The Walking Wounded
We're in the church house kneeling down We're in the subways, underground We're in the bars and on the street We drive a truck, we walk a beat We're in the mills and factories We make the steel, we cut the trees A thousand yards stare as a glass But we will see you when you pass We lost our homes, we lost our dreams All our goals have turned to schemes We hurt each other and ourselves So after long traumatic spells We are the walking, we are the walking We are the walking wounded We cried out from the deepest pit But rise back up each time we're hit We fell from power and from grace Resurrection's in our face We're just like little girls and boys We play with grown up toys We never thought of sink or swim My brother hurts me so I hurt him We are the walking, we are the walking We are the walking wounded Like a circle, round and round We go up so we come down We don't explain or apologise We pull the veil across our eyes We see through your fake refrain We won't let you see our pain You may not know us but you'll see There are more than you'd believe We are the walking, we are the walking We are the walking, we are the walking We are the walking (a thousand hours of glass) We are the walking (see our past) We are the walking wounded
