lyrics

a campfire tale
in a cloudless land east of the sea
a boneless blowing wind moves a war chief
the camel king betrays his brother
the quiet royal sheep
saying deep beneath the violences toward the lamb
is one who surely brings this fury upon the land
it was not me he lied to the people
it was the lamb he cried to the people
and with stoic reciprocity
one rose against our king’s hypocrisy
with a cry like a vicious wind upon the land
he said i am hated therefore i am
and he led a gang of soldiers out into the field
when the brothers met where abel lie
and the moon brought in the rising tide
both of the brothers knew their first father was on their side
it was not me he lied to the people
it was the lamb he cried to the people
and with stoic reciprocity
we rise against our king’s hypocrisy
we will rise with the people
we will rise with the people
he will fall with the water
he will fall with the water
