The Immortals of War

Tell them that this is war 

Where I lay my soul down 

To die a death not worth having 

Is this where we bleed 

Gone silent are the war cries 

No more running of horses

Who was it that said 

War was glorious 

Well tell that to the dead

Who died in the arms of sacrifice

As the bullets rained down 

And their cries rose 

Who was the one who told them they were immortal

They would live on in the hearts of men 

Well men forget and the war never ends 

What immortal men remember 

The dead 

A close friend

All forgotten once a bullet hit the head
