|Will history dictate forever, or will we someday break loose?|
Fold the flag Triangular show Country contain me And soldier no more Place in a box In three corners neat Over the mantle In silent entreat How many knew him How many cared Was madness that slew him And madness that dared Where will it end And where will it go A lifetime has ended And soldier no more Spirit inside it And never unfold Defender behind us A story untold Is life better now That we have made death Did justice prevail Or did it digress The story should tell A sacrifice made But history dictates And debts go unpaid Tweet
