"The Man Who Would Be King" as written by and Maurice Jarre....
Bless me father I must go away
To save us from the one's who don't believe
Confess me father I have sin but maybe
Angels really sing
Fot the man who would be king

We laugh at your religion
You people of the sand
We have no superstition
You can read it in our hands

Forgive me father for the change we bring
But it's all for the man who would be king

Don't leave a body standing
Not the holy not the small
Deliver us from evil
If it's yours we want it all

Lately father I've been wondering
Is the devil just the man who would be king

How can right be ever wrong
We are glory we are stronger than you

We never got an answer
But it's just too late to ask
The bloody flag was waving
And our hearts just ran too fast

Curse me father for the chains we bring
And don't believe the man who would be king

We never got an answer
Cause the question slipped my mind
I've been so busy killing
That I haven't found the right time

    General CommentI just watched the final episode of Joan of Arcadia which was unfortunately cancelled on their season 2.

    ...where Joan proudly said, "I have god on my side".

    its a pity there are less and less people like Joan in this world.

    and God worked his mysterious charms with people like this Joan character...

    "you believed in something, now it is just a lie" - another one from Dio's lyrics.

    but how can it be a lie when you truly believe it?

    this is what Dio wanted to express....believ in yourself, let God do the rest.

    We are a God in our own choices we have.
