"I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" as written by and Desmond/sambora Child....
If we go the distance we go all out
And if you force us to fight we go for the knockout
We haven't always been the same men
We are today
It took fire to purify us
What didn't burn is what remained

[Chorus]
And if we run, then we run
But we won't be the same
Leaving excuses for the weak
And if we run then we run
But we won't be the same
And we'll only have ourselves to blame

We are growing ever stronger
The more we die
The enemy will never take us
Never take us alive
Sometimes it's with our eyes closed
We find our sight
Sometimes it's in the darkness
We see the light

Today I stopped asking what it means and just believed
Today I stopped asking what it means and just believed
You gotta believe; right now
And now the truth of it is we've already got all that we'll ever need

    General CommentI like Christian fight songs, very powerful and exciting.
    The bagpipes are cool, but the chorus sounds kinda clunky
