For every stern and bitter head
Preparing for the bout with death
For every freak tossed into line
There is a youth's dangerous smile
The deviltry in innocence
A path without signs on a fence
Laugh at the old, grinded by stress
Destroyed by tax, destroyed by war
In times when they didn't ask:
What're we fighting for?
When veterans sang and didn't weep
And we were all God's silent sheep

But that was then, we've moved along
It's shaking down, glad I'll be gone
These are the words of elders grand
Now that the world is in your hands
Can't argue that
You have control
Now is the time to take all they've stole
Is the greater sorrow a child yearning age?
Or an elder wishing they were back again?
