Lyrics

Can you hear the War Cry?

It's time to enlist

The People speak as One

The Cattle; the Crowd


Those too afraid to live demand a Sacrifice

Of your life


Can you smell their stinking breath?

Listen to them wheezing and gasping and

Chanting their slogans


It's a gravedigger's song, praising God & State

So the Nation will live; so we all can remain as cattle


They demand a Sacrifice

Of your life


[Flipper's version]:


Can you hear the War Cry?

It's time to enlist

The People speak as One

The Cattle; the Crowd


Those too afraid to live demand a Sacrifice


Can you hear them wheezing?

Listen to them, chanting their slogans


It's a gravedigger's song, demanding a Sacrifice


Can you see the fresh blood steaming from the soil?

As our fathers and mothers

Our Patriots and lovers

Admire the Military style; Praising God and State

So the Nation can remain cattle; so the Nation will survive


And the demand is a Sacrifice


Can you hear the War Cry?

It's time to enlist

Those too afraid to live, living as cattle

The Masses speak as One - they demand a sacrifice
