I'll come back later if you want to give me a replay in this game. bye bye love , be happy among men. I try to do the same
Track Name: white soldier
the exhausted soldiers, sleepless for 5 or 6 days at a time, Always hungry for a decent meal, suffering from the tropical infections, keep fighting for white.
right now if they are watching me they've got to make up their minds whether I know they are here..and will pass by... I know they are here. But where did they come from? not the sea, W''ve had our eyes glued to it. Wher did the come from ? not the air. We know there ain't an airfield here. Where did they come from?
white soldier in the corner, white soldier in the corner
Track Name: money for pleasure

Track Name: dress grey
change black into grey,
change grey into white
my livingroom is living, it's all black and black,

change grey into white
the danger is approaching,
act normal dress grey,
the new aristocrats say
act normal dress grey
