lyrics

Hiding, covering
there's no time to blench
we are going to die
stuck down in this trench
with no safe escape

Waiting, for backups
which may never come
in this bloody madness
we'll have to hang on
to one killing hope

Taught to obey and serve
succeed at any price
dreaming for a miracle
but meant to sacrifice

Say your final prayers
as the captain said
'cause tomorrow morning
we'll be dead

Wait for the cavalry
war rages on the battlefield
nothing to do but hope
for the cavalry to come
we are on our own!

Digging, crawling,
creeping in the mud
rain of shells and bullets
spilling out our blood
we fall one by one

Searching, for shelter
in the dug-out nest
enemies are closing-in
will it ever end?
the onslaught begins

Slaughtered by the artillery
way out of supplies
hiding under corpses
between rats and fleas and lice

Say your final prayers
as the Captain said
we'll be storming towards
no man's land

Wait for the cavalry
war rages on the battlefield
nothing to do but hope
for the cavalry to come
we are on our own!

The runner came
brought down our faith
we were left to fight their war

The runner came
the message said
"there's no backups you're alone!"

The runner came
the message said
"there's no backups you're alone!"

Wait for the cavalry
war rages on the battlefield
nothing to do but hope
but the cavalry won't come
we are on our ow
