Reach forward
Do not touch
What you are wanting
Struggle hard
Get into the chains
Shackled and restrained

Don't let me into the fray
I am not part of this war
Don't let me go just
Keep me out
Are you to far gone to care?

Reach forward
Do not touch
What you are wanting
Struggle hard
Get into the chains
Shackled and restrained

My arms are leaden
I cannot lift them
I lay here
Am I restrained?
Am I in chains?
Tell me!

Reach forward
Do not touch
What you are wanting
Struggle hard
Get into the chains
Shackled and restrained

The war is over
I did not take part
Relief is my companion
Regret is its friend
The battle is long over
I did not reach
