song of despair

one step then the next

is all we dare attempt

no sound at all except

a song of despair

with all to lose and all to fear

the world's end must be near

and you and i can clearly hear

a song of despair

down fell the town

down it came in a shower of fire

still they fill the church

but now the devil leads the choir

they say be strong, and don't give in

for time heals everything

but i hear millions sing

a song of despair
