flag

flag 1

my flag is flying
blood red
beneath the sky

straight and tall
it
rises

my flag will wave
still
when all war has passed me by

my flag
so straight and tall
still rising

flag 2

battles won and battles lost
who can say who won

I ride into battle with my flag

a pennant and my horse in front
it is I who leads them on

my pennant held before me
my flag …

 

flag 3

 

… is flying
blood red

blood red
beneath the sky
