I stood below the Lincoln
Lily white in a marble seat
He stood a trifle tall and so
They took him off his feet
The war has not been won he said
"The dyings just begun" he said
"The dying of our will to crawl
Up the ranks of men"

The shadows of a man will keep you guessing
The shadows of a man can take their toll
The shadows of a man can break your back then take your hand
But the shadows of your own can take you whole

I stood in a sea of stone-etched names
Some I recognized and others blurred into the same
Like the colors of a flag when all the red's run in the ground
A meadow bed of fallen men
Their shadows standing round

Standing in the shadows
Walking through their dust
Wading in the echoes

The shadows of a man can take their toll
But the shadows of your own can take you whole
