Please make them stop
They're covering their eyes
With child's hands they try to stop the cries
They don't know why you will go on
They don't know why you will go on alone

Red strings of prayer are filling up the sky
We stayed awake to watch the day go by
They don't know why you will go on
They don't know why you will go on alone

Please make them stop
They're covering up their eyes
These tiny sins are filling up the sky
