As he travels on the
Beast of burden,
Moving up along the mountainside,
As he gazes looking down the
Valley,
No regrets but his pride.

As he journeys across
Mountain passes
Insignificance sweeps over him.
His reflection of the beauty
Round him.
Feeling empty inside.

He is running from his
Wildest thoughts.
He is running from his everything.
He is looking now to
Find something,
Hoping he could be saved.

He's searching for the answer now.
It's something that he's managed to
Avoid up 'til now.
Real conviction, that he craves.
He needs to find the answer
Sooner than later.

Pushed himself to the limits.
He had to strive for all the harder
Things in life,
But what the cost of giving now?
His life and his time are the only things
That he has.

Life is is not a rehearsal.
All he has is the one chance
To get it right.
Leaving really is the only
Way to know.

Maybe one day they'll forgive him
What he's done,
But now the pain of lying too
Early in the grave.

Destiny, no good to hide away.
Penance now will be his only way.
Understand, no good to run away.
Penance now will be his saving
Grace.

He tries to make his peace
With God.
All is forgivable but it's left
A little late.
Trying something that he's not.
Is it possible to change such a lot?

He's taken someone's life away.
There's not a day goes by.
He regrets what he's done.
He should have found another way
But the good book says:
An eye for an eye.

In reflecting on decisions
That were made.
On the judgments that will
Haunt him 'til his grave.
No one has the right to
Take another life
But in his mind he had no choice.
So be it.

Destiny, no good to hide away.
Penance now will be his only way.
Understand, no good to run away.
Penance now will be his saving
Grace.

Destiny, no good to hide away.
Penance now will be his only way.
Understand, no good to run away.
Penance now will be his saving
Grace.

Far, far away, the man
Who would be king.
Far, far away, the man
Who would be king.
So far away, the man
Who would be king.
So far away, the man
Who would be king.
Far, far away, the man
Who would be king.
