Let's go, oh yeah
Too many tears, alright

Now as you know
It's your time on this earth
From a rock in the cradle
To a ride in the hearse

We keep moving upward
Toward everything free
Kindly look downward
The more you'll see me

I've had six years of luck
I've had six on the line
And I've poured myself out
Like an old bitter wine

I've seen much of nothin'
And nothin's the gain
Thrown on my backside
I don't know my name

There's too many tears
Too many tears
Too many people
In too many years

Some tears of laughter
Some tears of pain
Break like a fever
And fall like the rain

Points on the map
Tears line the way
I've seen all your pretty things
And it won't stop the pain

There's been much confusion
With too many hurt
I feel my words dyin'
Down in the dirt

I've had lies in my head
There been lies in my heart
I've been tortured by this riddle
And I don't know how to stop

With a lightning flash and thunder, boys
And my mind starts to click
So do what you must do
And you best do it quick

There's too many tears
Too many tears
Too many people
In too many years

Some tears of laughter
Some tears of pain
Break like a fever
And fall like the rain

Doctor, oh doctor
My world's in you hands
I feel like I'm dyin'
And boy, I need a plan

Sister, sweet sister
There's blood on my lips
Why does it feel like
This room's doing flips?

The rains come on time
It's clear, I can tell
I've seen your work everywhere
And there's mercy in hell

With a lightning flash and thunder, boys
And again it all comes down
Do you see your life merging
With these poor souls on the ground?

There's too many tears
Too many tears
Too many people
In too many years

Some tears of laughter
Some tears of pain
Break like a fever
And fall like the rain

Too many tears
Too many tears
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Too many tears
Too many tears

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Too many tears
Too many tears

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Too many tears
Too many tears
Oh, oh, oh, oh
