  • Who guards the truth, oh Lord most high?
    A frightened dove in the starless sky
    Oh-oh - so high, most high, so high

    Who hides the east from the blind man's eye?
    In the land of peace where the righteous cry
    Oh-oh - so high, most high, so high
    Where are the words - of a king
    Who moved the stars and the son
    To the light when my spirit was born
    Bring this wanderer home
    While mercy sleeps in the hearts of liars
    And the olive tree is consumed by fire
    Oh-oh - so high, most high, so high
    Put out the words - I'm the king
    Who moved the star above the sun
    To the light when the spirit was born
    Bring this wanderer home
    Come on, come on, come on
    Now David seed talks through his paper crown
    And he spits hot steel - see all the kids fall down
    Oh-oh - so high, most high, oh-oh
    Come on, come on, come on
    Come on, come on, come on
    Most high, most high
    Most high, so high, so high
