    Our bunkers were full and the enemy lay all around
    Live ammo overhead as the bombs fell to the ground
    A man threw himself down on top one live grenade
    Saving men from his unit and so gladly he paid
    The land they had fought for so proudly to save
    Now was covered in bloodshed and many dead brave
    The orders came down the last hill must be won
    Their courage moved them forward it could not be undone
    The numbers were stacked but the last of these men
    Would still lay his life down to let freedom win
    As it continued falling they advanced the field slow
    Till the last of these brave men would face the dawns glow
    On top of this hill now stood the very last man
    With a wound to the head and a gun in his hand
    As he looked down below him at death and despair
    And he left our American flag planted there
    He thought of so many who paid for this freedom
    And he wondered if people knew how much we need em
    So when he comes home as a hero of the war
    Would any of his people know what he had fought for
    And in all his confussion, despair, grief and doubt
    The war finally ended as one more shot rang out

The land they had fought for, so proudly to save.
Now was covered in bloodshed, and many dead brave.
The orders came down, the last hill must be won.
Their courage moved them forward, it could not be undone.
The numbers were stacked, but the last of these men.
Would still lay their lives down, to let freedom win.
As they continued falling, they advanced the ...
