In the truth of the night,
People can see,
What can’t be seen in the day.
~
In the truth of the night,
People will hear,
What they didn’t want to say.
~
In the truth of the night,
You’re all alone,
With your misery and your lies,
~
In the truth of the night,
Truth will be shown,
And you’ll hear the many cries.
~
Cries of fury,
Cries of hate,
Cries of things that couldn’t wait.
Cries of loss,
And cries of pain,
Falling faster than the rain.
Cries of fear and cries of war,
Cries of victims on the floor.
Cries of them,
And cries of me,
Do you think you’ll ever see?
~
See what you’ve done,
See what you’ve caused?
Do you know what this country’s lost?
I don’t think you want to hear,
The cries of pain and cries of fear.
I don’t think you want to see,
The victims falling to their knees.
~
So now what are you going to say?
That you’ve destroyed the U.S.A.?
You’ll never admit, to your lies,
Because you never want to hear our cries.
You’ll never admit you’ve caused us pain.
And we’ll never shield you from the rain.
