Children of Tears

To listen to Children of Tears, click here

You are the cross where the hopes of the world have been hung
You are the rope where the last honest man will be strung
You're the jaws of the lion that won't heed the crying of the lamb
You’re the voice in the thorns that would give his first-born as the ram
You're a promise of laughter but what follows after are more and more tears
You're a kingdom of love in which more and more hatred appears

You are the one who speaks about justice whilst wielding his axe
What you mean by redemption is giving out life and then claiming it back
You heal the body and soul you yourself tore apart
But you won't heal the real wounds the deepest/
            the most painful the wounds of the heart
Your head it is full of visions and dreams and ideas
But your heart it gives birth only to children of tears.

You are the groom who will never say yes to the bride
You're the bringer of love who dies with his arms open wide
You are silence eternal and darkness infernal all rolled into one
You create destruction and evil and try to bring peace with a gun
But my major complaint which I've saved till the end of my list
Your No 1 crime since the beginning of time is that you don't even exist
