Tears have rolled down many good cheek
Don't be afraid of admitting you're weak

Who hasn't been there? Hold up your hand
Tears are the wage of this land
When raindrop first fell to the ground
Even though teardrops were already around

Pin-drop you can hear if down on your knees
It's time, gentlemen please
Scars you know take longer to heal
So which do we try so hard to conceal
Bricklayer, teacher, firefighter or vet
But hidden away in the bedroom I bet
Drums have rolled for hundreds of years
Generals and soldiers still holding their ears

Makes out their music's slipped from the stand
Public emotion, be damned
