Unknown Civilian Lyrics

No statues erected to this man
No medals pinned to his chest
He had survived two world wars
And now he is laid to rest

Worked all his life
When work was hard to find
Degrading jobs with little pay
He'd shrug his shoulders
And laugh it off
Tomorrow's another day

On rocks like this
They built their empires
The legacy to the poor
On rocks like this
They built their fortunes
While the hungry wait outside the door
The unknown civilian
A life of toil
An unmarked grave in shallow soil

No statues erected to this woman
No medals pinned to her chest
She had survived two world wars
And now she just fights for breath

Worked all her life
And raised a family
A thankless job and never paid
She'd shrug her shoulders
And laugh it off
Tomorrow's another day

On rocks like this
They built their empires
The legacy to the poor
On rocks like this
They built their fortunes
While the hungry wait outside the door
The unknown civilian
A life of toil
An unmarked grave in shallow soil
