​Wicked Man

This song is by Ben Harper and appears on the album There Will Be a Light (2004) and on the album Live at the Apollo (2005).

Now, children, come running to the truth
'Cause you got to peel the skin to get the fruit
But while one's living high, another's grieving
But what's sweet by morning's bitter by the evening
Oh, what's sweet by morning's bitter by the evening

So the wicked
Oh, the wicked
Oh, the wicked man shall fall
Oh, the wicked
Oh oh, the wicked
Mmm, the wicked man shall fall

Now, when the moon chase away the sun
Oh, and force my day to run
I do not fear the darkest night
For I know upon the other side is light
Oh, on the other side is light

Oh now, the wicked
Oh, the wicked
Oh, the wicked man shall fall
Oh Lord, the wicked
Oh Lord, the wicked
Mmm, the wicked man shall fall

Every man is a common man
And every common man has his plan
But while the hungry man seeks any food in sight
Oh, there's a greedy man who seeks only appetite
Oh, the greedy man seeks only appetite

Now, the wicked
Oh, the wicked
Oh, the wicked man shall fall
Oh, the wicked
Oh oh, the wicked
Mmm, the wicked man shall fall
Oh, the wicked man shall fall
Oh, the wicked
The wicked
Oh, the wicked man shall fall
Fall fall fall fall fall
The wicked man shall fall
