The Tortured King



Based on my interpretation of the first verse of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah":

They say that there's a sacred chord,
That David played and it pleased the Lord,
But you don't really care for music, do ya?

It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall and the major lift,
the baffled king composing Hallelujah...

In my mind, "the baffled king" became the tortured king on his throne room floor, singing out to God without seeing the light shining down on him.

An interesting concept and I like that you based it on a song. Nicely done. :)
