The world is big and often wrong
But truth is bigger and twice as strong
Sometimes ain't pretty, sometimes ain't nice
But hold your ground, dry your eyes
Here take my word, take my life
Don't cry

They say they love you when juices flowing
When money's gone they must be going
Sometimes they pray coming from a friend
But you'll be ready if it happens again
You take my word, take my life
Don't cry

Don't cry when they wanna sell ya, don't cry when they wanna fight
Don't cry when they don't believe ya and you know you're right
Don't cry when they wanna paint you into a corner of their design
It's your innocent blood they want, it's your innocent mind

Don't cry when they wanna sell ya, don't cry when they wanna fight
Don't cry when they don't believe ya when you know you're right
Don't cry when they wanna paint you into a corner of their design
It's your innocent blood they want, it's your innocent, innocent mind

Well the world is bigger and often wrong
But your heart is bigger and twice as strong
Sometimes a mystery, sometimes it's blind
It won't deceive you, it doesn't lie
Here take my word, take my life
Don't cry
Here take my word, here take my life
Don't cry
Here take my word, take my life
Don't cry
