Song:


[Riff 1] 1x

[Riff 1] 1x with lyrics:
Father, it's time
Have a heart for your child who cries in pain

[Riff 2] 1x with lyrics:
Not a new sign
But a strike that'll blow those fools away

[Riff 3] 2x with lyrics:
Open your eyes
If you've got any you just look for too long a time
They spit on your name
Doin' everything darnned as highest crime

[Riff 4] 2x with lyrics:
They believe they could walk on the water
Playin' God
Sleep with the devils' daughter

[Riff 5] 1x with lyrics:
Killed your son and might kill mine
But you don't mind

[Riff 6] 1x with lyrics:
Why, Lord, why
Tell me why
In these lonely days
I'd need your answer
There's a reason why

[Riff 3] 1x

[Riff 3] 2x with lyrics:
How could you fail?
Still it's time, turn the black into the light
Why do you wait?
Do you look down and laugh at what you find?

[Riff 4] 2x with lyrics:
Can't you see they are mistreating their daughters
They believe they could walk on the waters

[Riff 5] 1x with lyrics:
They killed your son and might kill mine
But you don't mind

[Riff 7] 1x with lyrics:
Why, Lord, why
Tell me why
In these lonely days
I'd need your answer
There's a reason why
Why, Lord, why
Tell me why
You're the only light forever lasting
Tell me father, why
