The dawn breaks slowly
and a piercing calm weighs down
Yesterday's wounds have yet to close
Distant thunder echoes all around yeah!
Mortar shells and Hades bells (fire fast!) from every direction
Thoughts of home and dying all alone (flow in!) like an injection
All I love in the world above flashes right before my eyes
all at once in my last affront the boy inside me dies

Chorus:
There's only one way home
Will I stand and hold my own?
There's only one way home
under an epitaph of stone

Skies of gray shroud the longest that I will ever see
I've lost five friends who'll never breathe again
I hold their tags of memory
All I love in the world above seems so far from our lives
All at once as I try to confront the man inside me cries

(chorus)
