Soldier Man


Carry on, soldier man, as it if never was.

Carry on, soldier man, same as our society does. 

Bury your burdens, heavy though they may be,

Bury them deep, down where no-one can see.

Bury your anger, your fear, your hate and discontent. 

Bury deep your emotions, keep your feelings irrelevant. 

Carry on, soldier man, try to live in the main stream.

Carry on, soldier man, and never let us hear you scream.

Wherever you were when you did what you’ve done,

Whoever was there, man, woman, daughter or son,

Bury it still further down, soldier man,

Bury it as deep as you possibly can.
