I can't say we won the war
But I can say we survived
Unlike some of your close friends
Who died standing by your side
Did they serve their country well
Fighting in a winless war?
Soldiers on both sides can't tell
What it is they're fighting for
What were they dying for?
I guess somebody lied
And families felt the pain
As many mothers cried
And when we bought into the lie
Who was counting up the cost?
Underneath the foreign sky
So many lives were lost
Their memory will live on, live on
The wall and all its casualties live on, live on
Carved in stone for all to see live on, live on
Serve to remind us all of the soldiers who have died
And the names upon the wall
Forever carved in stone, the names of those who died
The soldiers on the wall
