When the world hates a man,
He becomes an object for worship
His name shall be sung in symphonies
And his words w'd be taught in our classrooms
When the world hates a man,
He becomes an exalted piece,
He's lifted to live with the stars
And all his paths; drawn on a map for our generation to follow.
When the world hates a man,
They'll teach him to conquer thrones and
Defeat kingdoms and
Extend dominion, to all the corners of humanity.
They'll crown him with fame
and power
and more fame.
When the world hates a man,
They'll build him mansions on mountain tops.
When the world hates a man
They'll call him God,
They'll live for him-
They'll die for him
When the world hates a man
They'll immortalise him
Even if he did not really die
They'll paint his face on cathedral ceilings and stained glasses.
When the world hates a man,
They'll write poems for him.
Their hymns will preach his name
Their psalms will quote his truth
When the world hates a man,
They'll gather in temples and halls
They'll make prayers to him, for him
They'll gather in temples and halls.
When the world hates a man,
They'll make feast, huge banquets.
They'll make sure he sits
While they feed him from silver spoons.
They'll build walls,
Very high walls
They'll make him a fortress
They'll cover his head.
But when a woman Loves a man,
She must destroy the world if she has to;
she must knock down the walls that had grown over his head,
She must destroy fortresses,
She must reach his heart
because she loves him.
