Black Sabbath – Glory Ride lyrics

Winged with steel they fill the air
The soldiers of fortune will ride
In the sights of the enemy's gun
Those who've taken their oaths tonight
Are well prepared they know they'll
Do or die even if it's suicide

Let's take a chance
As the skies will burn tonite
Wasted lives and spirits run free
On the wings of no return

Dressed to kill where eagles dare
The fate of a nation's at hand
Is this the answer to the prayers
Come the dawn, thru the blood
Red skies return with tears
In their eyes, and they
Recall thou shalt not kill

And in the morning
They'll take a hero's bow
And make the everlasting flight

Hear them calling up above all
Across the skies
Hear them calling up above from
The other side

Here them call!

Let's take a chance
As the skies will burn tonite
Wasted lives and spirits run free
On the wings of no return

Let's take a chance
As the skies will burn tonite
Wasted lives and spirits run free
On the wings of no return

    This song refers to the probably last battle of an army, they know there may be no return but their duty make them fight with all their energy. Maybe those soldiers have family, and they know what would happen to them (their families) if their enemies win and advance through their homeland, so they will fight until death for their nation.
