This song is by Adolescents and appears on the album Brats In Battalions (1987). Blood so deep the horse must hold his head up highIn the valley of decision third of the world will dieBeat your hoes and plows into axes and spearsAs the armys meet in a battle they predict for years. Let the weak say I'm a warriorBring down the warriorsLet the faithless regain faithYour faith is hopeless.
