A noble idea at the time
With nothing much to lose
Now – the original crime
Leaves us in a garden untended
An inquest attended by none

And God’s tears fall on everyone
His work is never done
Shed in eternal pain
Ages of falling rain
But no measure of love unseen
Will ever wash us clean
And God’s tears fall on everyone

Who knows what might have become
Had clearer heads prevailed
Wings melted down in the sun
Nothing but an unbroken record
Of false starts and failure so far

Ooh, babe
I know just how you feel
Sometimes I can’t believe
After all of the plans that I’ve made
And the work that I’ve done
Still, there’s so much suffering and pain
Everytime I hear my children cry
My heart feels like it’s falling from the sky
I know the hurt in everyone

All ends in love
All is devotion

Music and Lyrics by Ed Goldfarb and Jon Seltzer

The Sad Truth San Francisco, California

If you wish they still made albums like they did in the 1970s, you're gonna love the Sad Truth - a wry and tuneful mashup of Steely Dan, ELO, Supertramp, and every other band you love from Back In The Day.
