We were the children of `45
Loaded like pistols and taught how to die
We looked the enemy straight in the eye (And never surrender)
Through trenches dug in the back of my mind
I go over the top time after time
Me and the ones we left behind (Faces I'll always remember)

Now there's no fight left within me, but the writing of this wrong
As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
Like brothers in blood it seems that we've been -Too Long A Soldier

In the city of monuments, among the flags of all governments
The order of battle is written in the shadows of a hard black line
Where people cry for a nations scars
And heros sleep beneath a blanket of stars
