Artist's Notes

The lyric was inspired by events in the Ukraine and a haunting line from the great ancient Greek play Agamemnon, "Sing sorrow, sorrow, but the good will prevail."

SING SORROW, SING

Music by Joe Elbee

Lyrics by Alex O'Brien and Joe Elbee

News is coming in fast
Outrage as the shells blast

What's the motivation

To attack a nation?

Sing sorrow, sorrow
Good must triumph in the end
Sing sorrow, sorrow
Peace must rule again


Seeds are placed in soldiers' pockets
In the hope when done and over
Sunflowers will grow in

These bombed and flattened fields

I watch the news, I fear the tanks
I watch the news, I fear the rockets
Can't believe this nightmare is real

Sing sorrow, sorrow
Love must triumph in the end
Sing sorrow, sorrow
Love must reign again
Love will reign again
Sing sorrow, sing

A soldier calls home
And tells his mother of all the dead and lies
The truth is slowly spreading
Hearts are opening, minds becoming wise

In an underground shelter
A brave young girl frowns and sings Let it Go
She knows not why they hate her
But there's still hope in her heart that flows

Yes we've all seen this before
Casting a blind eye only causes more
Pain and death in pride and greed
For power, fueled by paranoia
Propaganda, information wars
Why is violence the only answer

To saving a madman's pride?

Sing, sorrow sing

We thought the war was behind us
Now the ceasefires don't seem to mean a thing
Who would bomb a children's hospital
Just to build an empire or to be a king
Just to build an empire or to be a king

Sing, Sing

Peace must come again

Peace will come again
