my lyricsbox
Hear them whisper voices from the other side
Hear them calling
Former foes now friends are resting side by side

They will never leave our hearts or fade away
Live forever
They where far to young to die in such a way

How many wasted lives
How many dreams did fade away
Broken promises they won't be coming home
Oh mothers wipe your tears your sons will rest a million years
Found their peace at last as foe turned to friend and forgive
And they knew they would die

Gallipoli
Left their letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Gallipoli
Dreams of freedom turned to dust

Hell is waiting where the ocean meets the sand
Cliffs of burden
Where the soldiers rushed into a certain death

At the shoreline blood of heroes stains the land
Lights a candle
One for each friend who fought and died in vain

There is no enemy
There is no victory
Only boys who lost their lives in the sand
Young men were sacrificed their names are carved in stone and kept alive
And forever we will honor the memory of them
And they knew they would die

Gallipoli
Left their letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Gallipoli
Dreams of freedom turn to dust

How many wasted lives
How many dreams did fade away
Broken promises they won't be coming home
Oh mothers wipe your tears your sons will rest a million years
Found their peace at last as foe turned to friend and forgive
And they knew they would die

Gallipoli
Left their letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Gallipoli
Dreams of freedom turn to dust

"There are roads which must not be followed,
armies which must not be attacked,
towns which must not be besieged,
positions which must not be contested."
This song is from the album "Art of War" and "The Art Of War (Re-Armed Edition)".
