So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.

Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade, your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change? Did you exchange
A walk-on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year
Running over the same old ground, what have we found?
The same old fears, wish you were here.
