"Live On (The Wall)"
(Patrick Flannery, Steve Plunkett, Spencer Proffer and Graham Nash)

I can't say we won the war
But I can say we survived
Unlike some of your close friends
Who died standing by your side

Did they serve their Country well?
Fighting in a winless war
Soldiers on both sides can't tell
What it is they're fighting for

[Instrumental (Electric Piano)]

What were they dying for?
I guess somebody lied
And families felt the pain
As many mothers cried

And when we bought into the lie
Who was counting up the cost
Underneath a foreign sky
So many lives were lost

Their memory will live on, live on
The wall and all its casualties
Live on, live on
Carved in stone for all to see
Live on, live on

Serve to remind us all
Of the soldiers who have died
And the names upon the wall
Forever carved in stone
The names of those who died
The soldiers on the wall

[Ending (Electric Piano)]
