The human drum
Beats a rhythm of life
The clothes he wears
Date back to the war
He talks a lot
Often to himself
She don't say much
Just cuts his hair
She can't remember
Before the heat
He can't remember
His wife's christian name
Paint me a picture
Towers in sand
America can fall

Today I died again
I died again
I died today
Today I died again
I died again
I died today

Back to a year
Back to a youth
Of men in church and drug cabarets
Is this the age
Of empires and dance
Oh what a world
Oh what a world
She can't remember
Before this heat
He can't remember
His wife's christian name
Paint me a picture
Bodies in sand
Presidents can fall

Today I died again
I died again
I died today
Today I died again
I died again
I died today
