Forsaken

Tears fall like rain upon their grave,
they are the ones that none can save

To those who love outside Godís rule
or cannot reproduce manís pool,
the pearly gates will not unlock
preserving whiteness of Godís flock.

Tears fall like rain upon their grave,
they are the ones that none can save

Love only counts if couples share
ability to sire a heir,
no sterile man may take a wife
for broken tools will not suffice.

Tears fall like rain upon their grave,
they are the ones that none can save

Much worse than this, is also found
the graves of babies in the ground
outside the church, beyond Godís care,
as bastards are not welcomed there.

Tears fall like rain upon their grave,
they are the ones that none can save
