We Won’t Be Hailed As Heroes

Even if we give our lives
For them and the ones they care about
Even if we bleed out drop by drop
On the cold ground and still reach out

We won’t be hailed as heroes
Just as people who did as taught
Fighting a war never our own
Still dutifully giving everything we got.

We still won’t be hailed as heroes
For there will be nothing left of us behind
For them to remember us by
Just a vague memory that we were one of their kind.

Even if we die the death
They hold in great regard
We won’t be hailed as heroes
Just as people who worked hard.
