Where do I go
Follow the river
Where do I go
Follow the gulls

Where is the something
Where is the someone
That tells me why I live and die

Where do I go
Follow the children
Where do I go
Follow their smiles

Is there an answer
In their sweet faces
That tells me why I live and die

Follow the wind song
Follow the thunder
Follow the neon in young lovers' eyes

Down to the gutter
Up to the glitter
Into the city
Where the truth lies

Where do I go
Follow my heartbeat
Where do I go
Follow my hand

Where will they lead me
And will I ever
Discover why I live and die

Why do I live (beads, flowers)
Why do I die (freedom, happiness)
Tell my why (beads, flowers)
Tell me where (freedom, happiness)
Tell my why (beads, flowers)
Tell me why (freedom!)

    General Commentthe song is about Claudes confusion. I think it is fantastic since it is an exellent picture on his privat thoughts and desperation, and on the same time it is the same thoughts that touches all the soldiers who went to Vietnam, and didn't quit know WHY, but where unable to (like Berger in the movie) turn thier government down.
    Claude is ready to follow any clue he couldt have, as long as it explains why he has to die in a strange country, and for whathe is doing it.
    there are no good answers to these questions.
