One man returns from war, faces reality of a society that cares only enough to send its very best. We look but do not see the price paid by some.

When the world was new
it was filled with you
now it is old
I have no gold

Child like dreams
locked up in silly schemes
crying in the night

I always knew
that I was in love with you
silver metal on my chest

I craweled past the line
found you in my mind
I thought you knew

Captain words
they are for the birds
reading letters

They said you left
no forwarding address
wish I could follow

Wind and rain
storms all the same
stepping through pain

I am going home
sins I must atone
too many deaths I own

Just where do I go now
can't feel the ground
see the horse and plow

That was many years ago
saddest day was when
she went a way

Where will I stay
flowers blooming
I am the dog the stray

Shallow grave
on the side of the road
cover by newspapers and snow

Did anybody know
that I came home
