Lyrics

[Verse 1] Few of the sins of the father Are visited upon the son Hearts have been hard Hands have been clenched in a fist too long [Verse 2] Our sons need never be soldiers Our daughters will never need guns These are the years between These are the years that were hard fought and won [Verse 3] Now, contracts torn at the edges Old signatures stained with tears Seasons of war and peace These should not be forgotten years [Pre-Chorus] Still it aches like tetanus It reeks of politics How many dreams remain? This is a feeling too strong to contain [Chorus] The hardest years, the darkest years The roarin' years, the fallen years These should not be forgotten years The hardest years, the wildest years The desperate and divided years We will remember (These should not be forgotten years) [Verse 4] Our shoreline was never invaded Our country was never in flames This is the calm we breathe This is a feeling too strong to contain [Pre-Chorus] Still it aches like tetanus It reeks of politics Signatures stained with tears Who can remember? We've got to remember [Chorus] The hardest years, the darkest years The roarin' years, the fallen years These should not be forgotten years The hardest years, the wildest years The desperate and divided years We will remember (These should not be forgotten years) [Guitar Solo] [Outro] I said it's... The hardest years, the darkest years The roarin' years, the fallen years These should not be forgotten years The hardest years, the wildest years The desperate and divided years We will remember (These should not be forgotten years) Forsaking, aching, breaking years The time and tested heartbreak years These should not be forgotten years Who needs someone to sing to you now? The blinded years, the binded years The desperate and divided years These should not be forgotten years (These should not be forgotten years) Remember!
