Just another etching.

Just another etching on the wall.

As the day turns grey,

And her skin turns blue.

Little does he know, she fought in this war.

As he sits here whistleing in his four by four.

She's just another etching on the wall.

As the sound of the rifle echoes off the wall,

All he hears is the scratching of the cold stone.

Little does he know she fought in this war.

Her imminent blood spilled on the floor.

As he grabs more paint from his four by four,

little does he know she fought in this war.

As the day turns grey,

And her skin turns blue.

After all she's just another etching on the wall!

-Steven Howe
