lyrics

My tears are engineers they're working overtime
They're making metal gears and forcing them in line
They're making catalogs of parts that fit the parts that don't fit anything

My tears are soldiers fighting on a foreign soil
They've taken casualties, they've seen enough of war
They're reading letters from their girls back home and smoking cigarettes

My tears are sailors and they sail away from me
They're sailing out to see it's where they long to be
Yet somedays I can still hear them gather on the deck and sing

Oh, blessed morning, oh, blessed evening come
We'll sail the stormy gale and sleep when the day is done
The ocean's majesty is evident with every tugging of the tide, but
Our greatness is hiding within our mundane lives.
