This song features some heavily shmangled horn samples that were originally performed by Rob Blakey - thanks Rob!

lyrics

Sleep now, my beloved warrior
On the morn we go to war
To war, it's what we've waited for
our whole lives
To war, to war
Kiss me now, my beloved warrior
When we rise we go to battle
One last time

We can see the standards flying
We can feel the clash of steel
We can hear their voices crying out
But you know I refuse to kneel
We can hear their drums a'pounding
We can see the trail of red
We can hear their trumpets sounding out
But I'd rather they had my head

And you keep on trying to find your own way
On the other side
And you keep on lying to yourself
Like you've got something to hide

Hold me closer
Oh my love, hold me closer
If we live to see another day, we'll find a way
It's our time
