"The Righteous Shall Destroy the Precious" as written by and Alex Trevor James....
When I have my day
I come down from the hills
with light on my face
and death at my heels
And my voice, it bends
but my voice does not break

When I have my day
I enter white buildings
with chairs lined up straight
for all of God's children
They wonder but ask not
"Are your fingers long enough to play?"

When I have my day
my brothers learn courtly
with daggers in hand
hatch plans to disrow me
But my brothers are precious
and the chaft must be burned away

When I have my day
the song that I sing
carries back to the source
and back through them again
Did you know brothers,
your voice, your king
once was your slave?
Did you know brothers,
your voice, your king
once was your slave?
Did you know brothers,
your voice, your king
once was your slave?
