Oh’ ancient one, high in the sky
Do you shed so many tears?
As you watch the senseless way man dies
Through hate and senseless fears.
Oh’ mighty orb, you’ve seen it all
All the tears and wasted blood
As young lads lie in sticky pools
Of blood like caked up mud.
You’ve watched man with his high ideals
And all his foolish words.
Those rigid dogmas sad but real
And some good words he’s blurred.
You’ve watched it many times before
Do you wonder if they’ll learn?
You watch them make their own pure Hell
As the devil’s fires burn.
You ride the skies and watch it all
As you sadly go your way
Do your tears come with the falling rain
As their heartless games they play.
