lyrics

i began to sigh when i saw the eastern sky all quiet on the front
the wind blew slow where the grass don't grow battle's are lost not
won
all throughout one lonely night with my comrades near at hand
i had seen within a lively dream that everyone was man

i grabbed my gun as the war bells rung i quickly rose to the task
to the trench go i where we would all lie each face had become a
mask
oh the cannon fire so into the mire blind from the smoky haze
the sun did rise across my eyes evening had passed away

the bright glare of the horns did share the sound of the charge with us
in double time our feet did ride ash to ash and dust to dust
some dropped their guns each one by one just a part of desolate few
in their tracks and along their backs taken in by the foggy dew

on and on we drove on the trench now so close i can't breathe
i stumbled and fell from heaven to hell this was my last chance to
leave
my fate was true as i came to alive but where shall i stand
there were broken tongues while foreign songs sung me to rise and
kiss its hand

now i'm a traitor not his nor hers my own colors won't fly again
such lofty praise on my soul did weigh unlike those empty men
here i am with my dagger in hand it touched my skin and then drew
some blood
to my throat i let the blade roll it dragged me down to the mud

i drew to the end my hopes i do send to those who have fought in a
fight
be ready to win and begin yet again to prove god is on your side
but if you lose to find that life is cruel get on with it and be gone
here's the thing with chess and king's a pawn is just a pawn

about

Kory Quinn Houston, Texas

A revelation! The steady pendulum of a land oil rig. He is tapped inspiration. Swinging twixt misery & pride. With uncanny awareness, he knows the exact point where two disparate paradigms collide. He speaks of our reliance on fossil fuels, corrupt political leaders, and fear. The perfect rallying cry for humanity from the heart of a working man. ... more
