How Many Tears
by Mark Heard

Album: Dry Bones Dance


Gunmetal grey for golden rules
White hot steel for the comfort of fools
Molten wills in iron hands
Forge new sons for the Motherland

How many tears will fall down
How many tears must fall
How many tears will stain this ground
How many tears must fall

Hidden mounds in jungle dust
Youthful voices forever lie hushed
Poets and peasants know the truth
But what in the world can one man do

How many tears will fall down
How many tears must fall
How many tears will stain this ground
How many tears must fall

A motherís eyes ache with her hatred
Her lips they are crippled with fear
She waits for the news that she donít want to hear
How many tears
How many tears
How many tears must fall down

Ainít no funerals
Ainít no prayers
Ainít no blood in the Government Square
Reign of terror
True and tried
Dries the eyes before theyíve cried

How many tears will fall down
How many tears must fall
How many tears will stain this ground
How many tears must fall
How many tears
How many tears will fall down
