With so many things taking over so much of our lives today, e,g, technology, Industry, Politics, etc, I believe we are loosing touch with many of the important, and irreplaceable things in life. Kingdom expresses this point.

Lyrics

KINGDOM

Verse One
Ancient tree on yonder hill
Countless years and standing still
What have you seen, what do you know
You've watched them all come and go

Verse Two
And to the east the old city walls
Timeless wonder ignored by all
What memories you must hold inside
Lives played out in another time

Chorus
We must not forsake
the gifts that were bestowed
To dwell in hollow chambers
made of dust instead of gold
The time has come, we must awake
to the treasures that abound
We hold the keys to the kingdom,
but we do not wear the crown
What glory is a Kingdom
When strangers wear your Crown

Bridge
Drachma's and Dogma's and Castles in the sky
Fleeting distractions that pass in the night
The songbird in the willow,
Children playing in the fields
A bounty of riches for all to see
There will be times when we must travel
along those barren roads
But let us not forget the road that takes us home

Chorus
We must not forsake
the gifts that were bestowed
To dwell in hollow chambers
made of dust instead of gold
The time has come, we must awake
to the treasures that abound
We hold the keys to the kingdom,
but we do not wear the crown

The time has come, we must awake
Then we will wear the crown
We will wear the Crown.

really enjoy the uplift to the chorus
majestic tune....
