Nobody can imagine what they have seen
But it's still clear in their eyes, oh in their eyes
Their mothers saw them leaving, they didn't know
If they would come back, oh come back

Through the years they tried to leave
Their memories of life as hard as it can be
Feeling homesick, dirty and guilty
They had the strength to come back free
And re-begin a life of simple reality
But they felt that it was special

The boom of mines still echoes burning their old soul
And they can't sleep at night, oh sleep at night

Now we're losing all the trust
Towards those people who have fought for us
They all knew it was right
We're not half the men they were
And there isn't a good and just brave cause left
