CANNON FODDER

Leaden sky
Weeping on our helmets
Scattered like fallen leaves
Dead bodies all around

The deadly stench of bloodshed
The mud we are all caught in
Wondering why we are here
Why do we have to die for

Bullets
Spinning shrapnel
Bomb explosions
Fill our days

As we're trapped in
This inferno
Full of landmines
There's no escape from...

Death has come
In this overture to apocalypse
Death has come
There is no god above us
Death has come
In this gruesome battlefield
Death has come
To take away the cannon fodder now

Call to arms
For our mother country
Yet our country is deaf
When soldiers' mothers cry

What is the point of killing
Those who did nothing to us?
What is the point of fighting
For the plans of someone else?

Leaders
Wanted this war
Spread the hatred
Through the land

They have filled our
Guns with ideals
That are so false
Ignoring that...

Death has come
In this overture to apocalypse
Death has come
There is no god above us
Death has come
In this senseless, bloody war
Death has come
We are all cannon fodder

Chlorine gas,
Phosgene saturation
Fogs of sulfur mustard
Harvested the frontline

Here in the woods of Ypres
One thing I have realised
Dying for a nation's flag
Is just dying for a rag

Trenches
Barbed wire
They have become
Our last home

We're all martyrs
On the altar
Of the blinded
All we know is...

Death has come
In this overture to apocalypse
Death has come
There is no god above us
Death has come
Our names won't be remembered
Death has come
To take away the cannon fodder
