These mist covered mountains. Are a home now for me. But my home is the lowlands. And always will be.

Some day you'll return. Your valleys and your farms. And you'll no longer burn to be brothers in arms.

Through these fields of destruction. Baptisms of fire. I've witnessed your suffering. As the battles raged higher.

And though they did hurt you so bad. In the fear and alarm. You did not desert me my brothers in arms.

The´re so many different worlds. So many different suns. We have just one world. But we live in different ones.

Now the sun's gone to hell. The moon's riding high. Let me bid you farewell. Every man has to die.

But it's written in the starlight. And every line in your palm. We're fools to make war on our brothers in arms.
