Tears like rushing rills 
Cutting through hills 
Flowing into stony valleys 
And settling in dark alleys 

My eyes are flooded with tears 
Am drowning in cold waters 
A man acquainted with sorrow 
Mirth is a fortune to borrow 

I feel like crawling back into the womb 
But where's the womb that bore me? 
Where's the breast that fed me? 
Where's the hands that held me? 

Tears like rushing stream 
Rolled over cheeks into steam 
Rolled through crooked mile 
Years turned into bitter bile 

Tears like rushing stream 
A never ending dream 
beaten out by a drummer 
Now welcomes my summer 

Tears like sizzling eel 
Left me broken to kneel 
At the foot of the Cross 
And considered all a dross
