World, I want to leave you better
I want my life to matter
I am afraid I have no purpose here
I watch the news on TV
Abandon myself daily
I am afraid to let you see the real me

Rain it falls, rain it falls
Pouring on me
And the rain it falls, rain it falls
Sowing the seeds of love and hope, love and hope
We don't have to stay here, stuck in the weeds

Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change today? (Oh)
Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change today? (Oh)

You're not alone in all this
You're not alone, I promise
Standing together we can do anything
You're not alone in all this
You're not alone, I promise
Standing together we can do anything
World, you're not alone in all this
You're not alone, I promise
Standing together we can do anything

I want to leave you better
I want my life to matter
I am afraid I have no purpose here
The rain it falls, rain it falls
Pouring on me
And the rain it falls, rain it falls
Sowing the seeds of love and hope, love and hope
You don't have to stay here, stuck in the weeds

Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change today? (Oh)
Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change?
Have I the courage to change today? (Oh)

They've been sayin', you're sophisticated
They're complaining, over-educated
You are saying all the words I'm dreaming
Say it after me
Say it after me

They will blame us, crucify, and shame us
We can't help it, if we are a problem
We are trying hard to get your attention
Climbing up your wall
Climbing up your wall

Don't go there, 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me, when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're trying hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused, 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same as you

You were waiting for the elevator
You were saying, all the words I'm dreaming
No more asking, questions or excuses
Information's here, here and everywhere

Don't go there, 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me, when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're trying hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused, 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same way as you, well, but

I don't, I don't want anything
I know it's not, it's not your fault
I don't want anyone
As I do, it's not for you

Stockholders
Same shit, a different life
I'll get it right some time
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight

I appreciate a good murder ballad, and this is one of the most poignant I've ever heard.



All my life,
I ain't ever been a lucky man
Saw the back of my daddy's hand
Lost your mama to the promised land
In my time,
I ain't ever had a thing that's mine
'Til they handed me a baby fine
My little girl

There are only two things I know
I get ugly when the whiskey flows
Wanted you to know I love you so
And I would kill before I let you go

Taking off for Mississippi
Wearing someone else's name
Brought you in this world and I
Can take you from it just the same
If you leave for Mississippi
I will beat you at your game
Brought you in this world and I
Can take you from it just the same

My dear one
Heard you're whispering your plans to run
Off to marry some rich man's son
Bet he's never met a poor man's gun

In the darkness you could not see
The drunken devil instructing me
Two bullets in a crimson sea
Now I'm certain that you'll never be

Taking off for Mississippi
Wearing someone else's name
Brought you in this world and I
Can take you from it just the same
If you leave for Mississippi
I will beat you at your game
Brought you in this world and I
Can take you from it just the same

Grief and sin
When the righteousness of you sets in
And the blood in my veins begins
To ramble on
Now I know we can
Stand and judge the execution man
But we all have to make a trembling stand
Before the sun

Maple tree
Can your branches carry me?
Before the war, before the wine
Before I stole what wasn't mine
Can you bring my baby back to me?

In heavy air I feel it creep
And our eyes can't meet
A poison word that you chose
And the distance grows

And I don't wanna cry no more
And I don't wanna die a little more
Every day
And I don't wanna cry no more
And I don't wanna cry a little more
Every day

To pull yourself from harm
To be the braver one
To raise a weary hand
In a house that's built on sand
To wear it like a crown
To kick before you drown
To fight it and to cry no more

Will I be the warrior?
Or will the axe shine clean?
Steely eyed, your blood'll burn
I will save our lives

And I don't wanna cry no more
And I don't wanna die a little more
Every day
And I don't wanna cry no more
And I don't wanna cry a little more
Every day

To pull yourself from harm
To be the braver one
To raise a weary hand
In a house that's built on sand
To wear it like a crown
To kick before you drown
To fight it and to cry no more

Cry no more
I don't wanna die a little more
Every day
I don't wanna cry no more
I don't wanna die a little more
Every day

[Cry No More]
