The Latin One (拉美人) (LP版) - 10000 Maniacs (一万个疯子)

Bent double like old beggars in sacks

Knock kneed and cursing or coughing like hags

Men marched on sleeping some without boots

Fatigue drunken deaf still to the hoots

Of breaking gas shells


Dropping softly behind


But limped on blood shod


All went lame all went blind


Gas gas quick boys fumbling helmets in time

Someone still screaming a man in fire or lime

Under a Grey cloud dim dark through green light

In all my dreaming before my helpless sight

He plunges at me


Choking guttering drowning


Put in a wagon he had to keep pace


As his eyes melt to his face


If you could hear blood


Gurgling from ruptured lungs

If you could witness


Vile sores on innocent tongues

You would not tell me

Not with such pride and such zest

The lies of history


Dulce et decorum est

Pro patria mori


Some desperate glory


Pro patria mori


As witness disturbs the story


Pro patria mori


Stand firm boys breathe the glory
