He's walking here beside me
With his blackened hollowed eyes
Uniform in tatters
Still he doesn't realize
His time to have moved on
Was many years ago
He's walking here beside me
This old friend I used to know

(chorus)
I'm walking with the ghosts
From the war we never won
Seeing dead men all around me
Pleading what have I become?
An existential being?
An un-elected host?
My life has changed forever
I'm walking with the ghosts

She's sitting in the chair
At my dining table now
Saying Mister can you help me?
Got to get up, don't know how
Half her face sadly is missing
From the suicieder's bomb
She's as clear as mother's helper
In a war where all's gone wrong

(chorus)
I'm walking with the ghosts
From the war we never won
Seeing dead men all around me
Pleading what have I become?
An existential being
An unelected host
My life has changed forever
I'm walking with the ghosts

(bridge)
A platoon huddled together
Sitting in my living room
Casting shadows on the carpet
Shaping fears I'll feel too soon

(chorus)
I'm walking with the ghosts
From the war we never won
Seeing dead men all around me
Pleading what have I become?
An existential being
An un-elected host
My life has changed forever
I'm walking with the ghosts
