Crying country is yet to come,

Lucky country,
We are,
Bless country,
We are,
Burning country we become,
Crying country is yet to come,

We stand together,
Stand side by side,
One thousand k’s
Between us,
One more truck on its way,

Kids selling on corners,
Selling lemonade,
Cookies over there,
Sell with a thank you,
Hand out for free down there,
Where crying is yet to come,

City clear air,
Not,
So clear,
Cities aren’t burning,
Where crying is yet to come,

Cities are crying,
For mates in the country,
Reaching out,
With a flood of tears,
Few who understand,
Why the country is not crying,
Where crying is yet to come,


As you run from,
your burnt out house,
To see how,
Smith’s house did,
To see it stand,
Burning around,
Not time for tears,
Where crying is yet to come,

Time is yet to come,
To take in,
What we have done,
To pray the prayer,
About what has been done,
Neighbours are still burning,
Towns are still burning,
Farms are still dying,
Animals are still running,
Where crying is yet to come.
