Our young generation,
Lost to the War.
With broken shields and rusty swords,
Can we go on any more?

Eyes of hatred,
Have seen so much pain.
For giving the first strike,
No one will refrain.

Troops advancing,
To their sure demise.
This War we live in,
Costs the biggest price.

“Go to your God,
To Heaven, fly Up!”
Angels come down,
“You’ve drunken your cup.”

I ready for battle,
For the Death I shall receive.
But with the Sword and the Shield,
I defend my beliefs.
