In heated bloody battles they died
As politicians lied
Parades and waving flags
An evil nation prevails..

Elders teaching winning
Nothing short of sinning
At any cost
Our children have lost..

Enemies have landed
Spirited with triumph
The lingering conquest rages
Lives forever branded..

Freedom doesn't come easy
Sing a song for me
As you bury me in the ground
Dismal costs for liberty..

Empires have come and gone
Pagans toil building the way
For a taste of the reign
That Kings and Queens own..

Quest is for conquerers
Love is for lovers
Death is for the meek
Thrones for victory..
