To my father
What of your sons?
All
Of your children
Even the ones
Sent out
To martyr
To face the gun
Precious bodies
Opposed to bombs

Led on led on
To take the path
Where
Our bright future
Is in our past

To our father
What of reason?
Say what you will
Believe
What you want
The record shows
What we are not
Our true desires
Not
our good thoughts

Led on led on
To take the path
Where
Our bright future
Is in our past

To my father
What have you done?
To the children
Born innocent
But come to harm
For dreams of glory
And just a line
In history

Led on led on
To take the path
Where
Our bright future
Is in our past

To our father
What good may come?
To let the children
Walk alone
To fear to fail
And need no savior
To be at peace
In our true nature

Lead on Lead on
Clear the path
So
Our bright future
May come to pass
May come to pass
May come to pass
