Hear them whisper
Voices from the other side
Hear them calling
From friends and foes resting side by side

They will never
Leave our hearts or fade away
Live forever
They were far too young to die
Such a waste

How many wasted lives
How many dreams did fade away
Broken promises
They won't be coming home


Oh mothers wipe your tears
Your sons will rest a million years
Found their peace at last
As foe turned to friend
And forgive

And they knew they'd die
Gallipoli
Left the letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Gallipoli
Dreams of freedom turned to dust

Hell is waiting where the ocean meets the sand
Cliffs of burden
Where the soldiers crushed into a certain death

At the shoreline
Blood of heroes stains the land
Light a candle
For each of them who fought and died in vain

There is no enemy
There is no victory
Only boys who lost their lives in the sand
Young men were sacrificed
Their names are carved in stone in candle light
And forever we will honour the memory of then

And they knew they'd die
Gallipoli
Left the letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Gallipoli
Dreams of freedom turned to dust

Oh mothers wipe your tears
Your sons will rest a million years
Found their peace at last
As foe turned to friend
And forgive

And they knew they would die
Gallipoli
Left the letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Gallipoli
Dreams of freedom turned to dust

    We should honour the men who lost their live to save the freedom of other people so they wont be for gottain cause when you forget the men and weman who died while serving there nation then and only then did they die in vain. Sabaton is the vocie of all the men and weman who died in battle they keep alive through music, they do what most musictions including myself are to scared to do, but they make it work so next time you listen to sabaton think of all they fallen soldiers.
