Anti-flag – Shadow Of The Dead lyrics

Tonight, tonight, tonight...
I'm gonna stay awake.
Safe inside this trojan horse until day breaks.
Open it up, tear it up, fuck it up...
In the streets runs a river knee deep.
Hidden in the blood of our own lies the alphabet of the free.

As I walk through the valley in the shadow of the dead, will you remember them?

Ce soir, ce soir, ce soir. Je vais rester reveille.
There is no extinguishing the resistance you betray.
The marquis, zapatista, white rose.
Can we see the end of a battle unheard?
For every name in history there are a thousand more interred.

And I can't believe my own eyes. I've seen this sight 100 times.
We will be sovereign in the water / in the shadow of the dead.
Still no one remembers them.
We will be free in the cold of the shadow of the dead.
Oh, you will remember then.

As I walk through the valley in the shadow of the dead, will you remember them?
