​Soldier, Poet, King

This song is by The Oh Hellos and appears on the album Dear Wormwood (2015).

There will come a soldier
Who carries a mighty sword
He will tear your city down, o lei, o lai, o lord
O lei, o lai, o lei, o lord
He will tear your city down, o lei, o lai, o lord

There will come a poet
Whose weapon is his word
He will slay you with his tongue, o lei, o lai, o lord
O lei, o lai, o lei, o lord
He will slay you with his tongue, o lei, o lai, o lord

There will come a ruler
Whose brow is laid in thorn
Smeared with oil like David's boy, o lei, o lai, o lord
O lei, o lai, o lei, o lord
Smeared with oil like David's boy, o lei, o lai, o lord

O lei, o lai, o lei, o lord
He will tear your city down, o lei, o lai
