Taj Weekes And Adowa - Orphans Cry lyrics

Devils who ride on horseback
love my sleepy eyes
they come for one, they comfort none
babies too must die
hear dem slaughter, butchered where they lie
beckoning to the skies they weep
heavens won’t reply

orphans cry
the outskirts of your life
they cry
you indifferently deny

more, wanting more is not a need
your eyes are closed from suffering, your life of blinding speed
more, no, no more is what we plead
what if you child withered you watched
and simply couldn’t feed

the orphans cry
on the outskirts of your life
they cry
you indifferently deny

hypnotized in the cradle of a comfortable recliner
your hands on controls you simply flip by
their suffering, oh their suffering is not your reality
but to turn a blind eye, oh lord
is pure brutality

they cry on the outskirts of your lives
they cry, you indifferently deny

devils who ride on horseback
love my sleepy eyes
they know for sure you will ignore
you sleep, I sleep, I die

they cry on the outskirts of your life
they cry, you indifferently deny

If only my refrain, would end their pain
i'd repeat myself a million times again
oh lord they cry, they cry

one tear to many, one tear too many
