    Lyrics

    "Throw your soldiers into positions once there is no escape,
    and they will prefer death to flight."

    Hear the sound of a machine gun
    Hear it echo in the night
    Mortars firing rains the scene
    Scars the fields that once were green

    It's a stalemate at the front line
    Where the soldiers rest in mud
    Roads and houses all is gone
    There's no glory to be won

    Know that many men will suffer
    Know that many men will die
    Half a million lives at stake at the fields of Passchendaele

    And as night falls the general calls and the battle carries on and on
    What is the purpose of it all
    What's the price of a mile

    Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army on the march
    Long way from home paying the price in young men's lives
    Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army in despair
    Knee-deep in mud stuck in a trench with no way out

    Thousands of machine guns
    Kept on firing through the night
    Mortars blazed and wrecked the scene
    Guns the fields that once were green

    Still a deadlock at the front line
    Where the soldiers died in mud
    Roads and houses since long gone
    Still no glory has been won

    Know that many men has suffered
    Know that many men has died
    Six miles of ground has been won half a million men are gone

    And as the men crawled the general called and the killing carry on and on
    What was the purpose of it all
    What's the price of a mile

    Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army on the march
    Long way from home paying the price in young men's lives
    Thousands of feat march to the beat it's an army in despair
    Knee-deep in mud stuck in a trench with no way out

    Young men are dying
    They pay the price
    Oh how they suffer
    So tell me what's the price of a mile

    That's the price of a mile

    Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army on the march
    Long way from home paying the price in young men's lives
    Thousands of feet march to the beat it's an army in despair
    Knee-deep in mud stuck in a trench with no way out [X5]
