blue falls red

bagpipes play that march again

the dirge these brothers dread

honoring a life cut short

each time the blue falls red

 

yet another funeral

and countless tears are shed

for heroes felled by cowards

in flight from lives they’ve led

 

society is wounded

through he who dies instead

as the cause of anarchy

is in these horrors pled

 

freedom is a fragile thing

in peace its roots are fed

but it would wither quickly

were all our heroes dead

 

so as you say your prayers tonight

for all those who have bled

include a prayer for all of us

that no more blue falls red
