up...higher.
I'm merely a man,
I'm merely a man,

That with logic and love we'll have power enough,
