Remembrance - Are you Ready to Fight - Who Did You die For ?
A song about what has become a series of " Wars to end all War " as opposed to " A war to end all Wars". For those who gave, remain, the displaced, the victims, the survivors, the lost, the found, those that fight, those that seek peace, those that have found peace and forgiven or been forgiven. May there be peace. May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be peaceful and free from any harm. © David Jaye
Are you ready to fight
Are you ready to kill
When you know what its like
Will it make you feel ill
With a gun in your hand
Will it make you feel grand - so grand, so grand
Are you ready to fight

Are you ready to fight
Are you ready to die
Will they get to you first
Will you stop and ask why
With the blood on your hands
Will it make you feel grand - so grand, so grand
Are you ready to die

Are you ready to fight
Are you ready to go
The stage is all set
But do you really know
Who's that pulling the strings
Hiding there in the wings - so grand so grand
Are you ready to go

Are you ready to fight
Are you ready to kill
Now you know what its like
Does it make you feel ill
With a gun in your hand
Does it make you feel grand - so grand, so grand
Are you ready to fight

Who did you die for - so long ago
Who do we cry for- I'd like to know
For as the blood red poppies fall they touch our hearts
To settle on tomorrows heroes down below
Who wonder if we shall remember them

What did you die for - so long ago
What do we cry for - I'd like to know
For as the bugler plays a haunting melody
The rousing call for freedom seems so far away
Were those who gave to give it all in vain

Where did you die for - so long ago
Where do we cry for - I’d like to know
And so the land you died for Takes you back again
Jerusalem was never really here you know
In England 's green and pleasant land

Who did you die for - so long ago
Who do we cry for- I'd like to know
For as the blood red poppies fall they turn to rain
To wash away the tears cos we've not learnt a thing
For all we do is just remember those - who gave
