We are off to war song
We march down the streets Of cities and towns, Swaying our mighty guns With our brothers in arms, We wave away with our final say We are off to war. Three hundred days Three hundred nights, In the darkness of space We pray for light, We wish we are home With our families, Sadly we will never return. I stood in the lands Of life and decay, Roles of tanks and men Stood shoulder to shoulder, We aim our guns At the armless enemy, We gave them holy fire That painted the fields in red, We left them behind To drown in their sorrows, And we are off to kill again. Three hundred days Three hundred nights, In the darkness of space We pray for light, We wish we are home With our family, Sadly we will never return. Unwearied men gathered around For the news of home and our family, We sang and praise they remember us But sadden when we heard, Our mothers have forgotten us And wished we never come home. Three hundred cried Three hundred died, In a hopeless world We pray to come home, Yet we are exiled Doomed to play the game of war, So we give you all our final farewell. The soldiers of the United Galaxy sing this song when they know they have no hope in coming home.
