In the campaign of lonely, hungry boys
Few make plans and see them through
There is strength in numbers, strength encumbers
All of those who try to see them through
Coping with things beyond their control
With lights and fights and cigarette smoke
They hope to command an impressive show
If only for their own peace of mind
They hope to command an impressive blow
If only for their own peace of mind
The likes of these cannot be contained
By promises, laughter, or time
Passionate are their intentions
Coveted now is their membership
To the army of the lonely, hungry boys
Who follow outdated principles
And whose dreams spur them on still
At least they didn't sleep the day away
And whose dreams spur them on still
At least they didn't sleep the day away
The likes of these cannot be contained
By promises, laughter, or time
Passionate are their intentions
Coveted now is their membership
To the army of the lonely, hungry boys
Who follow outdated principles
Without which they couldn't even bear
Without which they couldn't bear to dare
