I'm alive in heart and mind, a man among so few;
it was a lonely art out in the cold dark dark

I burned your words, I breathed them in,
I buried them as seeds where those trees had been
And deep in my skin

I wrote your name, I spelled it out
I whispered it into my hands as a prayer;
a testament there

To all of you that's part of me,
is part of me in you?
All I can do is hope that it's true

I wander and I walk about
the torn and tattered earth of myself
It doesn't help
that war has placed inside me an ocean,
a ravine in between my words and their meaning

The man I was, The man I am,
The one I want to be are all above me
and out of my reach

Though I survived, I'm alive,
I'm a casualty of your love and war,
and nothing more
