Camel – The Birthday Cake lyrics

Weeks of monotony filled his life with an opposite extreme. No
Longer pursued by opportunists who disguised themselves with
Good intentions, his body regained strength. The government
Arranged his back-pay. The mass of generation-removed
Relatives ceased their dutiful visits and eventually no one came
To see the hero who had fought the longest war.
For his 50th birthday, the nursing staff organised a small
Party. To make him feel at home, the festive cake has been
Decorated in the form of a tropical island. Nude was visibly
Moved by the occasion and yet he seemed strangely distracted.
They thought it best to leave him alone.
