lyrics

Conflict is a constant; we’ll fly ‘til the fighting has ceased.
We still have a will to win although our numbers decrease.
Landmines are across this ground; you and I both are at risk.
Listen as the noise resounds, punching the sky with its fist.
Change the tact, hunt in packs. We’ll defend and we will attack.
This is our rightful home, we belong here it’s ours alone.
They will fly in the night; we will punish those left behind,
We persist. Take a risk. If they’re armed we’ll fight with our fists.

Conflict is a constant; we’ll fly ‘til the fighting has ceased.
We still have a will to win although our numbers decrease.
Landmines are across this ground; you and I both are at risk.
Listen as the noise resounds, punching the sky with its fist.

We’re not the villains, we understand
It’s out of our control; it’s out of our hands.
We just want our children to grow,
But this violence is all that we know, this violence is all that we know.

What occurs if we succeed? Is it freedom? Is it greed?
Stick together in our clans; is this guilt left on our hands?

All of our tales, stories regaled, I know where it ends
All of our tales, stories regaled, I know where it ends
All of our tales, stories regaled, I know where it ends
All of our tales, stories regaled, I know where it ends
