Marching off

I Wacth my soldiers

Marching of to war

I see familar faces

My uncle and my brother

Why are they here ?

Its notfair!

All of our lives wasted

on something that shouldnt happen

BAM! To my left

BAM! To my right

Oh now your scared

BAM! Your brothers of war have fallen

And what do they get?

A flag on a casket?

Weeping wallowers?

The respect of a brothern?

Respect is nothing when your dead

And what does it matter? Were nothing, Replaceable

You die they take your place

Like water it keeps flowing

I get new brothers everyday

One day ill be like them. Replaced

So i march off to war

Since my fate is set

BAM! Im down

Ill see you underground!
