Forgotten Soldiers

We are the long forgotten
Just ordinary men
We fought for gain and glory
And met our gory end

We marched in fields of honor
Cause we were in the right
And ended up with nothing
Torn open from the fight

We are Alexander's army
Or Pharaoh's lowly slaves
The Romans ran us over
Now we're rotting in our graves

So long the woe-begotten
We soldiers of the past
Just pay us fond remembrance
And give us peace at last
