Written about the Omaha beach landing on D day WWII. Possibly the greatest generation this world will ever see.

lyrics

Verse 1:
The blades will drop and the heads will roll
The blood will spill there’s no hope at all
Ahead not far, into this hell we flee
Lies a certain death if you survive the sea

Bridge1:
My men I fear on this beach we are dying
Let’s take to the hill and at least we’ll die trying
The blood we have spilled what we’ve lost here today
Will all be in vain if we die here this way.

Chorus:
All gave some, some gave all
We stand tall cause some gave all
All gave some, some gave all
We stand tall cause some gave all

Verse2:
The Magic men laid their trail of deceit
But that my friend is not a one way street.
The best laid plans are only made to fail.
It’s the lucky few that live to tell the tale.

Bridge2:
The fields they were flooded the guns they weren’t there.
Our brothers have fallen we’re left in despair.
The blood we have spilled what we’ve lost here today
Will all be in vain if we die here this way.

Chorus:

Verse3:
The bombs like rain, they fall from the sky
Reinforcements arrive, take the hill save our lives
Label no heroes as one we survive
Overlord came for the war turned the tide.


Bridge3:
Two types of men, the dead and the dying
Are left on this beach, so we better start trying
The blood we have spilled what we’ve lost here today
Will not be in vain we won’t die here this way.
