<b>Intro:</b>
We ran like dogs.
There rifles took us to the brink of death.
We were cut down, and left to die.

<b>Verse 1:</b>
Screaming soldiers,
yelling comrades,
beaten friends,
the time has come to meet our maker.

<b>pre-chorus:</b>
Flashing rounds, with bursts of screams.
We run on through
Friends and family won't help us rally
Guns and ammo are our only allies

<b>Chrous:</b>
The smell of death is all around.
Mangled corpses, and dead men.
The power to be, the power to kill!
Mangled friends, and dead buddies

<b>Bridge:</b>
Take us to the end,
We won't be back to fight again.
For the land,
for the queen,
onwards we'll roam.

<b>Verse 2:</b>
Bullets graze,
Eyes are glazed.
Got the enemy in my sights
This will be his last night...

<b>pre-chorus:</b>
Flashing rounds, with bursts of screams.
We run on through
Friends and family won't help us rally
Guns and ammo, our only allies

<b>Chrous:</b>
The smell of death is all around.
Mangled corpses, and dead men fill the scene
The battle cries of our soldies
our mangled friends, and enemies lay lifeless

<b>Outro:</b>
We'll fight to the end
We won't be back to fight again.
For the land,
for the queen,
for my family,
onwards we will roam
will anyone hear our parting groans...?

Crits and comments please.

I'm not sure myself how I'd like it to sound, I'll have to sit down and write some basslines for it someday.

I'd like to be like this:
Open's up with a strong, but very melodic guitar riff. It leads on in, then the singer starts to sing. Not screaming, or moaning, but singing. Then a solo near the outro and the outro sung with great enthusiasm.

Nah, I only have a bass guitar anyways. But I plan to make my room into a mini-studio once I can get the money.

Well I don't listen to rap, so that'd be why. I listen to stuff like tool and Iron Maiden, and they just don't ryhme much.

well, if your listening to iron maiden, they do have basic rythm..ive edited your lyrics to have a basic beat and rythm D:

___________________
Intro: (spoken, as if it was a radio conversation)

We..we ran like dogs
muzzle flashes illuminated the dark sky above, brothers falling all about..
i turned to gaze at my enemy, to let my hatred be known.
but had there reply blown through my head..

(lead guitarist breaks in with starting verse)

Verse 1:
Screaming soldiers,
slaughtered brothers,
beaten friends,
the time is now, to meet our ends.

Flashing rounds, the impacts sound,
We trudge on through, brisk the rain,
Guns and ammo, ease our pain

The smell of death is all around.
pain and suffering, simple sounds.
The power to be, the power to kill!
simple things only on our will.

Take us now to the end,
We won't be back to fight again.
For our land,
for our queen,
the final things we never see.

bullets sound within the night
comrades faces stare with fright
we have the enemy within our sight
may this round turn things right

Flashing rounds, the impacts sound,
We trudge on through, brisk the rain,
Guns and ammo will ease our pain.

The smell of death is all around.
pain and suffering, simple sounds.
The battle cries of my young friends
are never heard, its only there ends

Take us now, through the night,
We won't be back to fight again.
For our life,
for our friends,
they be with us to the end.
