lyrics

In poppy blooms, on Flanders field
They climb the trench, over the top
The shattered men, bare blasted trees
And still they march, drowning in mud

Counting the cost of our wars with their lives
They give their today if they don't survive
It's for our tomorrow they fight and they kill
When do we hand the butcher his bill

Upon the shore in northern France
A beachhead made, out of the boats
The broken troops, the craters gape
And still they crawl, among the waves

Counting the cost of our wars with their lives
Drowning in mud
They give their today if they don't survive
Among the waves
It's for our tomorrow they fight and they kill
Above the dunes
When do we hand the butcher his bill
Counting the dead

Dripping with oil, the Middle East
A shock and awe, lights up the sky
The scattered foes, the fields of flame
And still they climb, above the dunes

Counting the cost of our wars with their lives
They give their today if they don't survive
It's for our tomorrow they fight and they kill
Never ending
When do we hand the butcher his bill
Counting the dead
