Cry for the bird with broken wing
Cry for the world that will not spin
Cry for the loss of innocence
Cry for a love, turned loveless

Sometimes I think of you, when I'm alone
Oh no Cry...
Nothing will ever be the same
All is ruined and put to shame
Tears and stars are one and the same
When I look up through my focused lens

But sometimes I think of you, when I'm alone
Oh no Cry... tears and stars confide, collide then die
Deep inside tears run dry, but I cry and cry.

Tiger skins and elephant tusks
In guilted mountains seep disgust
I look at you and I want to speak
For once in a while be a man and weep
'Cause all the dolphins and whales have gone
All good tidings and hopes have blown
All our nightmares are flying home
And it's too late to do anything but...

Tears and stars collide, confide then die
Deep inside tears run dry, but I cry and cry

    General CommentI love the darkness that this song evokes and bet it's based on a literary work.
    Anyone have any insights?

    General CommentI think Siouxsie's animal rights side comes out a bit in this song... :) But its seems to be a very universal song about the pain/sadness in the world and feeling empathy/being affected by it all
