Defeater - December 1943 Lyrics




I can't remember (Remember)
Each time it slipped right through my fingers
The eyes and faces of my brothers (My brothers)
They never made it back home to their mothers

And all I remember (Remember)
Of 1943 December
Me and Sullivan behind the line, we gathered (We gathered)
[?] to hold the match to the fire
The smoke lead the way back to [?]

My disbelief in what we built for me
Bogged down with no warning, no hope
No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me

No hands to hold, no hands to pray
No hands to hold, no hands to pray
No hands to hold, no hands to pray
No hands to hold

And I remember
The prayers my mother's mother taught her
And no, I don't believe her
I'd be dead with my fellow men and the preacher

No hands to pray

If I should die before, before I wake
I pray the lord for my soul, my soul to take

No hands to hold, no hands to pray
No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me
No hands to fold, no hands to pray
No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me
No hands to fold, no hands to pray
No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me

    I can't remember (Remember)
    Each time it slipped right through my fingers
    The eyes and faces of my brothers (My brothers)
    They never made it back home to their mothers

    And all I remember (Remember)
    Of 1943 December
    Is Sullivan and I behind the line
    We gather the flock to hold a mass with the father
    And the smoke lead the way back to death and flames

    My disbelief in what laid before me
    Bombed out with no warning, no hope
    No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me

    No hands to hold, no hands to pray
    No hands to hold, no hands to pray
    No hands to hold, no hands to pray
    No hands to hold

    And I remember
    The prayers my mother's mother taught her
    And though I'm no believer
    I'd be dead with my fellow men if not for the preacher

    No hands to pray

    If I should die before, before I wake
    I pray the lord for my soul, my soul to take

    No hands to hold, no hands to pray
    No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me
    No hands to fold, no hands to pray
    No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me
    No hands to fold, no hands to pray
    No hands to hold, no hands to pray for me
