I was born under an angry skyAt the edge of the world in darknessA place where the rain never ceased to fallAnd boys grew up to be heartlessTears were banished right from the startAnd the foundations of the walls that surrounded our heartWere laid deep in our souls and minds every dayIt was a well-worn path and there was no other wayAnd the wind blew hard upon the window paneThere was never-ending darkness and never-ending rainAnd the hearts of the boys grew dark in the nightOnly in your dreams could you run and take flightStill the morning would come and darkness remainedLook out of the window and it continually rainedEvery blow to the heart another brick in the wallThe more you laid bare the more it grew tallThe land of broken hearts is full of high towersTis a black and white land ruled by darkened powersTowers of lost tears and towers of painTis full of dark clouds and continual rainYet there were some who spoke of a world of lightWhere tears could fall and no continual nightThis world had a King who had come to this landThey put nails in His feet and nails in His handThe powers of darkness screamed in delightAs they pierced His side, this King of the LightHe had come to replace the hearts that were brokenWith power and love in every word He had spokenSo they nailed the Word to the cross that dayThen they took Him down and in the cave He would layAnd they rolled a stone just to shut Him inAnd the darkness fell and rejoiced in its sinAnd the brokenhearted wept for their KingHe had taught them to pray and taught them to singYet the rain and the darkness seemed to prevailBy the power of the sword and the power of the nailThen out through the darkness broke forth a great lightThe rolled away stone revealed a glorious sightThe grave could not hold Him and death was defeatedLook up to the throne and see where He's seatedOur King was victorious, the chains they were brokenThose asleep in the darkness were gloriously awokenIn victory He arose, He had shattered deaths spellIn the land of broken hearts the towers fellThe captives came forth their hearts were renewedAnd the powers of darkness were finally subduedNo longer prisoners of the darkness and painTheir tears were recovered and they fell like rain Bro Frank
