about

"May coward shame disdain his name
The wretch that dares not to die."

lyrics

Into Battle by Julian Grenfell 1915, Macpherson`s Farewell by Robert Burns 1788, Fey from The Battle of Otterbourne by Anon

1. Verse
All life is colour and warmth and light,
And a striving evermore for these;
And he is dead who will not fight;
And who dies fighting has increase.

Chorus
Outcasts united
impatient to fight
Brave hearts
Outnumbered
on glory or death

2. Verse
And when the burning moment breaks,
And all things else are out of mind,
And only joy of battle takes
Him by the throat and makes him blind,

3. Verse
Through joy and blindness he shall know,
Not caring much to know, that still
Nor lead, nor steel shall reach him, so
That it be not the Destined Will.

4. Verse
The thundering line of battle stands,
And in the air death moans and sings;
But day shall clasp him with strong hands,
And night shall fold him in soft wings.

this is more than battle – it`s my religion

Ignite the fire in my heart
Ignite the fire in my eyes
day shall clasp me with strong hands,
and night shall fold me in soft wings.

5. Verse
Now farewell light – thou sunshine bright
And all beneath the sky!
May coward shame disdain his name
The wretch that dares not to die.

But I hae dream`d a dreary dream,
Beyont the Isle of Skye;
I saw a dead man win a fight,
And I think that man was I.
