Sacred Gate

Never To Return

A last cup of wine
A final embrace
In the shades of parnon
Yet it's not daybreak
In tearless silence
They watch us go
The pain of their hearts
Only the gods know

Mothers and sisters,
Daughter and wives
How many times
Have you stood here?
Watching those you love
Marching out to war
Departing to their deaths,
Never to return

Nothing a good in life
Comes without a price
And we have learned
To breathe the air of liberty
Freedom we have chosen
And now we'll fight for it
What our fathers did,
We can do no less
These were the last
Words of farewell
Come back with your shield
Or come back on it
