"Lost In Battle Overseas" as written by and Cyril John/greenall Curnin....
Lost in battle overseas
Next thing you know you're on your knees
If you trust in someone on the screen
Then you'll be lost and overseas

Always sharing the time on your hands
Think of who plans
The future for you
There's nothing you can do

So you're in a uniform
It's your calm before the storm
Where is it taking us
One sign of the cross

And you're let loose
How long is the stretch of this hanger's noose
You kill someone just for gain
We end up losing just the same

Always sharing your time with no plans
Think of who hands
The future to you
There's nothing you can do

So you're in a uniform
And it's your calm before the storm
Where is it taking us
Where is it taking us

What does it do for you
This one sign of the cross
Lost in battle overseas
The last thing we need to know is on our knees

If you trust in someone on the screen
Then you'll be lost and overseas
Always sharing time on your hands
Think of who plans

The future for you
There's nothing you can do
So you're in a uniform
It's your calm before the storm

Where is it taking us
Where is it taking us
What does it do for you
This one sign of the cross
We are lost in battle overseas

    Song MeaningLost In Battle Overseas is about the crusades made by the Catholic church and how men who in fact knew little of God or what they were fighting for used religion to justify their actions and in the end failed in their mission to eliminate all other religion anyway.
