lyrics

You're walking around like a zombie
You're standing around like a tree
You're living like a synthetic human
Vicariously

You take my word into your mouth
Like the choicest fruit
But you don't taste the sweetness
Nor yet the bitter truth

You walk around like a king
Lord of all you perceive
But what you've got's worth nothing
When you don't settle your debt with me

You climb the highest mountain
You ford the deepest sea
You put a lasso around the stars
Draw 'em close wondrously

But the gulf between us is
Unimaginable
There's not a corner of the earth
You don't defile with ya mind

You walk around like a king
Lord of all you perceive
But what you've got's worth nothing
When you don't settle your debt with me

You wear your pride like a chain
Proclaiming you are free
But ya nothin' but a pris'ner
Until ya settle your debt with me

I own the cattle on a thousand hills
The wealth in every mine
I give it up to whom I will
My sheep my shepherd divine

I already know all your thoughts
I only pay heed to mine
I wandered throughout all the earth
For those who'll humbly abide

You walk around like a king
Lord of all you perceive
But what you've got's worth nothing
When you don't settle your debt with me

You wear your pride like a chain
Proclaiming you are free
But ya nothin' but a pris'ner
Until ya settle your debt with me

The cursed die like dogs
Beneath an orphaned tree
Is it any wonder they don't ever
Settle their debt with me?

You wander aimlessly
But the river will still reach the sea
And there will be a reckoning child
When you settle your debt with me
