What did Caravaggio know?

They say that tears of blood fell from His eyes on that forsaken night, The picture of humanity in face of all the weight The waiting mystery,

They say that tears of blood fell from His eyes on that forsaken night, The picture of humanity in face of all the weight The waiting mystery, "The Agony in the Garden"

We saw a headline in the news four years ago, last night, Tears of joy fell from my eyes but my father said We failed.

We saw a headline in the news four years ago, last night, Tears of joy fell from my eyes but my father said We failed. "Mea culpa mea culpa mea maxima culpa"

Thank God he didn't see my face in face of all the celebration colours of a flag, Taiwan, the first in all our continent -- The first to finally stand, to say

Thank God he didn't see my face in face of all the celebration colours of a flag, Taiwan, the first in all our continent -- The first to finally stand, to say "Omnia Vincit Amor"

But my father says mea culpa mea maxima culpa Through what I have done, through what I have failed to do, forgive me Lord. We have failed, he says, to uphold the Truth.

But my father says mea culpa mea maxima culpa Through what I have done, through what I have failed to do, forgive me Lord. We have failed, he says, to uphold the Truth. "Why are you smiling? Do you agree with them?"

Thank God the oven timer rang, For what I have failed to do I stand.

In church, the incense rises to the heights of roman arches, choir singing, people loving, omnia vincit amor. But the cross around my neck, the white I wear, the wine I bear

In church, the incense rises to the heights of roman arches, choir singing, people loving, omnia vincit amor. But the cross around my neck, the white I wear, the wine I bear "Through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault."

One day, I'll walk down an aisle and I hope he'll be there, my father, but in every dream I've had, the dreams, they fail to dream. One day, I'll walk up to an altar, incense rising, smile

One day, I'll walk down an aisle and I hope he'll be there, my father, but in every dream I've had, the dreams, they fail to dream. One day, I'll walk up to an altar, incense rising, smile at the person who means to me what every meaning means

The choir, arches, people, who have known me all these years, they'll say We failed, through our fault, through our most grievous fault.

The choir, arches, people, who have known me all these years, they'll say We failed, through our fault, through our most grievous fault. "In the agony of the garden, His tears of blood will fall for her"

They're wrong. His tears, they fall, not for me but for all humanity. One day, I'll have the faith to face the faith of every person in their pews of every drop of blood

And on that day,

And on that day, I will cry tears of humanity,

And on that day, I will cry tears of humanity, of joy

And on that day, I will cry tears of humanity, of joy when the oven timers sounds,

And on that day, I will cry tears of humanity, of joy when the oven timers sounds, and the church bells ring,

And on that day, I will cry tears of humanity, of joy when the oven timers sounds, and the church bells ring, and my wife smiles back at me,

And on that day, I will cry tears of humanity, of joy when the oven timers sounds, and the church bells ring, and my wife smiles back at me, I'll be the first to stand and say

And on that day, I will cry tears of humanity, of joy when the oven timers sounds, and the church bells ring, and my wife smiles back at me, I'll be the first to stand and say omnia vincit amor.
