Over the Battlements

Bayonets, the trenches are dug enough
We’re calling an early bluff
Looks like it’s getting rough

Hold, we are semper fi
Dug in along the line
We all are gonna’ die

Do you think we’re allowed
To come back around
When the outcomes in doubt
I’ll come back around

We enveloped the straight away
Looks like we’re here to stay
This is the only way

The sun is over the battlements
Distant and yet immense
It doesn’t make any sense

The stars are out with a crowded blast
Aflame and streaming past
Do you think it’s gonna’ last?

Stay, tell me did we win?
Where has my mettle been?
Do you think we start again?
