The Price of Command


This is the price of commanding–
You always stand alone,
Let no one near
To see the fear
Behind the mask you've grown
This is the price of commanding

This is the price of commanding–
That you watch your dearest die,
Sending women and men
To fight again,
And you never tell them why
This is the price of commanding

This is the price of commanding–
That mistakes are signed in red–
And that you won’t pay
But others may,
And your best may wind up dead
This is the price of commanding

This is the price of commanding–
All the death that haunt your sleep
And you hope they forgive
And so you live
With your memories buried deep.
This is the price of commanding.

This is the price of commanding–
That if you won’t, others will.
So take you post,
Mindful to each ghost–
You’ve a debt to them to fill
This is the price of commanding.
This is the price of commanding.
This is the Price -- of commanding.
