Shadows lengthening
95 steps I'm taking
With every step I'm longing
For the luck to keep on living

The drum calls me back again
To my senses
Filled with shame

I wish this night
Would never end
And on no-man's land
The sun would not rise again

There was laughing, and I could not laugh
There was singing, and I could not sing
The big guns called me back again

I hear voices singing
I hear the guns beginning
Far off, far away
I hear the guns again
