The crowd is looking drowned and a mother in tears
There are flip-flapping flags in the silence
And a national anthem's a blues in these days
Flag him down, rest in peace
What peace do you mean when the boys are coming back
The boys are coming back
When the boys are coming back in coffins
He's live on TV
He's dead as a hero can be
But... he didn't die for nothing, my dear
The video of his death is travelling the world
Flag him down, rest in peace
What peace do you mean when the boys are coming back
The boys are coming back
When the boys are coming back in coffins
Way back in the crowd
A girl says goodbye to a boy
To a boy who's parading to heaven
And she puts all the blame on the government
Flag him down, rest in peace
What peace do you mean when the boys are coming back
The boys are coming back
When the boys are coming back in coffins
