We fought your fight and we died in droves
In a rearguard action with no reward
We spilled our guts to cover your butts
Spending ships and lives we could ill-afford
And now Earth-side says we can't win
Well we could have won if we'd gotten support

Now they say pull back
Now they say pull out
Now they say the war is over, mission abort

But they're not here and they do not care
Our dead are just numbers on a page
They only see how the money rolls out
And that war is a costly thing to wage

So the Union sneers, and Union laughs
And the Merchanters turn and run away
And the stations where, we fought and died
If they could would throw us out of their bays

Give up, give in says Earth-side now
And the Merchanters sing the same refrain
But we won't stand this kind of defeat
and knowing our people died in vain

It was our blood spilled on the stars
Do you think you can deal it away?
Well you merchant-hogs better think again-
Mazian will make the Union pay

You decry our fights, you deny our dues
Well we can learn from every mistake
You'll repay what we spent in blood
What you won't give us freely we'll take

We'll contest each star Union wants
This is war not some bureaucrats game
So we hear you're calling us pirates now
Then screw you all we'll earn the motherless name
