Eternal Flame

  • Well I just wonder if it’s ever done me any good at all (yeah yeah)
  • Well I’m not so proud but I always seem to fall (no no)
  • Well it a big stumble but it’s still a little step (yeah yeah)
  • And when I look around me there’s others that aren’t even walking, walking yet
  • Everybody’s dying to be heard (to be heard)
  • They shoot their guns and they shoot their words (shoot their words)
  • I can’t feel it ‘cause this coldness numbs
  • And the cut is deep before the pain comes
  • I say, I can’t feel it, well I can’t feel it, well I can’t feel that eternal flame
  • I’ve seen it burning at the cenotaph; I’ve seen it burning in the pouring rain
  • (Hey!)
  • Well they’re all together and you know they’re marching in a straight line (yeah yeah)
  • They’re all going to the same place at the same time (yeah yeah)
  • You better be careful, else you’re gonna get out of step (yeah yeah)
  • And you’ll cop a packet and then you know there’ll be nothing left
  • Everybody dying to be heard (to be heard)
  • They shoot their gun and they shoot their words (shoot their words)
  • I can’t feel it ‘cause this coldness numbs
  • And the cut is deep before the pain comes
  • I say, I can’t feel it, well I can’t feel it, well I can’t feel that eternal flame
  • I’ve seen it burning at the cenotaph; I’ve seen it burning in the pouring rain
  • (Hey!) (Hey!)
  • Well I just wonder if it’s always gonna be the same
  • Some kinda fun but you know it’s not a game, oh no
  • Well it maybe dark but the flame it always burns (yeah yeah)
  • Beside the railway station in the memory of the soldier’s tomb (no no)
  • A hole in the ground is sitting next to the sacred square (yeah yeah)
  • There used to be something, now there’s nothing, no there’s nothing there
  • Everybody’s dying to be heard (to be heard)
  • They shoot their guns and they shoot their words (shoot their words)
  • I can’t feel it ‘cause this coldness numbs
  • And the cut is deep before the pain comes
  • I say, I can’t feel it, well I can’t feel it, well I can’t feel that eternal flame
  • I’ve seen it burning at the cenotaph; I’ve seen it burning in the pouring rain
  • (Hey!)
  • Well I can’t feel that eternal flame
  • Well I can’t feel it, oh no
  • Well I can’t feel that eternal flame
  • Well I can’t feel it, just can’t feel it
