The crowd is looking drowned
And a mother in tears
There are flip-flapping flags in the silence
And a national anthem's a blues in these days
Flag him down

Rest in peace
What peace do you mean
When the boys are coming back?

His life on TV
He's dead as a hero can be
But he didn't die for nothing, my dear
The video of his death is travelling the world
Flag him down

Rest in peace
What peace do you mean
When the boys are coming back
The boys are coming back
When the boys are coming back
In coffins?
In coffins...

Way back in the crowd
A girl says goodbye to a boy
To a boy who's parading to heaven
And she puts all the blame on the government
Flag him down

Rest in peace
What peace do you mean
When the boys are coming back
The boys are coming back
When the boys are coming back

His life on TV
Dead as a hero can be
When the boys are parading to heaven, my friend
Put all the blame on you
On you

(spoken)
On you
