Dead Hero

The Samples
Language: English



On remembrance day you remember it all
Think of all the soldiers dead fighting in the war
Dead Hero, live coward, which one would you choose
Relish in our victories, pretend we never lose

A war to end all wars, try believing that today
They'll never give up killing,
they don't mean what they say

Dead hero
Dead hero
Dead hero
Dead hero

Private gets a call up, has a rifle on his shoulder
Doesn't last a fortnight, a letter has just told her
He died to save the country but she doesn't want to know
A call up in the post box, and he didn't want to go
Gravestones round the country laid with heartbreak wreaths
A loving family's memory swept up with the leaves

Dead hero
Dead hero
Dead hero
Dead hero

A war to end all wars, try believing that today
They'll never give up killing,
they don't mean what they say

Dead hero
Dead hero
Dead hero
