There's a new soldier fighting
In the West today
Press-ganged from the cradle
To live as a slave

They gave him his banner
It says, 'Long live the past'

Long live the past
Long live the past
Long live the past
Long live the past
Long live the past

Today I left for the crusades
With Christ's cross and the ten-horned star
We, about to die, salute you
Our programme is complete

Was it for murder
Or for mercy?

Long live the past
Long live the past
Long live the past
Long live the past
Long live the past

Let it live on ...

Was it for murder
Or for mercy?
Was it for murder
Or for mercy?

Was it for murder
Or mercy?
