"Remembrance Day" as written by James Douglas Vallance and Bryan Adams....
In the forest, in the snow
All those many years ago
Hailstones and epitaphs
All these body bags and half-mast flags
In the cemetery where they fell
All those many years ago
Now it's just a memory
Eroded by the years.
Forgotten heroes underground
Wrinkled faces gathered round
Hailstones and epitaphs
Roses on a barbwire fence
Winter landscape, never change,
Oh it must have been the same
In the forest, in the snow
All those many years ago

Remembrance Day
All they have is memories
Photographs in silver frames
Remembrance Day
Lost forever in a field,
In a foreign land, many miles away
In the forest, in the snow
All those many years ago
Bombs and victims blown sky high
Buried where they lie
A generation underground
Wrinkled faces gathered round
Won't ever bring them back
Never bring them back
Remembrance Day
Remembrance Day

    My InterpretationIt's about war. Specifically, it's about fallen soldiers and how their dying in battle affects their loved ones. I think the line is "Oh, we must have been insane," (as opposed to "oh, it must have been the same") referring to how stupid war is.
