If you had one hour left to live,
If one hour was all you had left to give,
Would you waste it all trembling in fear?
Dreading the darkness looming near?
You who struggled through it all
You who stands fast, whilst others fall
You who has suffered from start until end
Is this how you want to be remembered my friend?
You who wouldn't be broken by storm or by rain
I was with you when you faltered
I witnessed your pain
By your side we crawled through the ice and the mud
As one, we fought through the fire and the blood
If this is our last moment, then let us do it right
Remember what life has taught us
'Those who live are those that fight'
If this is our last moment
Then let us sound our war cry
Of those of us who are truly brave
And are daring now to die.
