Lament for a fallen soldier

lyrics

As I see my comrades falling on the battlefield
their martyrdom reinforces my faith in the struggle which got them killed
and like them, I will place my soul deep in the valley of death
standing proud against the enemy until the very end

Fight to the last breath
Only in the struggle do we find a true meaning to life
There's no reason to live without a reason to die

Despite many traitors and turncoats, I won't give up
I will continue until they drain my last drop of blood
This mission is a destiny sealed from above
Through barricades and minefields, I will march on

Fight to the last breath
Only in the struggle do we find a true meaning to life
There's no reason to live without a reason to die

Lament for a fallen soldier

In the desperation of the circumstances
I have not winced nor cried aloud
My head is bloody, but unbowed

I have not winced nor cried aloud
My head is bloody, but unbowed

Vomited out from hell to take my life, the hordes of demons will find me
unafraid
And even if I will fall today what I believe won't die with me

And even if I will fall today what I believe won't die with me (x2)

Justice delayed is justice denied
Oppose the evil that man created

For in death there is rebirth
This is war and we continue where you left off
Here we are, sitting beside your deathbed, overshadowed by pain

The copious tears we shed with sorrowed painful eyes
Will help us not to forget and to continue the fight
In our bleeding hearts we will always keep the memory of your sacrifice

*In memory of Barry Horne*
