about

(Adapted from Stephen Crane)

lyrics

Well do not weep maiden for war is kind cause your lover threw wild hands toward the sky
And the frightened steed ran on alone do not weep for war is kind
Harsh booming sounds of the regiment these men were born to drill and die
The unexplained glory flies around them in a field with a thousand corpses dying
Well do not weep babe for war is kind cause your father tumbled in the yellow trenches
Grasped at his breast gulped and died do not weep for war is kind
High above them the standards are flying them eagles emblazoned in red and gold
Teach them the glory of killing in a field with a thousand corpses cold
Mother whose heart hung humble as a button on the bright splendid shroud of your son
Great is the battle god and great is his kingdom
Do not weep for war do not weep for war do not weep for war is kind
