When I go will my mother know?
Will my brother know I tried?
Will the government send them my old pens
And the letters I tried to write?

Will my dad as he cries all night
Will he still believe we're right?
As I'm drinking blood from a silver cup
With these men who chose to die

When I go will my mother cry?
Will my brother want to die?
As I'm drinking up an amber stout
With this god I've heard so much about

When I go will you be ashamed?
Will you still recall my name with pain?
Can't wait to see you hang
See you hang

    General CommentI think it is, the blood in the silver cup to me is a reference to the blood of christ in the sense that in death u return to him who created you. The "hang" means that he's angry and he hopes that in his death people will be sorry and feel guilty "hung" by their guilt in a way

    General Commenti see it as a song about war. from the perspective of a soldier who expects to die.
