Everyday I live, I remember the sacrifice
Everyday I live, I ensure it’s not in vain
For those who gave their all
You shall live again through me
My solemn vow you are now forever

This may be the last we see our hero

This is an oath to the fallen heroes
This is an ode to the ones we lost

This was then and now
The last days before the return
The memory will not be silenced or erased

In the glory of your worth

This is an oath to the fallen heroes
This is an ode to the ones we lost
This is an oath to the fallen heroes
This is an ode to the ones we lost

I…I’m dying again
This was then and now the last days before the return
The memory will not be silenced or erased
May your deed bring peace?
A new resolution of change

This is an oath to the fallen heroes
This is an ode to the ones we lost
I…I’m dying again
This is an oath to the fallen heroes
This is an ode to the ones we lost
I…I’m dying again

    General CommentObviously a tribute to the US soldiers who have died (presumably in the Iraq conflict).

    While I agree with God Forbid's opinions, with regard to the pointlessness of the war and Bush's domestic and foreign policies, I am glad they didn't really mention them in this song, because I think it becomes more poinient (sp?) when the empthasis is left on the lives lost, and not the reasons for it.

    General CommentI agree, this song is well put together. I am also glad they didn't put too much politics into this song and ruin the purpose of it. good choice, good song.

    General CommentThis is part the story in IV:constitution of treason, which gives it a double meaning. This also does not necessarily mean the troops that do die physically, but those who have committed suicide and other things because of the post dramatic stress that this war induces.

    General CommentDimebag tribute as well, for you guys who didn't know.
    R.I.P Dimebag.
    Good song, and a nice concept for it, even though overall I can't say I'm a fan of the band.
