At a point below zero
There's no place left to go
Six hundred unknown heroes
Were killed like sleeping buffalo

Through the devil's canyon,

Across the battlefield
Death has no companion,
The spirit's lost

There goes the bandolero

Through the hole in the wire
He's a coward but he doesn't care,
Doesn't care if he lives or if he dies

The general that's commanding,

He's defending what he fears
While the troops they are depending
On reinforcements from the rear

(1:52-Solo: Adrian Smith)

If God is in his heaven

How come there's no heaven here?
In God's name they use weapons
For the massacre

At a point below zero

Where the sun can see the land
Six hundred unknown heroes
Lay dead beneath the sand
