He is the king of all the land
In the kingdom of the sands
Of a time tomorrow

He rules the sandworms and the fremen
In a land amongst the stars
Of an age tomorrow

He is destined to be a king
He rules over everything
On the land called planet dune

Bodywater is your life
And without it you would die
On the desert the planet dune

Without the stillsuit you would fry
On the sands so hot and dry
In a world called arrakis

It is a land that's rich in spice
The sandriders and the 'mice'
That they call the muad' dib

He is the kwizatz haderach
He is born of caladan
And will take the gom jabbar

He has the power to foresee
Or to look into the past
He is the ruler of the stars

The time will come for him
To lay claim his crown
And then the foe yes
They'll be cut down
You'll see he'll be the
Best that there's been
Messiah supreme
True leader of men
And when the time
For judgement's at hand
Don't fret he's strong
And he'll make a stand
Against evil the fire
That spreads through the land
He has the power
To make it all end

    On the Piece of Mind tour Bruce introduced the song by saying that this was a song based on a book by Frank Herbert, and that he (Herbert) did not want them to call it "Dune," so they called it "To Tame a Land,"

    It is about the book Dune written by Frank Herbert. It is impossible to understand the lyrics unless you have read the book. It's a great book and I reccomend it to anyone who loves this song and wants to find out what it's about.
