Walking on a Thin Line
by Huey Lewis & The News

Sometimes in my bed at night
I curse the dark and I pray for light
And sometimes, the light's no consolation
Blinded by a memory
Afraid of what it might do to me
And the tears and the sweat only mock my desperation
Don't you know me I'm the boy next door
The one you find so easy to ignore
Is that what I was fighting for?

Walking on a thin line
Straight off the front line
Labeled as freaks, loose on the streets of the city
Walking on a thin line
Angry all the time
Take a look at my face, see what it's doing to me

Taught me how to shoot to kill
A specialist with a deadly skill
A skill I needed to have to be a survivor
It's over now or so they say
Well, sometimes, it don't work out that way
'Cause your never the same when you've been under fire

Don't you know me I'm the boy next door
The one you find so easy to ignore
Is that what I was fighting for?

Walking on a thin line
Straight off the front line
Labeled as freaks loose on the streets of the city
Walking on a thin line
Angry all the time
Take a look at my face, see what it's doing to me

Don't you know me I'm the boy next door
The one you find so easy to ignore
Is that what I was fighting for, no

Walking on a thin line
Straight off the front line
Labeled as freaks loose on the streets of the city
Walking on a thin line
Angry all the time
Take a look at my face, see what it's doing to me

Walking on a thin line
Walking on a thin line
Walking on a thin line

The Vietnam Veterans deserve at least a national holiday of their own for what they went through abroad, and at home.

@YouBastard95060 Totally agree with you, and I am from a younger generation.

Much of the vitriol against the soldiers came from so-called patriots who felt they 'lost their war for them' like it was some sort of g-ddamn football game. As a hard core anti-war activist in the sixties, no one I knew blamed the soldiers, although many of us felt that 'they took the job' and had to come clean about their mistaken belief in the lies they were told to get them to kill innocents who had done nothing to them before they arrived. It's happening again Don't get fooled again.
