Lyrics
Why are dead men so contrite
I feel the chill of their bodies tonight
I taste the blood in the dustless rain
Somehow I know I will never be the same

Most of my friends are buried fore they’re dead
I hear them moan in the sand and cordite
Much more than blood or tears is shed
In this last cold testament of fright

The sun now gloats with its burning eye
Revealing more of the wasted mound
The random zip of bullets whip the sky
As I watch more souls go down

Wondering if it’s my turn next
For why should I survive
Dulce in decorum est
How pitiful the cry

Merciless forces are the fates
In this our charming war
Trembling amongst dismembered mates
It’s time to pay the whore

If I die, or beat the odds
It’s just a game to faceless gods.

If I die, or beat the odds
It’s all the same to faceless gods.

Lyrics by Daniel "LunaTrick" Staniforth, based on a poem by Nate Malis.

Always a pleasure to work w/ EZ
The music reminded me of early 80s goth (circa Swans, Sisters, Nephilim, etc.) - thus the vocal styling. Let us know what you think....

Lyrics
Brilliant lyrics. Nice work adapting the poem.... Very dark and you've worked them into a cracking, moody song.

Goth Night
This would've been on the frequent playlist on any goth night. I am so glad to hear stuff like this, as I never grew tired of the music of the Sisters and Swans, etc..

Thanks for a very modern gothic treat.

Good use of synths and drums. Could have used a little different melody to enhance the overall song.

I really liked the line: "Most of my friends are buried fore they’re dead."

Good job.

Oopps
When I said different melody I meant additional melody part such as a chorus or bridge.

Sorry about that.
