There’s a firestorm on the rise in the eastern sky
And we’re all in this together until the day our fears subside
Through all this death it’s so hard to remain so proud
But together we’ve become what we can never be without
Your hands are shaking and you’ve never felt so cold
As you walk through the valley of death down the unknown road
But you’re a hardened soldier steadfast from the scars of war
You take more than a man can bear and you still take more

Face down in the trenches it’s so hard to keep your head up high
You’ve been beaten and attacked and you’ve seen your brothers die
We stand alone but together as one through the violent night
If we’re all in this together then we’re gonna have to stand and fight

You left a memory of the good old days behind
On a barstool back in England where the bullets don’t fly
Through all this death it’s so hard to remain so proud
But together we’ve become what we can never be without

You fight not for the honor and you fight not for your life
You fight for the cause and the brothers by your side
But the enemy’s-a-coming and good men are gonna die tonight
If we’re all in this together then we’re gonna have to stand and fight

Face down in a deep foxhole on the bitter frontline
The echoes of the mortars send shivers down your spine
The gunshots are getting closer so you better lace your boots up tight
If we’re all in this together then we’re gonna have to stand and fight
You fight not for the medals and you fight not for your pride
You fight for the freedom of a thousand shattered lives
With bloodstained hands and gun smoke in your eyes
If we’re all in this together then we’re gonna have to stand and fight
