With a soft, "Clansman"-like intro, this is yet another complex song with many harmonies. The story tells us of a man "who would be king" without explaining how, or even king of what. It certainly doesn't appear to be related to Rudyard Kipling's short story of the same name.

The man is in search of atonement for having killed someone apparently in self-defence ("in his mind he had no choice"), although he now seems to question the necessity of his act. The lyrics are a strange mixture of images of the character riding a donkey through the mountains, and pseudo-religious gibberish about God and the "good book"..
