How The Mighty Have Fallen

I start to walk and see tears in people's eyes

I can not breathe and start to cry.

Every breath, the air gets thinner

And ever step just gets bigger.

Are they tears of joy, or tears of sorrow?

I see my mother and dare to follow.

She steps aside to clear the way,

And I see a soldier sleeping away.
