"Throw your soldiers into positions once there is no escape,
and they will prefer death to flight."

Hear the sound of a machine gun
Hear it echo in the night
Mortars firing rains the scene
Scars the fields that once were green

It's a stalemate at the front line
Where the soldiers rest in mud
Roads and houses all is gone
There's no glory to be won

Know that many men will suffer
Know that many men will die
Half a million lives at stake at the fields of Passchendaele

And as night falls the general calls and the battle carries on and on
What is the purpose of it all
What's the price of a mile

Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army on the march
Long way from home paying the price in young men's lives
Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army in despair
Knee-deep in mud stuck in a trench with no way out

Thousands of machine guns
Kept on firing through the night
Mortars blazed and wrecked the scene
Guns the fields that once were green

Still a deadlock at the front line
Where the soldiers died in mud
Roads and houses since long gone
Still no glory has been won

Know that many men has suffered
Know that many men has died
Six miles of ground has been won half a million men are gone

And as the men crawled the general called and the killing carry on and on
What was the purpose of it all
What's the price of a mile

Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army on the march
Long way from home paying the price in young men's lives
Thousands of feat march to the beat it's an army in despair
Knee-deep in mud stuck in a trench with no way out

Young men are dying
They pay the price
Oh how they suffer
So tell me what's the price of a mile

That's the price of a mile

Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army on the march
Long way from home paying the price in young men's lives
Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army in despair
Knee-deep in mud stuck in a trench with no way out [X5]
