I admit I do like to think of it as "one more," with MLK as one in a string of people who God sends to bring about justice on earth. And given that hearing of it, I like the fact that you can't actually tell from the words that the main character is MLK and not Jesus until the last verse.

The "what more" version ( I guess my idea of this is influenced by SBS and 40) -- that one makes me hear it as a kind of negative question: "What more is going to have to be done for humanity to learn to love each other? To what further lengths will people like MLK have to go for us all to get it? How long do we have to wait?"

Just some thoughts....
As always, mebythesea gives lovely insight. Thanks!

I do like "one more" than "what more" too, but either way, your explanations really helped me understand the song more.
