Lyrics

Orange blossom boys, they joined the regiment
Six-tonne heavy and their fate was set
Rolled the crooked dice for the lives they bet
Wild cards stolen from a loaded deck
You can work the mine or you can fire the gun
Stone-set choices for the chosen ones
But men will break when all the medals are won
Seven samurai, midday sun

We will mark our face above the suns of home
Pulling seven swords out of seven stones

Seven swords will bear our name again
Seven swords will dance in flame again

In the wasteland deep down in the heart of hell
Sand soaked scarlet where the seven fell
And the crooked dice, they never rolled so well
Seven samurai, toll their bell
From the wretched sky comes a glowing rain
Soil burned barren 'til we meet again

We will mark our face above the suns of home
Pulling seven swords out of seven stones

Seven swords will bear our name again
Seven swords will dance in flame again
And cut through the darkness
