The Ballad Beyond

Una canzone scritta dopo la visita al cimitero militare di Tyne Cot, vicino a Ypres, Fiandre.

My name is all I bring you,
My name is all I own,
But for this song to sing you,
Where is my name, I am unknown?

When sunlight soothes the headstone,
So green my blankets grown,
I know no rest or comfort,
Where is my name, I am unknown?

And those that lie here with me,
No sleep can bathe their bones,
Eternity torments us.
Where is my name I am unknown?

When Christmas guns fall silent,
And last post bugles blown,
Beyond that sound of stillness,
Where is my name, I am unknown?
