    Lyrics

    You all loved him once
    And not without cause
    He fed you through the winter
    He led you through the fog
    You hid behind his body to be sheltered from the mob
    You all loved him once
    And not without cause

    You all loved him once
    When his glory was unmatched
    Your signal when to celebrate was the bugle of his laugh
    Oh, when it came time to stand with him
    You scattered with the rats
    You all loved him once
    That time has passed
    You all loved him once
    When the future was opaque
    His reassuring visions were the pillars of your faith
    Through a thousand false horizons
    He would always fly it straight
    You all loved him once
    That turned to hate

    You all loved him once
    An uncommon love at that
    What you saw as a pedestal
    Was his elevated path
    So to satisfy the Philistines
    You stabbed him in the back
    You all loved him once
    Imagine that

    You all loved him once
    Yes you ate out of his hand
    He mirrored your confusion
    So that you might understand
    Then your soul was an experiment
    So he drew a diagram
    You all loved him once
    It ended bad

    You all loved him once
    And not without cause
    He helped carry your baggage
    When your strength was nearly gone
    And the more and more was put on him
    He tried his best to take it on
    You all loved him once
    Not without cause
    You all loved him once
    Now he is gone
