When the night never seems to bring morning
to your house to you street or to your town
When all lost things cannot be found
don’t let it bring you down
Working people keep on working
Poor man stays poor
One hand on the bottle 
A thousand thoughts of his life before.
I say “O my heart beats like a drum for you”

We move through the days with our heads down
We bite our tongues to keep from speaking out
Marching one behind the other
It’s the truth we begin to doubt
Black sheep stands in the corner
Will no one stand up and shout
for the boy being pushed in the school yard
for the beggar we know nothing about
I say “O my heart beats like a drum for you”

There’s a war going on out there
It breaks you down
It breaks apart
It drives you mad
Gonna take what we can while we can
It’s so sad when thirty million people
are forced from all they’ve ever known
Pushed to the outside of normal
without food without clothes or a home
I say “O my heart beats like a drum for you”


from When You Were King, released July 15, 2013
