Again, again, again

We have died many times

On fields so dark

Blood red against the encroaching storm

History repeats

And on this endless circle we tread

One moment living

Another, dead

For the sake of kings born

And their infinite greed

We fight with honour

With honour bleed

Again, again, again


Battles come and go

Against the sunset yield

Forgetting why we live, we’re born

To ride this storm

I know your face

From battles lost and won

A moment’s grace

Beneath a failing sun

All efforts spent

On useless war

We’ll rise and fall

And fall and rise

Again, again, again
