Grief

Sung by

LyricsEdit

Where is your little son lost, John?
Tears, John
Tears, John
Bruised in the rain
With his overalls torn
With one shoe off
And one shoe on

Tears, John
Tears, John

And where will your little son sleep, John?
Under the smokestacks
Under the heap
Under the tent where the canopy leaks

Tears, John
Tears, John

You're drowning in the grief
Of Jupiter's water
Let me open my teeth
And cradle you there
There's a bed for the boy
And a rope for the father
Both orphaned by Heaven
Where no child is spared

To who will your little son pray, John?
Dark are the strangers
That sleep on the train
There's blood on their cots
And bones on their plate

Tears, John
Tears, John

Who then will tend to the sheep, John?
While he treads in the place
Where the vicious gods preach
Where claws come in sharpened
On wolves in white fleece

Tears, John
Tears, John

Tears, John
Tears, John

You're drowning in the grief
Of Jupiter's water
Let me open my teeth
And cradle you there
There's a bed for the boy
And a rope for the father
Both orphaned by Heaven
Where no child is spared

Swing from my limb
And render your tears
The more that you shed
The deeper he nears
His two little hands
Push the chair from your feet
Drown in your beautiful grief
