Just like a bird that sings up the sun
In a dawn so very dark
Such is my faith for you
Such is my faith
And all the world's darkness can't swallow up
A single spark
Such is my love for you
Such is my love

There is a kingdom
There is a king
And he lives without
And he lives within

The starry heavens above me
The moral law within
So the world appears
So the world appears
This day so sweet
It will never come again
So the world appears
Through this mist of tears

There is a kingdom
There is a king
And he lives without
And he lives within

    General Comment It's about faith, security, and perception.

    General CommentThere is so much same as in Lou Reed's Perfect Day. And not only the sound, the mood is quite similiar in many ways. Lyrics "This day so sweet, it will never come again". (Still I don't mean this is about heroin...)
    I'd like to think that the narrator's love is so strong that in the end it is very sad.

    General CommentThe starry heavens above me
    The moral law within

    This is taken from Kant's 'Critique of Practical Reason'.

    Lyric CorrectionMight be my mistake, or a different version of the song, but at the very end is it not "There is a kingdom There is a king, there is a king, and he is everything"?
