Tears of sadness, tears of woe,
From those of peace who long ago
Came to show a way of light
But all man does is turn and fight.
Tears of sadness, tears of woe,
From those of peace who long ago
Came to show a way of love
But all man does is kill the dove.

Jesus I see your tears in the light.
Mohammed yours flow every day, every night.
Moses your tears just don't seem right,
Buddha your smile has taken flight.

Tears of sadness, tears of woe,
From those of peace who long ago
Came to show a way of light
But all man does is turn and fight.
Tears as they look upon this human plight
Where actions are losing true spiritual sight
Repeating the cycle material might
As humans pursue what they think is right.

Tears of sadness, tears of woe
From those of peace who long ago
Came to show a way of love
But all man does is kill the dove.
Twisting the truth at their own accord
Controlling the innocent, seeking reward
Power and greed are ever near
Love and peace lost to fear.

Tears of sadness, tears of woe
From those of peace who long ago
Came to show a way of light
But all man does is turn and fight.
