So, so you think you can tell heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail
A smile from a veil

Do you think you can tell
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts
Hot ashes for trees
Hot air for a cool breeze
Cold comfort for change

And did you exchange a walk-on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage
How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl

Year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here
