my lyricsbox
Come on, you raging soldiers, wherever you may be
I'd have to pay attention; please listen unto me
I'll tell to you a true tale of a soldier bold and brave
An ambush of some enemies dispatched him in his grave

It happened on a Friday morn, so listen to what they've done
They walked upon the mountains, the battle's just begun
The colonel cried, "Turn out, brave boys; your hearts are void of fear!"
They shot him without warning as you shall quickly hear

They buried him quite decently on a dreary summer's day
Come all the rest of you, my boys, for your dead comrade, pray
Too many died for nothing to finish endless strife
In mem'ry of the millions felled for a better life

Civil war in Central Europe, civil rights are on the run
Destination is destruction, and the war goes on and on
