about

Two sides of a story. A soldier realizing he's been lied to and isn't really a good guy, and the liar who started the war.

lyrics

The scent of yesterday still lingers on this blood-soaked morning
I sweep my gaze across these killing fields against the sunlit dawn
I hold back tears as I contemplace this useless slaughter
I hold back vomit as I remember the things that I've done

The lies that came to me with orders
That I blindly followed
Did I even think to question them?
No.
The death I spoke with my blade and shield
Did they ever deserve it
Could it be? Was it me?
Who had it wrong

The scent of yesterday still lingers on this blood-soaked morning
I sweep my gaze across these killing fields against the sunlit dawn
The fields once green now turned a crimson river thick with bodies
I bathe in glory as I remember the things that I've done

The lies I told to bring this battle
And a the fools who believed in me
I played both sides
And they never suspected
Now the spoils
Belong to me
