Lyrics

No matter how hard you try
You can never destroy
The last living flame
Of unbounded joy

You can thunder and rage
You can tear the city down
You can burn the evidence
And the innocent may drown

But you’ll cry in the rain
You’ll cry in the rain
When the last flower dies
You’ll cry in the rain

There’s always work to be done
There’s always cash to be made
To pay the last sacred cow
May your strength never fade

Was that your last battle cry?
There was no lonelier sound
Were you craving water
As you lay on the ground?

And you cried in the rain
You cried in the rain
When the last flower dies
You’ll cry in the rain

You can work like a slave
You may manage it well
But be sure to shoot straight
If you’re aiming to kill

Or you’ll cry in the rain
You’ll cry in the rain
When the last flower dies
You’ll cry in the rain

You’ll cry in the rain
You’ll cry in the rain
When the last flower dies
You’ll cry in the rain
