King Of Kings (Parody of Police: King Of Pain)

Author: Parody
Theme: The Messiah
There's a drop of blood falling down from his hand
That's my King up there
Shreds of flesh hanging off where men lashed his back
That's my King up there
There's a crown of thorns twisted around his head
That's my King up there
Any minute now I know that he'll be dead
That's my King up there

We stand here and watch
Beneath the blackened sky
All of us below crying, asking why
How could this be happening?
(It's your) It was his destiny to be the King of Kings

There's a black sky above my head today
That's my King up there
The world will never be the same
That's my King up there
There's an earthquake shaking the city walls
That's my King up there
There are dead people coming up from their graves
That's my King up there

King of Kings; King of kings
You'll always be King Of Kings

Sinners spitting in His face sinner's spit runs down His face They spit in his face
sinner's spit drips in his eye (crying "why")
soldier's spear thrust in his side
powerless we watch him bleed
It was His destiny to be the King Of Kings

They stripped him naked a scarlet robe (That's my King up there)
put a reed for a scepter in his hand (That's my King up there)
They knelt down before him, mocking praise (That's my King up there)
It's your destiny to be the King of Kings

they stripped him again and put on his tattered clothes
they put vinegar and gall to is mouth

they said he saved others but he can't save
he's shouting why have you forsaken me
rocks are breaking apart

maybe he'll return
for it's his destiny to be the King Of Kings


BRIDGE:
There's an earthquake shaking Jerusalem
There's an eclipse blocking out the sun
there's an angel? ripping the temple veil
Men are shouting surely he was Yahweh's Son
There are dead men rising up from their graves
