War Eternal

Over the years we've watched them go,
Over the oceans to and fro,
Oft to war at the wave of a hand,
To the shores of fate and no man's land,
But from the sands of the beachhead to the gates of Troy,
Even in triumph we feel no joy,
For the machine moves on in a cloud of fumes,
As chaos abounds with the souls it consumes,
While humanities lost forever hereafter,
Our destinies betrothed to the devil's laughter,
And with a father's last breath at every turn,
Our eternal cruelty is destined to burn.
