    Lyrics

    The sisters worked for the people 'round them
    Their Spanish lace wove some bread for the poor
    And they cared and tried but were worn
    With their fears and the years of heartbreak

    Dust and wine stained the men who knew them
    The sweat of days in the angry sun
    And the men were weak and they cried
    And they asked, "Sisters, make us holy"

    The sisters prayed, "Give us hope for something"
    The men asked, "Where is your God, today?"
    And the empty eyes as the sisters prayed
    Held their thoughts unspoken

    There was nothing they could do
    Earth was dust for miles around, nothing new survived
    Everything was barren on the land
    And the truth they tried to understand just died

    Everything was barren on the land
    And the truth they tried to understand just died
