Pay The King

from by Gregory Hoskins



You cried when the river flowed
Through the forest, not the field
You cried when the fog lifted
And you didn't like what was revealed
You cried when the God you found
You just as easily lost
You cried when love came a callin'
But you didn't like what it cost.

You know we're gonna suffer
It's just kind of our thing
If you want your supper
You know they're gonna make you sing

Pay the King!

Remember when you came to down a well
And it was deep, and it was damp, and it was dark as hell
And how you vowed you'd
Never stumble like that again
So explain yourself
While we wait for help
And the calvary of Saints it takes
To save you again,
To save you again.
