lyrics

The radio sent out an illustrious sound
More moving than those lovely pop songs
The bells rang for war and I answered the call
What glory one beholds in departure

I think back to the purpose when God was on our side
Young in body especially in mind
Now the bible in my pocket holds no more meaning
Than to cover my heart

It didn't take long to realize we're on our own
I've heard of the evil in the world
But it's hard to kill when that young man's eyes
They look just like mine

(We marched through ragged ruins
Peered glass cut from their frame
As we go along we hasten the quick decay of time
It didn't take us long to realize we were always on our own)
