Last of a kind I am, not missed or even known
In a moment of weakness I let you take me home
Now I’m listed all over — I’m a running joke
Some story the soldiers tell, that kind of joke

It’s not — it’s not funny

I was not welcomed home but they let me sleep outside
And this was more than most
And they let me keep my life

It’s not — it’s not funny

This was my only crime for which I'm twice condemned
If I get torn in half, how will all my running run?
Because in this war for me they won’t use my name
Because it fills them with honor and it fills them with shame

Sometimes I think on him
Hair snaking around my waist
My head thrown to one side
Every part of myself replaced

It’s not — it’s not funny

Between the sand and the moon there is no place for me
If I seem serious — that’s the way of the wilderness

Because in this war for me they won’t use my name
Because it fills them with honor and it fills them with shame

    Last of a kind I am, not missed or even known
    In a moment of weakness I let you take me home
    Now I’m listed all over — I’m a running joke
    Some story the soldiers tell, that kind of joke

    It’s not — it’s not funny

    I was not welcomed home but they let me sleep outside
    And this was more than most
    And they let me keep my life

    It’s not — it’s not funny

    This was my only crime for which I'm twice condemned
    If I get torn in half, how will all my running run?
    Because in this war for me they won’t use my name
    Because it fills them with honor and it fills them with shame

    Sometimes I think on him
    Hair snaking around my waist
    My head thrown to one side
    Every part of myself replaced

    It’s not — it’s not funny

    Between the sand and the moon there is no place for me
    If I seem serious — that’s the way of the wilderness

    Because in this war for me they won’t use my name
    Because it fills them with honor and it fills them with shame
