You buy a ticket for the execution

You see another boy die in vain

You hold the hand of a girl you've never meet

And that you'll never meet again

And he was only fourteen

So he was old enough to hand

(x a few)

You need to steady your bizarre emotions

You see your best friend die in vain

No-one believes he was a partisan

And yet he had to take the blame

And he was only fourteen

So he was old enough to hand

(x a few)

GUITAR BREAK

BRIDGE – BASS AND DRUMS ONLY

And someday they'll say the same of you (x 4)

CUTS OUT EXCEPT DRUMS, BUILDS BACK INTO

Because you're almost fourteen

So one of these days you'll hang

(to end)
