How did we lose all this
it seemed is was an evident bliss
overconfident it would be won
not a nation given to one song
i won't fight for a gentlemen's cause
shot in the back by misguided gun
(NO MORE)
this the end
(NO MORE)
till we meet again

we burn this city
so this union will be safe

Take- take me from this tragedy
to a place where i can hold my own
not pinned beneath these burning guns

pre-dawning of the northern lights
they entrench their works in the night
poor judgement by a union son
losing three soldiers to our one
one by one upon a funeral pyre
one by one until the all caught fire
(ONCE MORE)
this is the end
(NO MORE)
now we meet again

Take- take me from this tragedy
to a place where i can hold my own
not pinned beneath these burning guns
please- can you take me from this tragedy
to place where i can call my own
I DONT DESERVE THIS

NOW IS THE TIME FOR ME TO ACCOST YOU

on bended knees i am
unleash the cannons rampart
what was so great the cost
for should this fight be lost
maybe a hero will die in vain

Take- take me from this tragedy
to a place where i can hold my own
not pinned beneath these burning guns
please- can you take me from this tragedy
to place where i can call my own
I DONT DESERVE THIS
THIS IS THE END
TILL WE MEET AGAIN

    General Comment- This is a song about the Civil War told from the perspective of a Rebel soldier. And these are the complete lyrics. I'll post the words for the rest of the album too.

    How did we lose all of this
    Seemed like it was an evident bliss
    Overconfident it would be won
    Not a nation given to one song
    A war fought for a gentleman’s cause
    Shot in the back by a misguided gun
    (No More) This is the end (No More) Till we meet again
    We burn this city so this union will be safe

    Take, take me from this tragedy
    To a place where I can hold my own
    (Not pinned beneath these burning guns)

    Pre-dawning of the northern light
    They entrench their works in the night
    Poor judgment by a Union son
    Losing three soldiers to our one
    One by one upon a funeral pyre
    One by one until they all caught fire
    (Once more) This is the end (No More) Now we meet again

    Take, take me from this tragedy
    To a place where I can hold my own
    (Not pinned beneath these burning guns, please)
    Can you take me from this tragedy
    To a place where I can call my home
    I don’t deserve this

    Always accosting me you’re accosting me
    Always accosting me this will cost you
    Now is the time for me to accost you

    (On bended knees I am)
    Unleash the cannons’ rampart
    (What was so great the cost)
    For should this fight be lost
    Many a hero will die in vain
