[1993]
Album: Get Me Out Of Here [2006]

"It's a story about a someone who has been cast aside by society and how we tend to ignore people who are different from us. The ending can be seen as happy ending or a sad ending depending on your point of view. I prefer a sad ending. This is a song I wrote in 1993. I have recently come back to it and rewritten it changing the chords, structure and half of the lyrics. I added some harmonica to it towards the end too. I am much happier with this song now."
There goes a man looking for an answer
But he won't find it in here
The world tells him lies
But to him it's the truth
He thinks back to the times when he wasn't so alone
The times have changed, and he doesn't even know
There's a pain behind the eyes he stands alone and confused
He don't know what to do..

There goes a soldier fighting his own war
A victim of society's lost cause..

His life is hanging on the line
Don't take him yet it's not his time
He wipes the tears from his eyes
And with his last breath he cries:
– I don't want to die,
I don't want to die..

No-one cares about what he thinks
You're one of many on the brink
What a waste, what a ruined life
How can people sleep at night

No conscience to hear the plight
Of all the suffers they cry.

His life is hanging on the line
Don't take him yet it's not his time
And he wipes the tears from his eyes
And with his last breath he cries:
– I don't want to die,
I don't want to die..

[Instrumental Break]

I hear his cry across the land
His fate has moved to different hands
It's not so bad after all
Look at me I'm walking tall

His life is hanging on the line
Don't take him yet it's not his time
And he wipes the tears from his eyes
And with his last breath he cries:
– I don't want to die!
I don't want to die…

His life is hanging on the line..
