They came to
Lay the flowers.
They came to
Mourn a song,
They came to
Know the hour,
They came to
Right a wrong.

They came to
End the sorrow,
They came to
Forget the past.
They came to
Beg or borrow,
They came to
Seal the draft,

They came to
Sing the singing,
They came to
Hear the words,
They came to
Start the healing.
They came to
Make it heard.

They came to
Mark the years,
They came to
A bitter end.
They came to
Dry their tears,
They came to
Lose a friend.

They came to
End confusion,
They came to
Love not hate.
They came to
Find solutions,
They came to
Sit and wait.

They came to
Free the pain
They came to
Steal the lies,
They came to
feel the rain,
They came to
Say goodbye.

They came to
Not surrender,
They came to
A devil’s crag.
They came to
scorn disaster,
They came to
raise the flag!
