My teeth are black
I can't react
When people say my name
A heart of chalk
It's hard to talk
It's hard to stay the same
And I keep on getting older
And it's hard to earn my keep
In an army full of soldiers
Who are standing up asleep

Attention, men
We'll count to ten
And then we'll hop the fence
I turn my head
They're back in bed
They're zipping up the tents
Had another plot to foil
But I feel like I was tricked
I'm alone on foreign soil
And the wind is blowing quick
And the air keeps getting colder
And the fog is way too deep
For an army full of soldiers
Who are standing up asleep

They shot you down
You played the ground
I ran to lend a hand
But not to fear
You like it here
You laughed and told your man
And I looked at you disgusted
Like a thing from far below
And you looked at me disgusted
Like I already should know
And we're trying to push the boulder
But the hill is way too steep
For an army full of soldiers
Who are standing up asleep
