Came home in 2008
button your lip, and don't let the shield slip
take a fresh grip on your bulletproof mask
and if they try to break down your disguise
with their questions
you can hide hide hide
behind paranoid eyes
- From Paranoid Eyes by Pink Floyd
Big ol' words!
Vaye was a young soldier with big dreams. He wished to become a hero, vanquishing the "bad guys" and winning wars. It all seemed like an enticing game to him, but alas, this did not prove to be the case. He returned from combat a mere two months later, completely psychologically damaged from the horrors he had witnessed. Though years of constant perseverance certainly have helped Vaye learn to function again, some scars never healed. The raw, unfading memories of battle haunt him to this day, despite his best efforts to keep them under wraps.
