There we were the three of us, the Thief the King and I
And finally we were forced to see we were equals in the night
Looking down between the trees, at the town we knew we had to leave
For what it's worth we will walk the Earth till we find the things we seek
And the king said...

I believe I'm a non-believer now
I was a leader but I had to leave them all
No one will ever know, the things you hide inside so let them go
Oh my god, oh my god, yes oh my god

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends
I will never pretend, that I believe in anything
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's saying I've sinned
I will never repent, unless there's evidence, unless there's evidence

They will not protect you (we will fall)
They will not defend you
You'll be left behind, you'll be left behind

We will not forget this (we will know)
Someday they'll regret this
And I'll be by your side, I'll be by your side

And I never gave a damn about the story's end, or even how it all began
And the one word that I seek is one that I can tell myself
And it's a long and winding road
But if you reap the seeds you sow you'll see you're really not alone

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends
I will never pretend, that I believe in anything
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's saying I've sinned
I will never repent, unless there's evidence, unless there's evidence

There we were the three of us, the Priest the Tramp and I
Years ago we had left to roam but reunited on that night
No one had to speak a word, for we all knew what the other learned
And everything that we ever did was a way to pass the time
And the Priest said...

I believe I'm a true believer now
I was a sinner but I came to see the light
The bum and me did not agree but I must confess our jealousy
Oh my god, oh my god, yes oh my god

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends
I will never pretend, that I believe in anything
I will never bow down to another man even when everyone's saying I've sinned
I will never repent, unless there's evidence

I will never defend the men who make amends with any enemy's friends
I will never pretend

    My InterpretationI think the song is about how life changes people, the first verse depicts people near the beginning of the journey of life. The middle verse and choruses are the journey itself, while the last verse describes the same people as in the first, yet after their individual experience in life changed them.
