lyrics

Into the Fray

Red dawn rose up across the break of day.
We marched into the fray.

Holman called the line to halt, we heard the shot
to warn of the coming onslaught.

On point, was the first man I saw to fall.
What was his name now? I can’t recall.
Memories of horror I could not conceive.
It comes alive at night in my dreams.

Chris joined the Corps, at the age of nineteen,
With a wife and daughter, a new family.

The light faded from his eyes.
I held his hand as he died.
I lifted him up, over my pack;
a promise, kept, “We’re going back.”
“No man left behind,”
My brothers, dead or alive.
I stand with you, we proud few.

Bonded in blood,
At the breaking of dawn.
Into the fray,
We brothers march on.

Step and advance to sweep and clear.
Under fire from the front and rear.
The first man across took one in the chest.
He waved us away, “Save the rest.”
In the blood-drenched field, mortars rained shells,
In eight hours of living hell.
Battered and broken, badly out gunned;
The artillery blots out the sun.

For the good and the right, press on through the fight,
We’re coming home.
Bleeding, desperate, scarred.
Into hell we charge.
Stand and defy, march lest you die,
Fear not, guide your brother’s on.
“No man left behind,”
My brothers, dead or alive.
I stand with you, we proud few.

Bonded in blood
At the breaking of dawn.
Into the fray,
We brothers march on.

Bonded in blood
At the breaking of dawn.
Into the fray,
We brothers march on.

I sit at home as years pass by,
Asking God why I came home alive.
Seeing friends faces, hearing their cries.
Those who have sacrificed
That I might live my life.

about

DEADIRON Cleveland, Ohio

Born on the storm-battered industrial-wasteland of Lake Erie’s shores, Cleveland metal titans Deadiron find themselves on the precipice of change. Dire economic conditions, line-up changes, and a political climate rife with tension have torn apart many a band, but those elements only forged members of Deadiron into a unit bound and determined for musical domination. ... more
