Apollo Papathanasio] Mama take a look at your boy Face a man without a soul He is standing in the doorway I’ll be gone, before the night is over I have to go, I have to run to the border Lost my way I run in desperation Lost the words I lost communication All I see is death beneath my window All I need is to heal my broken mind I will catch my own wounded shadow Just before we leave it all behind Mama keep the faith it’s alright Your boy’s a mercenary man A soldier made of steel A shotgun rings; the wind is calling my name Fields of gold beneath a blood red sky Lost my way I run in desperation Lost the words I lost communication All I see is death beneath my window All I need is to heal my broken mind I will catch my own wounded shadow Just before we leave it all behind Just before we leave it all behind 4.
