Are you certain
You got your facts straight?
It's been a long time
And the language may have changed
Are you certain
You trust your memory
From a time when we
Still believed in right and wrong?

Have you recorded
All the casualties
And all the strategies
Of this thirty-year war?

I remember
How the prisoners
Used to comfort me
Even as I locked the cells
I got to know them
Their eccentricities
Their family histories
And who it was they used to be

Back before
All the casualties
And all the strategies
Of this thirty-year war

What they don't know
Is that so long ago
I was a prisoner
In this very cell
What they don't see
Is the part of me
That still wears the scars of criminality

They don't identify me
They don't identify me
They don't identify me
Anymore

I will not be
Another casualty
Of my very own
Thirty-year war

They don't identify me
They don't identify me
They don't identify me
Anymore
