Glorious Souls

About people who make sacrifices for the good of others, who fight so others may live in peace, enjoy folks

These are the men who stood alongside gods

amongst the flames they stand tall

and when they finally fall

the kingdoms shall greet them as royalty

We sing for them as they struggle

in the trenches of old

in the biting, unforgiving cold

and the sands of time's conflicts

Weapons cocked and ready

the night turns to day in a flash

stars outshone and boom and crash

the hands of fate guiding them closer

For you dear friends

who fight for one world or another

each one I can call my brother

watching out into the darkness

Someday we will all know peace

We sing for them as they struggle

in the trenches of old

in the biting, unforgiving cold

and the sands of time's conflicts

In the decay of the autumn

Ghosts and memories burst into life

ghosts of burden and strife

Towering stone names those amongst the glorious

We sing for them as they struggle

in the trenches of old

in the biting, unforgiving cold

and the sands of time's conflicts

We shall light the path for the living

we the glorious dead

we shall guide the world for the suffering

we the glorious dead

We will remember forever the glorious dead

The End
