Edofasian War Ballads WIP
#1
Out from many a mud walled cabin eyes were watching through the night
Many a manly heart was beating for the blessed morning's light
Murmurs ran along the valley to the banshee's lonely croon
And a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon

By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon
And a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon
All along that singing river, that black mass of men was seen
High above their shining weapons flew their own beloved green

Death to every foe and traitor, whistle out the marching tune
And hoorah me boys for freedom 'tis the rising of the moon
'Tis the rising of the moon, 'tis the rising of the moon
And hoorah me boys for freedom 'tis the rising of the moon



Written sometime between 1785 and 1830 Rising of The Moon was written as a firsthand account of one of the many uprisings against Candanadian rule. It is disputed which particular battle the song describes but the song rose to popularity during the War of Unification when it was song by E.N.A forces organizing the assualt on Thüle (whether or not the song Men of Thüle was written to directly counter this song is also debated)
 
Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man will stand behind
The Men Behind the Wire


Through the little streets of Tara
In the dark of early morn
Kaltach soldiers came marauding
Wrecking little homes with scorn.


Heedless of the crying children
Dragging fathers from their beds
Beating sons while helpless mothers
Watched the blood flow from their heads


Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man will stand behind
The Men Behind the Wire


Not for them a judge or jury
Or indeed a crime at all
Being Terran means they're guilty
So we're guilty one and all


Round the world the truth will echo
Der Konigs men are here again
Kaltachia's name again is sullied
In the eyes of honest men


Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man will stand behind
The Men Behind the Wire


Proudly march behind our banners
Firmly stand behind our men
We will have them free to help us
Build a Nation once again


On the people stand together
Proudly firmly on your way
Never fear, and never falter
Till the boys are home to stay

Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man will stand behind
The Men Behind the Wire


The Men Behind the Wire was written during the height of Candanadian Occupation of Edofasia. Shortly before the formation of the Edofasian Free State (West Edofasia) in 1916. At this time the Candanadians were feeling apprehensive as it seemed Edofasian rebellions were becoming more amd more frequent and organized. Leading to them cracking down on any expected insurgents 

Another head hangs lowly

Child is slowly taken

And the violence caused such silence

Who are we mistaken



But you see it's not me

It's not my family

In your head, in your head

They are fighting

With their tanks and their bombs

And their bombs and their guns

In your head, in your head

They are cryin'



Whats in your head? In your head?

Zombie, zombie, zombie, hey, hey

What's in your head, in your head

Zombie, zombie, zombie, hey, hey, hey, oh





Another mother's breakin'

Heart is taking over

When the violence causes silence

We must be mistaken



It's the same old theme

Since nineteen-sixteen

In your head, in your head

They're still fightin'

With their tanks and their bombs

And their bombs and their guns

In your head, in your head

They are dyin'



In your head, in your head

Zombie, zombie, zombie, hey, hey

What's in your head, in your head

Zombie, zombie, zombie, hey, hey, hey

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Hey, oh, ya, ya-a

Zombie is a modern anti war song written after the annexation of Lakedan. Many feared the KU would respond militarily and start another war
