about

"Peace Without Victory" is our fourth annual free track release to mark the events of 100 years ago. 1917 was a pivotal year in World War 1: The Russian revolution, Submarine warfare, America's entry to the war and the notorius and devastating Third Battle of Ypres which culminated in the battle of Passchendaele (the tiny village who's name came to symbolise the true horror of industrialised trench warfare). All this contributed to a world wide 'war-weariness' and calls for 'peace at any cost'.

lyrics

Here again how much more can we take?
Another year gone by
Day on day until the other breaks
Steel engulfs this sky

Higher ground in a dying sea of mud
Our brothers fell in waves
Few remain who'd understand this hell
Murdered hope and faiths

Set my place and pull out my chair for me
Though I won't be home
Remember a place in our history
And set it in stone

From The Pilkem Ridge to The Menin Road
Facing Passchendaele
Herding lambs to feed the guns
The final coffin nail

Set my place and pull out my chair for me
Though I won't be home
I'll imagine a peace without victory
That seed has been sewn

Set my place and pull out my chair for me
Though I won't be home
