Lie alone in an empty bedroom
You were young so long ago
Lost the purple heart they gave you
Why did it mean so much before?

Crawled from the remains of war
Soon the world will care no more
They've never been through living hell
"Just an old man with a story to tell"

[Chorus]

NO ONE KNOWS
NO ONE CARES
NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOU NO MORE

Strung along on a soldier's pension
And you've survived so many friends
Fought for God and Country,
Only to be forgotten in the end

Crawled from the remains of war
Soon the world will care no more
They've never been through living hell
"Just an old man with a story to tell"

[Chorus]

And with each new generation
Another story ceases to be told
What about the new generations?
Will anybody know?

Someday you'll be forgotten
Just a chapter in the history books
And they'll see a thousand crucifixes
With no names at all
