Guardians of the gun and sword

Trading in hypocrisy and hate

The thin gray line, the mighty horde

March off to meet their fate

With bloody hands and conscience clean

They hide between the spaces

The real gain remains unseen

Men perish in untold places

At dayís end theyíll count the cost

An old manís war, the bill is paid

And back at home the cause is lost

Young boys lose their dreams in trade

In Godís name or for the nations

And never in the voice of reason

For those who stand at battle stations

May never know another season
