The Battle of Gallipoli took place mere miles from the site of the ancient city of Troy, set of Homer's 'Iliad'.


Faces down, eyes to front
you'll get what you need boys
You'll get what you want
fingers hard on biting steel
to the power you appeal

Summer rain gonna set you free
bury the ashes under the sea
and the dawn will break across your skin
And wash away your sin

hearts of burning leather
up the road together
say your prayers, sing your lullabies
their day isn't won yet
we'll make it up by sunset
and all our gladness we will spill

but cast your eyes about the shore
doesn't it feel like you've been here before
Achilles rage, Helen's shame
she's whispering your name

hearts of burning leather
up the road together
let's away, let's do it all again
don't you look around you
at the fire that surrounds you
as the wheel keeps turning ever still

but think back I implore you,
what was the ship that bore you?
Agammemnon was her name
the bullet's premonition
your final recognition
that there's nothing here but Zeus' will
at the top of the hill
