Love and Idols (from "Love and Idols")

Queens can give gifts.
Queens can buy passion.
Queens can set style and fashion.
Kings can wed wives.
Kings can keep titles.
Kings can have love and idols.

Love and idols,
Prophets and thrones,
Court recitals,
Tributes and stones,
Birth entitles,
Death will atone.
Love and idols!
I'm still alone.

Queens can sell slaves.
Queens can wield power.
Queens can rule fields that flower.
Kings can find fame.
Kings can show wisdom.
Kings can hold all their kingdom.

Love and idols,
Prophets and thrones,
Court recitals,
Tributes and stones,
Birth entitles,
Death will atone.
Love and idols, love and idols, love...
And harps!
And psalms!

And gold!
And land!
And poetry!
And music!
We're all alone!
