Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Christmas In No Man's Land

This song was created for Game of Bands round 35 : "Make a Christmas song to be used for the charity album."

Lyrics:

Playing cards for cigarettes
Drinking until there's no more
Dancing on the barren fields
Where our brothers died
Just the day before

Whistling tunes instead of shells
As we sing into the night
Trading presents with the men
We'll be trading fire with
Another fight

Will we be slaves to our calling
Once the day is done
Hope won't stop the shells from falling
When tomorrow comes
When tomorrow comes

Building barbed wire Christmas trees
Now that only metal blooms
On this once green battlefield
Turned to brown and red
All too bloody soon

So we line up in the mud
Make a different kind of stand
Knowing we made something last
To outlive us all
Here in no man's land

Will we be slaves to our calling
Once the day is done
Hope won't stop the shells from falling
When tomorrow comes
When tomorrow comes
When tomorrow comes...
[Exit]
