about

Inspired by William Herrick’s book “Hermanos” on the Spanish civil war.

lyrics

Yeah we fight for – our brothers!
We take a group of wretched souls-
Make them fight for a better world.
Give them a reason and some girls - they’ll take on anyone.
They charged the Spanish hills-
Looking for some fascists to kill.
Yet they don’t understand – the blood already drowned this land.
And they chant:

We will fight for – our brothers.
We’re so tired of these borders.
Our lives for – the rights of others.
There’s a duality – behind these orders.

True ideals led astray-
Those who resist die anyway .
This is what the old man said-
Before he took the bullet:
“A man lives like a beast – he will become a beast”
“A man lives like a beast – he will become a beast”

And they chant – for their brothers.
We’re so tired of these borders.
No victories – more slaughter.
No morality – behind these orders!
