The Sins of Mortal Men

Sometimes it helps to pause a sec 

To bow my head and genuflect 

To slow my breath and just reflect

On the sins of mortal men


Sometimes I laugh until I cry

We’re doomed to cry until we die

So I just can’t help, but sit and sigh

For the sins of mortal men.


Sometimes I smile to hide the pain

Or take a walk out in the rain

But it never helps to hide the pain

In the sins of mortal men


Sometimes I read about a man

Who lived the life his father planned

But gave his life to save the damned

From the sins of mortal men
