The Stone Throwers:
A Man-Hunt For Vietnam War Draft Evaders


This terrible pain runs so deep.
I feel that I am a miserable creep.
What I once was, I will never be.
Don't you clearly see?
I don't know who I am anymore.
I live behind a closed door.
The old me is lost.
This has been a tremendous cost.
I no longer belong here.
I desperately want to disappear.
I don't know where I will roam.
This place has always been my home.
My life will never be the same.
You will no longer say my name.
No one sees or hears me.
I just want to be free.
Free a bird.
My voice is no longer heard.
All pain inside I keep.
When night comes, I no longer sleep.
I am like a lost sheep.
All I do is quietly weep.
The wall is oh, so steep.
Where oh where can I leap?
I hide behind dark drapes and peep.
Look into my eyes tears slowly seep.
Upon my brow I wear a frown.
My life has turned upside down.
I don't know what lies ahead.
The pain I feel outweighs all joy instead.
I am hanging on by a frail thin string.
I no longer sing.
