Desperate Cry

Desperate Cry

Farmer stands watching, as his crops wilt away
Farmer stands watching, as his crops wilt away
Cry out to the Lord God, “Help me Jesus I pray!
Tis the land of my fathers’ and I must find a way!”
Farmer stands watching, as his crops wilt away

Lovers lie watching as their love blows away
Lovers lie watching as their love blows away
Cry out to the Lord God, “Help me Jesus I pray!
Long gone is the passion that we had yesterday!”
Lovers lie watching as their love blows away

Dying man watches as his life slips away
Dying man watches as his life slips away
Cry out to the Lord God, “Help me Jesus I pray!
Just another day longer, I’ll do whatever you say!”
Dying man watches as his life slips away

We all sit watching as our world dies away
We all sit watching as our world dies away
Cry out to the Lord God, “Help me Jesus I pray!
It’s the ond of the glory, culture lost to decay!”
We all sit watching as our world dies away
Sweet Lullaby

Through these grief stricken eyes
Fades a light, that once burned brightly
Now a hollow mind waits for sweet death
Once this weary old wreck stood tall back to the north wind
Now there’s nothing more burning inside

She came in the night
Through the window to greet me
Had the heavens sent her from above
When I asked her a name soft words whispered and kissed me
And I dreamt of her sweet lullaby

By the morning she’s gone
Through my head sings her song
And her memory it fades
As the moonlight greets dawn
So I’ll sit here and wait
For the day when she’ll come back
And I dream of her sweet lullaby

He came to take her away
From my arms, no longer with me
A single bullet fired, shot through the heart
On her grave I now kneel, arms raised up to the good lord
Shouting promise, for vengeance, deserved

A darkened night hides my face
Through the shadows to take him
To hell with this wretched old beast
The judge says, “How do you plead?”
Through my lips no word was spoken
To my prison, I’ll lay down and die
