the fans were whirlin' 
like the blades of a 'copter 
liftin' into the skies above some foreign land 
soaked with the bodies of so many friends. 

Johnny waved 
he was on his way home 
he waved goodbye to his comrades in arms, 
and all the twisted things he'd seen. 
he waved goodbye 
and the blades hit 
something 
maybe just Fate, but the blades hit 
the 'copter went up in flames 
and Johnny never went marchin' home 
Johnny never went marchin' home 

they took his name 
and they carved it on a slab of marble 
with several thousand other names 
all the fallen idols 
the apples of their mother's eye 
just another name 

meanwhile 
back on that burning shore 
Johnny's comrades stood speechless 
they looked with uh-uh-uh-uh disbelieving eyes 
as those bits of metal and the embers 
the embers of his eyes 
fanned out into the air 
black dust 
flames 

oh Johnny! some day they'll make a movie about you 
and in the making of that movie 
some mad apocalypse 
it will become even stranger than the simple act 
just a boy going up up up 
just a boy going up 
in flames in the smoke 
just another life 
just another breath 
and who'll remember 
oh eternity now 
as eternal as a sheet of marble 
eternal as a slab on a green hill 
and your name 
and all your fallen brothers 
and all the ones not cut 
all the ones remembered only in the hearts 
a mother a father a brother a sister a lover a son a daughter 
shall not shall not fade shall not fade 

your ancestors salute you 
and the gods of your ancestors salute you 
having having been formed by the minds of your ancestors 
the gods of your ancestors salute you 
having been formed by your ancestors 
the gods of your ancestors salute you 
they draw you in they draw you through 
they draw they draw you through that golden door 

mornin' boy [come on in boy] 
we remember you 
we conceived of you 
we conceived of your breath 
we conceived of the whole human race 
and we conceived it to be a beautiful thing 
like a tulip bending in the wind 
sometimes it comes back to us 
in the form of a handful of dust 
comes back in the form of a smitten child 
our raped daughters, ah the broken bones 
souls cleaved from hearts 
they come back to us 
and our hands are filled with their rotting tissues 
but we turn not our backs 
we press our lips 
into their cancer into the dust into the remains of each one 
and that love is there and will greet you, will greet you 
mornin' boy [come on in boy] 
it's eternal love 

well here, go ahead, run through that flame 
awww man, running through your mind 
you took a cat, you took a life, you took it by the tail 
and you swirled it around your head 
and you thrashed it, you smashed the life out of it 
and you knew that it would be your own 
but you wanted to feel, you wanted to feel it die 
because you know you would feel your own 
you would feel your own 
but you're remembered! 
you're remembered! 
you're remembered DEAD! 
you're remembered DEAD! 
you're remembered DEAD! 
we remember 
we remember 
we remember 
everything 
everything
