Servants and Kings - Radical Face

Through rolling hills and many miles of blood


We slept in the rainfall and marched through the mud


And you were not like anyone I'd known


You spoke with impunity had nothing to atone


And quiet evenings you told me what you thought

About servants and kings and how everyone is bought


And that no ones hands are bloodier than god's

And I won't be judged for doing as I ought


It's hard to say just when I fell in love


There was no epiphany no light from above


But you'd become my candle in the dark


And all through that hell you were the shield across my heart


When all was fire and the world was out for blood

And the boys still too young to drink were drowned in the flood


I'd hear you laughing as I'd come on out for air

And I'd laugh with you pretend I didn't care


Now twenty years have passed since the last time I saw you


When I kissed you on the mouth you walked away


I knew it'd be too much I knew that it would scare you


But I couldn't find the proper words for what I had to say


But I don't regret a thing
