This song is by Heir Apparent and appears on the album One Small Voice (1989).

Hero, Warrior
Sit behind the lines and make the call
Leader, Believer
A vestal three-piece high above it all

But until you've walked the miles
With the people that you lead
You can't understand their pain
When the common people bleed

Fuhrer, Big Brother
Victimize the weak and make us strong
Teacher, Savior
Sanctify your answers, right or wrong

But until you've walked the miles
With the people that you lead
You can't understand their pain
When the common people bleed

--You should be decorated
Adorned by scarlet bars
A celebrated General
To brandish blackened stars

--You should be decorated
Your ribbons frayed and torn
Upon your paper pedestal
For the children to adorn

--You should be decorated

Leader, Believer
Victimize the weak and make us strong
Teacher, Savior
Sanctify your answers, right or wrong

But until you've walked the miles
With the people that you lead
You can't understand their pain
When the common people bleed

--You should be decorated
