The Anointed One

This song is by Hearts of Oak and appears on the album Hearts of Oak (2003) by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists.

The anointed one, father's favorite son
Now we see, long before the race, you'd already won
Oh beatified, with the softest eyes
These days I can't escape your face, do you remember mine?

Oh, it haunts me
Oh, what a fool I must have been

We saw red, not green, when we were nineteen
Now something's different, something happened somewhere there between
By the river bend, did I misapprehend
Your sincerity or is it you have changed, friend?

Oh, it haunts me
Oh, how could I not have seen what you'd become?

But you fooled everyone
Lace curtains in our slum
You were the anointed one
Alright!

Watching you grow with the pride of a friend
Kissing off school, there were rules to be bent
Knelt by your side through our crises of faith
Mine was on time but for you it was already too late, too late

In the capitol
With your freezer full
Do you represent your district
Or your daddy's will?

Oh, it haunts me
Oh, how could I not have seen what you'd become?

But you fooled everyone
Lace curtains in our slum
You were the anointed one
What have you become?

But you fooled everyone
Lace curtains in our slum
You were the anointed one
