The Kings Lesson & Lyrics

Band : Mark Patrick
Titel : The Kings Lesson
Erscheinungsdatum : Juli 20, 2017

I received a request to re-release something from my far past. Released in the early 90’s, a song I wrote in the mid-late 80’s as a result of the turbulence in the world at the time. Yes the world was just as violent as it is today; the Iran-Iraq war, „The Troubles“ in North Irland, Sri Lankan Civil War, the Civil war in Afghanistan… and the list goes on and on. In all these years we haven’t learned a fucking thing!

THE KINGS LESSON

I’ve seen how life goes
I’ve read the news today
Faces bruised and battered

We’re going now to play with our children
Teach them right from wrong
Show them our footsteps
Make them feel they belong
somewhere in this lost and lonely song

And all the kings horses
And all the Kings men
Came home again

Once again
With their children by their sides
With tears and with laughter
These things you must not 
hide from your children
No answers left untouched
They’ll grow with deep roots now

And all the kings horses
And all the Kings men
Came home again
