About the song
My anger at someone was taking a toll on me. I read that sending love to your enemy was the only solution to a situation that could cause a resolution...After examining my situation I realized the hate was poisoning us both and making any resolution more and more impossible.
I still can't send love but now I wish them only wisdom.

You want to hurt someone. for some terrible thing that they’ve done
you want retribution, but it will only bring you pain

Because it’s not your role, You’ll only hurt your own soul
and live your anger over and again

You’ve got to move your life along, You’ve got to be strong
Carry on, until you can

Cry Forgiveness, Cry Forgiveness
Forgiveness, It’s a battle Cry


You know that hate makes hate, and you want to retaliate
but if we all could just relate,We would all see

It’s the hardest thing to do and it might not seem fair to you
Until you come to understand, that it is true

That if you love your fellow man, then he will come to understand
the thing that he, has put you through

and he will, Cry Forgiveness, Cry Forgiveness
Forgiveness, It’s a battle Cry

Forgiveness-for the daughters and the sons. Forgiveness-just send love to everyone
Forgiveness-is a battle Cry

Cry Forgiveness-Ask it for the ones you love, Forgiveness-Ask it from the ones above
Forgiveness-Surround yourself with all their love
and ask forgiveness
