WHERE THE EARTH IS DRY

The young soldier cries tears of blood,
Where the earth is dry,
Where gritty war rages,
Where life´s corpse lies.

Old woman, prostrated upon broken knee,
Where the earth is dry,
Praying to her Lord,
Asking him why?

Orphaned child, tear stained cheek,
Where the earth is dry,
Where is warmth, where is love?
Please don´t let me cry.

A universe hand in hand,
Where the earth is dry,
Gripping, fear of letting go,
Relieve this hungry earth.

We all cry, we all sigh, we all die,
Let it rain,
Release its pain,
Where the earth is dry.
