Black Tears of Rain

These tears of rain fall down to the ground
The flames of your deceit are all I've found
Gray and silver ashes that devour my soul
Daylights hands are waiting to take its toll

You can lead a horse to water
But you can't make him drink
You can lead a man to knowledge
But you can't make him think

All the years that once stood before me
Now all I see are the waves upon the sea
Black tears of rain that run down your cheek
Your lips never to move and never to speak
