Look deep into my eyes
to the battle fields of our demise.
An end of days, a thousand ways
to paint this place a barren grave.
Arrived unsure of what to find
and lost ourselves both deaf and blind.
This charge will fail beyond the pail.
We'll bare our arms to no avail.
We'll bury ourselves six feet deep
and pray the lord our soul to keep.
But have no fear, when we're done here
we'll leave behind those we hold dear.
So tell me how to justify
ten thousand men condemned to die.
'Cause I'm afraid this grim crusade
Our eyes will burn, our bodies fade.

It won't be long 'til everything we know and love
changes with the marching of
the soulless troops of our sad end.
So grab your guns. It's off to war
to see your loved ones nevermore.
Say your prayers to night because
you will never see the sun again.

Gun smoke turns the skies to gray
we've lost the strength we need to say
our long farewell, the tolling bell,
the tail we'll never live to tell.
We fall to pieces one-by-one.
The end of our lives has begun.
And from this pain, a sweet refrain
is all that's left for us to gain.
No turning back now. It's too late.
No question now. We've sealed our fate.
We fight to die and don't ask why.
We'll make this song our last goodbye.
I'm sorry mom. I'm sorry dad
for the memories we'll never have.
But duty calls. I won't look back.
So wipe my tears and fade to black.

It won't be long 'til everything we know and love
changes with the marching of
the soulless troops of our sad end.
So grab your guns. It's off to war
to see your loved ones nevermore.
Say your prayers to night because
you will never see the sun again.
