For all the suffering, yet to come 

For generations, yet unborn 

Already conquered, by the storm 

Their minds warped, 

After the rain 

Born to hate, full of sorrow 

Dark and desolate, no tomorrow 

Mothers weep and beat your breast 

Cry and howl, filled with regret 

Behind the clouds the sun is shining 

But the bombs rain down, 

bringing darkness 

After the rain 

No more tears, no more crying 

no more fighting, no more dying 

Desolation, Washed away 

Endless darkness, After the rain
