Weeping lyrics

English

Weeping

I knew a man who lived in fear
It was huge, it was angry, it was drawing near
Behind his house, a secret place
Was the shadow of the demon he could never face
He built a wall of steel and flame
And men with guns to keep it tame
Then standing back, he made it plain
That the nightmare would never, ever rise again
But the fear, the fire, and the guns remained

It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
He tells the world that it's sleeping
But as the night came round
I heard it slowly sound
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping

And then one day the neighbors came
They were curious to know about the smoke and flame
They stood around outside the wall
But of course there was nothing to be heard at all
"My friends," he said, "We've reached our goal.
The threat is under firm control."
As long as peace and order reign,
I'll be damned if I can see a reason to explain
Why the fear, the fire, and the guns remained.

It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
He tells the world that it's sleeping
But as the night came round
I heard it slowly sound
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping

Is there a light?
Can you see the light shine?
I think I've found a way through (yes, I found a way)
I know things have changed, but the fear remained in me
Till I touched the light in you
Oh, say over, say over...
