Lyrics – Forgotten Years

He could be talking about today.

Few of the sins of the father
Are visited upon the son
Hearts have been hard
Hands have been clenched in a fist too long
Our sons need never be soldiers
Our daughters will never need guns
These are the years between
These are the years that were hard fought and won
Contracts torn at the edges
Old signatures stained with tears
Seasons of war and peace
These should not be forgotten years
Still it aches like tetanus
It reeks of politics
How many dreams remain?
This is a feeling too strong to contain

The hardest years
The darkest years
The roarin’ years
The fallen years
These should not be forgotten years
The hardest years
The wildest years
The desperate and divided years
We will remember
These should not be forgotten years

Our shoreline was never invaded
Our country was never in flames
This is the calm we breathe
This is a feeling too strong to contain
Still it aches like tetanus
It reeks of politics
Signatures stained with tears
Who can remember
We’ve got to remember

The hardest years
The darkest years
The roarin’ years
The fallen years
These should not be forgotten years
The hardest years
The wildest years
The desperate and divided years
We will remember
These should not be forgotten years

I said it’s the hardest years
The darkest years
The roarin’ years
The fallen years
These shall not be forgotten years
The hardest years
The wildest years
The desperate and divided years
We will remember
These should not be forgotten years

Forsaking aching breaking years
The time and tested heartbreak years
(unintelligible)
The blinded years
The binded years
The desperate and divided years
These shall not be forgotten years
Remember
