[1984]
Lyrics & Music by Alasdair "Algy" Mackie Ward and Michael "Mick" Thomas Tucker
Album: Honour & Blood
honour and blood
Are those ours, over head
Why can't they shoot the enemy instead
We took the King's shilling for killing the Hun
Over there, they must be blind
They think we're singing songs to pass time
Walking through land mines ain't really much fun
Seeing those blue skies reminds me of home
They seem to forget we're made of flesh, blood and bone
But we didn't come here to die on our own
To be remembered in a tower of stone

For their honour
For their honour and their blood,
Honour and blood

See the fear in our eyes
They kick us to make sure we're still alive
To fulfill the duty of shooting someone
If I were dead - I'd understand
But I never thought that I could kill a man
Maybe tomorrow I won't see the sun
Seeing those blue skies reminds me of home
They seem to forget we're made of flesh blood and bone
But we didn't come here to die on our own
To be remembered in a tower of stone

For their honour
For their honour and their blood,
Honour and blood

Are those ours, over head
Why can't they shoot the enemy instead
We took the King's shilling for killing the Hun
Over there, they must be blind
They think we're singing songs to pass time
Walking through land mines ain't really much fun
Seeing those blue skies reminds me of home
They seem to forget we're made of flesh, blood and bone
But we didn't come here to die on our own
To be remembered in a tower of stone

For Their Honour
For Their Honour and Their Blood,
Honour and Blood...
