Lyrics

Last to fall

Who will be last to fall
Does it really matter at all?
And who will remember their name
Brave to answer the call
Name engraved on a marble wall
Still war always ends in vain
.
When will ever learn
Before all the bodies burn
And another young souls move on
Say we fight for freedom and fight
For God
As they) stand alone or in their squads
And some will never make it back
Home.

As history will repeat itself
And some forget those who fell
These battles will just start all over again
So why must some insist
We resolve problems with swords and fist
Is Peace really that hard to comprehend?
.
Why does it always seem
Those who call for war
Will never lead
So the battle's left for the young and
Poor
.
They say we fight for freedom and fight
For God
As they make excuses and
Feed us lies
But still we all charge on
.
In the battles
Our brave still fall
With their backs against the wall
As our leaders tell us we need war
So we will gather the troops
Arm our bombs
To convince them their God is wrong
As the blood of the innocence
Still pours
.
Then once again those who decide
Will never hear that battle cry
So who’s to say?
Which God is right or wrong?
Why is it that those who preach
Believe that wars a way to peace
Don't they ever listen to their own?
Psalms

We go to battle
As we fight between Gods
But don't ask why
Every warrior is told that their God
Is on their side
How can they lie

So after we lose count of the dead
An enemy will raise its head
And the battle flag will fly once again
Then those who choose the war
Will send out our young and poor
When will the blood flow ever end
.
Not till we realize
The way to peace is not losing lives
To ideas of weapons and swords
When will ever turn
Before the bodies burn
And whose God will be last to fall.

When will ever turn
Before the bodies burn
And whose God will be last to fall.
