The Sound Of Crying

Hang out the flags, a new world order's on the way
Start singing now a song to greet the joyful day
Just when we thought the time was right for celebrating
With music of the spheres
What's this, a boat of fleeing refugees on
A sea of children's tears

Once more, the sound of crying
Is number one across the Earth
Once more, the sound of crying
Is number one across the Earth

We're only men and women doing what we can
Sometimes I think that God is working to a plan
Then other times I swear that he is improvising
Discordant and remote
Another orphaned baby in a failed uprising
Another real bum note

Once more, the sound of crying
Is number one across the Earth
Once more, the sound of crying
Is number one across the Earth
Once more, the sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying

And if you're listening up there
You could consider this a prayer

Well who am I to tell you how to run your buisness,
When you could strike me blind?
What kind of noise we gotta make down here before we
Destroy your peace of mind?

Once more, the sound of crying
Is number one across the Earth
Once more, the sound of crying
Is number one across the Earth
Once more, the sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying

And if you're listening up there, yeah yeah
Wooooo, waaaa-hoooo
Sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying (sound of crying)
Once more, the sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying
Once more, the sound of crying
