This is a song that came from a poem I wrote about one soldiers thoughts . all be it my feelings . There was very little stories that came back from Trench life only the dying .Horrible and to think it still happens today .absolutely stupid humans

Standing here smoking my cigarette ,I look down at my boots sunken in the mud

The messenger says we must advance , A few more drags well I get the chance

Well I get the chance

They say there's a door way in the mist, When it opens rows of beds appears

A priest puts a cross on a soldiers lips , There doesn't seem to be many tears ,

oh my worse fears my worse fears

Dug out trenches soldiers hell , Bullets sounding mortar shell .

no one knows how many have fell on a carpet of khaki brown .

No one knows how many have fell no one knows you just cant tell

No you just cant tell .

I got a cigarette in my top pocket , Can someone light it up for me please , Thank you friend .

Will the door in the mist open now ,I think I saw a pretty nurse that last time I looked in

Before I go my friend could you tell me did we win did we win .

I can see your grin I can see your grin did we win did we win .................................

pretty special, a little bit uncanny and impressive

Hey Olly, it's hard to convey something like that vocally. A bit sad, but you did it well.
