Viva Songs to Learn

Shirehorse Song

Carrying the weight of our hopes for peace.

Carrying the weight of our hopes, they march across fields to the station beyond.  

Thousands of horseshoes sink deep into the mud,

Thousands of horses trudge to their final destination, final destination. 

Sorrow takes over when I say my goodbyes

My stomach turns when the sergeant arrives

I cling on tight as they take him away

The only thing I can do, is obey.

From Fens and Wolds to Flanders Field

Death creeps in slowly,

From Fens and Wolds to Flanders Field

Death seeps in darkly.

Gloom covers the decaying corpses

Gas takes over the final breath.

Weakness wipes hope away

Grazing in the meadows, playing in the sun

Leaving behind the pain of war.

Enjoying the peace of home, of home.

 

War on the Horizon

Who rules the old world? Who rules the new, in the race?

Strength in numbers, stand your ground.

Don’t lose face, stand tall.

Power lines are drawn, we cannot fall.

Form alliance, shout louder, stand tall!

 

End Song

Anger tore our lives apart,

Hatred filling every heart,

Friendship shattered, love expired

Our dreams turned to nightmares.

The war has ended, the war has come to rest.

Peace spreads like poppies on the field
