- Let the day remain bleakLet the dark clouds remain in the skyAnd the bird with his wing caught in the wire remain caught until his breath escape himLet the rain continue to fall brining havoc and discomfort to both man and beastFor life is not sweetSweet is not synonymous to life.
- Let the tears of the broken hearted continue to fall
Until there are no more tears to be shed
Until there is no more hope of tomorrow
Let the lost continue to wander without sight of help—without sight of day—alone in the darkness
For life is bitter
Bitterness is synonymous to life.
- Let the sounds of guns continue to echo through the hills of Gonzales…Continue to ring through the night putting fear in every householdLet the light of a peaceful morning never comeLet the sadness of another fatherless child remainFor life is hopelessHopelessness is synonymous to life.
- Let the sweet music of the piano remain dormantAnd the voices of the choir muteLet the clapping of hands also be made silentAnd the shouts of joy into sorrowFor life is not sweetSweet is not synonymous to life.
