A thousand tears

A thousand screams
come ripping through the clouds
Why so many
that don’t understand what it’s about
Night after night
on top of their thrones
Searching and searching
for the one way home
For a limited time
they fulfill their need
Only to realize
the lust, the greed
I cry out to God
to show them His Son
That they would listen
and hear all He has done
That one Roman nail
would soften their hearts
Showing them home
and where love gets its start
I continue to pray
as I feel their pain
A thousand tears
come rolling down my face
