Weeping
Written by Dan Heymann

I knew a man who lived in fear
It was huge, it was angry it was drawing near
Behind his house, a secret place
Was the shadow of a demon he could never face

He built a wall of steel and flame
And men with guns to keep it tame
Then standing back he made it plain
That the nightmare would never ever rise again
But the fear the fire and the guns remained

It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
He tells the world that it's sleeping
But as the night came round
I heard it slowly sound
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping

And then one day the neighbors came
They were curious to know about the smoke and flame
They stood around outside the wall
But of course there was nothing to be heard at all
"My friends," he said, "we've reached our goal
The threat is under firm control
As long as peace and order reign
I'll be damned if I can see a reason to explain
Why the fear and the fire and the guns remained."

It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
He tells the world that it's sleeping
But as the night came round I heard it slowly sound
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping

Say ah, say ah, say ahhh
Say ah, say ah, say ahhh...

(African chants)
(Doesn't matter now, it's over anyhow...etc)

It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
He tells the world that it's sleeping
But as the night came round
I heard it slowly sound
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
It wasn't roaring, it was weeping

Say ahh, say ahhh, say ah, say ah, say ahhh...
