    Lyrics

    The cerebrum has suffered massive and irreparable damage
    He will never know what has happened to him
    If I have not been sure of this, I would not have permitted him to live
    Where am I?
    Father
    What happened?
    I need help
    What is democracy?
    What is democracy?
    It got something to do with young men killing each other, doctor
    When it's comes my turn, will you want me to go?
    For democracy, any man would give his only begotten son

    It is impossible for this severed individual to experience pain
    Pleasure
    Memory
    Dreams or thought of any kind
    This young man will be as unfeeling
    As unthinking as the dead
    Until the day he joins them

    I don't know whether I'm alive or dreaming or dead or remembering
    How can you tell what's a dream and what's real
    When you can't even tell when you're awake and when you're asleep

    Where am I?

    I can't remember anything
    Can't tell if this is true or dream
    Deep down inside I feel to scream
    This terrible silence stifles me

    Now that the war is through with me
    I'm waking up, I cannot see
    That there's not much left of me
    Nothing is real but pain now

    Hold my breath as I wish for death
    Oh please God, wake me

    They just went ahead and chopped off everything
    Oh god, please make them hear me
    They won't listen, they won't hear me
    They got to wake me up I'll be like this for years
    Hear me

    Back in the womb it's much too real
    In pumps life that I must feel
    But can't look forward to reveal
    Look to the time when I'll live

    Fed through the tube that sticks in me
    Just like a wartime novelty
    Tied to machines that make me be
    Cut this life off from me

    Hold my breath as I wish for death
    Oh please God, wake me

    It's like a piece of meat that keeps on living
    It won't always be like this, will it?

    I can't live like this!
    I-I can't!
    Please no
    I can't! I can't!
    Help me, somebody please, help me!
    Mother where are ya?
    Help me, mother, I'm having a nightmare and I can't wake up

    Now the world is gone I'm just one
    Oh God help me

    Hold my breath as I wish for death
    Oh please God, help me

    Me lying here like, like some freak in a carnival show
    Here is the armless
    Legless
    Wonder of the twentieth century

    Death has a dignity of its own
    Father!
    I need help
    I'm in terrible trouble and I need help
    Don't you remember when you were little?
    How and you and Bill Harper use to string a wire between the two houses
    So you could telegraph to each other
    You'll remember the Morse code

    Darkness
    Imprisoning me
    All that I see
    Absolute horror
    I cannot live
    I cannot die
    Trapped in myself
    Body my holding cell

    It's Morse code
    For what?
    S.O.S.
    Help

    Landmine
    Has taken my sight
    Taken my speech
    Taken my hearing
    Taken my arms
    Taken my legs
    Taken my soul
    Left me with life in Hell

    What's he saying?
    Said kill me
    Over and over again
    Kill me
    Oh god, please make them hear me
    Don't you have any message for him doctor?
    He's the product of your profession
    Not mine

    Kill me
    I'm asking you to kill me

    Thank you

    Save me please
    Father

    Each man faces death by himself
    Alone
    Good-bye father

    Inside me I'm screaming nobody pays any attention
    If I had arms, I could kill myself
    If I had legs, I could run away
    If I had a voice, I could talk and be some kind of company for myself
    How do I know they'll kill me?
    I could yell for help, but nobody'd help me
    I just got to do some kind of, see how I can go on like this

    S.O.S. help me
    S.O.S. help me

    Keep the hope fires burning
    While our hearts are yearning
