"A Cry For Everyone" as written by and Kerry Churchill Minnear Philip Arthur Shulman....
Run, why should I run away
When at the end the only truth certain

One day everyone dies
If only to justify life.

Live, I've lived a thousand lives;
And anyone is the right, the just life.
If I could cry, I'd cry for everyone.

Doubts, no doubt, is all I know.
There is no fate, there's no luck, what does that show.

Showing is proof, but proving is nothing but fear.
If I could cry, I'd cry then for everyone.
Hope, I've hoped two thousand years,but
No one hears, so I've cried, crying vain tears.

Always too late, too late to cry, cry for everyone.

    General CommentCould this possibly be about Jesus Christ ("I've hoped two thousand years") and Christianity?

    Gives the impression they are trying to escape death, which is inevitable. Is there life after death? (they don't seem to think so).

    I love the intricate instrumentals in this song, they have managed to fit about four or five different songs in a 4 minute song. Most prog bands now need about 20 minutes to mange this.
