(Sung to the tune of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" and blatantly ripped off of the lyrics to "Blood Upon the Risers". Dedicated to Junkman and Roland.)

As sung by the CEF United GREL Choir

They hovered on the battlefield, their confidence was high.
They ignored the nasty rumors 'bout how their tanker friends had died.
But when they saw the enemy they got an awful shock.
And they ain't gonna fight no more...

The rolling gears had left and landed right atop the hulls,
the shriek of metal rending bounced around within their skulls.
And suddenly their cockpit with a muzzle was quite full,
And they ain't gonna fight no more...

The gun went "Rat-a-tat-tat" and the cockpit filled with lead,
The pilot took a gut wound and his soul was filled with dread,
He knew without a doubt that they would soon all be quite dead,
And they weren't gonna fight no more.

The hovertanks grounded out as the blood began to flow,
The warriors cared less now as their corpses grew quite cold,
The cockpits of their tanks now served as tombs for the Earth's bold
And they ain't gonna fight no more.

Gory, gory, what a helluva way to die:
Those morons didn't listen now their corpses out there lie.
Gory, gory, what a helluva way to die,
and they ain't gonna fight no more.
