    Lyrics

    As the daylight starts to fade -
    Twisting shadows all around.
    Dead soldiers on parade -
    The ghosts of Porton Down.

    Hidden from the public eye, "A cause for regret"
    Wrote the Brigadier-General with the chemistry set.
    "Can't be more specific - the matter's confidential,
    Links with other incidents are just coincidental."

    In jeopardy - welcome to the lion's den,
    We skate on thin ice - dice with death.
    While young boys drown in seas of poison -
    We are the plagiarists of breath.

    We go left right left right left -
    They're left in the right again.
    We go right left right left right -
    We've no rights left anymore.

    Military science picking the locks
    Of a 20th Century Pandora's box.

    A father tells a son,
    "The army makes a man of you."
    Now all vital signs are gone -
    Another joins the countless few.

    Mentioned in dispatches - they tell the same old story,
    'Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori,"
    They listened to him screaming -
    They sat and watched him writhe,
    Taking turns observing as his body burns alive.

    Rifles firing at the sky -
    As the "Last Post" starts to play.
    Young soldiers often die -
    And the truth gets filed away.

    Thomas Atkins (Private 20967),
    Now reports for duty -
    He's been posted up to heaven.
    Enlisted by conscription - a participant unwilling.
    Who didn't plan to give his life for taking the "King's Shilling".

    In jeopardy - welcome to the lion's den,
    We skate on thin ice - dice with death,
    While young boys drown in seas of poison -
    We are the plagiarists of breath.
