    Lyrics

    Look at him now, another used man
    Wearing the passing of his dignity with all the courage that he can
    He stood in the storm, carved out in stone
    He said I've worn my honesty with pride in everything I've done

    So where were you when my ship went down
    Where were you when I ran aground
    Where were you when I turned it around
    Where were you when they burned me down

    You see her now, all tired and worn
    She never thought her life would come to be so cold or so alone
    She walked in the light, fought bondage for love
    She said I cast off the chains that I was born with but it never was enough

    So where were you when my ship went down
    Where were you when I ran aground
    Where were you when I turned it around
    Where were you when they burned me down

    Silent souls washed up on the shores
    Left to walk the sands evermore, evermore

    Look at you now just chasing your life
    Make like the saviour of the planet
    You're just trying to get by
    Now you may walk the line, you may see it all through
    But I know you cry yourself to sleep at night just wondering what to do
