Challenge 8 - Lost In The Night

Lost in the night
A lonely hero with no-one beside you
You fought for your country
And now look at what it has become
As you are viewed as being old and dumb.

Stand up for yourself and you end up in jail
As rapists and murderers are let out on bail.
You fought for a free country
But now it seems you are facing a new fight
As you have become lost in the night

Pride, passion, people don’t know these words
They shoot each other in the day, like guns were toys
They rule the streets, the authority has no control
Keeping their heads buried like a nervous mole.

Lost in the Night
That is what you are
As you shed a tear,
Living in fear
Of a country that you once served,
Now looking like a worthless plight
As you become lost in the night.

Badges of honour are worth nothing
Your fists are now your pride
As past memories are forgotten
Like a wandering lost tide.

But you don’t forget these memories
As they haunt you in the night
Watching as your best friend dies
Is something that is part and parcel
Of a modern day with no strings or ties.

Lost in the Night
That is what you are
As you shed a tear,
Living in fear
Of a country that you once served,
Now looking like a worthless plight
As you become lost in the night.

As the sirens signify the start of a new fight.
That is sadly going to leave you lost in the night.
