Who Are You, and Who Am I?

You shout in your sleep
Perhaps the price was just too steep

Is your conscience at rest
If once put to the test?

You awake with a start
To just the beating of your heart

Just one man beneath the sky
Just two ears just two eyes

You set sail across the sea
Of long past thoughts and memories

Childhood's end your fantasies
Merge with harsh realities

And then as the sail is hoist

You find your eyes are growing moist
And all the fears never voiced

Say you have to make the final choice

Who are you and who am I
To say we know the reason why?

Some are born some men die
Beneath one infinite sky

There'll be war and there'll be peace
But everything one day will cease

All the iron turned to rust
All the proud men turned to dust

So all things time will mend
So this song will end.
