Lyrics

There are eyes that cannot see

And fingers that cannot touch


That's the way of the world


There are dreams left empty and blank

And legs that have ceased to walk


That's the way of the world


There are kisses undelivered

And Sighs and moans unuttered


That's the way of the world


There are hearts no longer beating

And there's entrails spilled on the floor


That's the way of the world


There are eyes that cannot see

And fingers that cannot touch


That's the way of the world


There are hearts no longer beating

And there's entrails spilled on the floor


That's the way of the world
