    Tear Fly, Minds Open Wide


    One/Two/Thousand, thousand
    tears fall.
    New York City
    I’ve seen addiction crawls

    One/Two/Thousand, thousand
    cries weep.
    In my city,
    thousands street sleep.

    One/Two/Thousand, thousand
    Ask why.
    Why is it,
    we all must die?

    Six tears, six eyes, six more tears cry.
    the numbers
    cause this global state.

    One/Two/Thousand, thousand
    People cried
    For skylined towers fall 4000 die.

    One/Two/Thousand, thousand
    Now handle
    The altars burning remembrance candles

    One/Two/Thousand, thousand
    And more and more
    Dying day in day in seseless wars

    Six tears, six eyes, six more tears cry.
    to be saved,
    In Jah you must
    have faith.

    Six tears, six eyes, six minds open wide
    Everything said
    May not be truth

    Six tears, six eyes, six minds open wide
    Underneath the sun
    There is nothing that’s truly new
