Where is the voice that left me behind?

In a darkened room, at the window

Where is the girl who led me to shore?

Eyes to the sea, knocking at my door

There is tomorrow, head on my pillow

Breath in my arms, voice in my ear

Where is the treasure I buried upstream?

Left on a map from a midnight dream

Come on take me to war

Take me to war
I’m ready for invasion

Take me to shore

Need no persuasion

Then I hear that hollow voice

Throat is thirsty, head like straw

Won’t you sway, sway, sway in the wind now

Looking out to the sea

We’ll defend this field for a thousand years

Come on take me to war

Take me to war
I’m ready for invasion

Take me to shore

Need no persuasion at all

Watch the sun sinking down, down

Watch it melt in the water

Now tell me who’s that girl who holds the fire?

Throat is rusted, rusted

Smell the distant smoke

The flames are warm, but the night will be cold

Come on take me to war

Take me to war

I’m ready for invasion

Take me to shore

Need no persuasion

Take me to war

Take me to war

I’m ready for invasion

Take me to shore

I need no persuasion

Take me to war

Take me to war

Take me to war

Take me to shore

Take me to shore

Take me to shore
