The Riverbed Written by Sivert Høyem & Maja Lindqvist

How it falls in the field down among us
Falls on the king and his men on the riverbed
Now we meet after all these years

Do you my king, do you remember me
Yeah, I see your face before me now
And I'm telling you tonight that I know we belong
Beyond this life
The war has taken its turn and it ain't never turning back

I grew to be a man
A man who grew to be a king
Got a job at the mill
And when the war came
I signed up for you

Every day, now
I send a letter to the people back home
Oh, I bet you long for the life that you led
Me and myself, I got nothing to lose but this war
And I'm telling you the war that I fought
It was wrong
And we must die
Well now the shells are hammering down on the riverbed

Drums roll
And we must go
We must go, the enemy is upon us
Rise from your knee
And now, pull to the bridge

Oh, brother don't turn, 'cause I'm right behind you now
Go on, go on, on up from the riverbed
For I'm telling you, the war that I fought
It was wrong
And we must die
It doesn't matter much now anyway, tonight we unite

And when we're pushing through
I turn around one last time
And through the fire and the rain
I see the king's white flag
The king lives on
But everyone
Everybody dies
