Battle Hymn Lyrics

8. Battle Hymn (6:57)
By moonlight we ride ten thousands side by side
With swords drawn held high our whips and armour shine
Hail to thee our infantry still brave beyond the grave
All sworn the eternal vow the time to strike is now

Kill, kill
Kill, kill
Kill, kill
Kill, kill

Gone are the days when freedom shone now blood and steel meet bone
In the light of the battle's way the sands of time will shake
How proud our soldiers stand with mace and chain in hand
Sound of charge into glory ride over the top of their vanguished pride

Victory, victory
Victory, victory
Victory, victory
Victory, victory

To the battle we ride we crossed a starlit sky
No space no time we'll catch the wind
Strange losses, men died we crossed a starlit sky
And still no space and time we'll catch the wind

Kill, kill, kill, kill
Kill, kill, kill, kill

Sound the charge into glory ride
Over the top of their vanquished pride
By moonlight we ride
Ten thousand side by side

Kill, kill, kill, kill
Kill, kill, kill, kill
