Stop your crying, petty men
You think the world was made for you,
Your own happiness, your only aim,
It shows in everything you do.
Ah, so selfish to believe
Contentment is the goal,
Even if you disguise it
In the salvation of your soul.
You deduce a "loving God" must mean
That you deserve some inner peace,
And so long as you are happy,
The world's problems can increase.
Maybe you should consider
The meaning is not be be merry, full of joy,
You're not meant to live your life
As a childish little boy!
Ignore your self-struggle!
Deny that inner-fight!
Try to give your life
To make this cruel world right.
Life is grand!
And the fight is greater
Than the man.
To live, to fight, to breathe, to sacrifice
A peaceful happiness within,
Yet through your struggle
Fight with a knowing grin.
Ah! Forgive this cynic's angry tone
So much to ask you to conceive
That no sacrifice is too great,
In the fight for what you believe.
In finding a destiny for your passion,
You will discover of what true happiness is made.
The sweat, the tears, the blood,
The noble pursuit of your crusade
Will bring you a sense of truth
And you will be completed, be fulfilled
In an ending your soul sought
With the courage that your heart willed.
