A storm of tears fills an ocean of grief
Heinous crimes, surpassing belief
Innocence slaughtered, young lives shattered
And to those who did it, none of this mattered.

Storm of tears, storm of tears
A maelstrom to last us a thousand years

A small-featured hand holds a cross to the heart
Not long started living, now from this world to depart
Hopes dashed on the rocks, young dreams pulled short
One school torn asunder, an entire world distraught.

Storm of tears, storm of tears
A maelstrom to last us a thousand years

Love is the flower that lies on the grave
Grief is the prayer that to loved ones is made
Comfort is the knowledge that their pain is ended
Hope is that in time hearts will be mended.

Storm of tears, storm of tears
A maelstrom to last us a thousand years

Their bodies committed, the blessing is cast
And we wonder how long the suffering will last
Our hearts are reached out to those clinging to life
May Goddess protect them and keep them all safe.

Storm of tears, storm of tears
A maelstrom to last us a thousand years
