Corb Lund - A Leader On Losing Control Lyrics

  • And I appealed to their decency show mercy on this day
  • I issued them strong orders on pain of death and disarray
  • But in the end they would not listen and raised their lances anyway
  • Men of no account they were, their breeding crude and low
  • With not a trace of wisdom, Grace or virtue in their souls
  • Yet trained them long and hard I did to bend them to the crown
  • To act as tools of justice, follow edict handed down
  • You see these were not militia men, a-fighting for their homes
  • Nor fathers, sons nor husbands, sire, but foreigners on loan
  • Mercenary killers, career soldiers to a man
  • Lashing out with vengeance one cannot accept or understand
  • I could not instill the discipline 'twas duty to inspire
  • And they responded in the end to instincts of the basest kind
  • Now on my knee before you here, I drop my eyes in shame
  • Albeit little consolation take my head for I'm to blame
  • O, so spoke the leader on losing control
