Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Our mother always used to sing our praises from the rooftops
Although we caused her trouble, you and I were thick as thieves
You fought your demons and deserved to have succeeded further
But you slipped and fell my little Kabaneri girl

Your will was stronger than any of all my powers
Your voice of reason, like a soothing stream beside my bed
When I was terrified you'd talk to me for hours
I wanna hear your voice now

What would you say?
Move on, cause I'm gone
Now you're talking to a shadow
Look there! People so scared
Hit your mark with every last arrow
Be here, ready your spear
The path you have got to follow
Is more deadly each year
Their sins were paid in blood so go!
Woh oo oh oo oo oo oh
The sins of all our fathers
Woh oo oh oo oo oo oh
We've paid enough in battle
Woh oo oh oo oo oo oh
This is your chance for freedom!
Lots of love your next of kin

You always had my back when everything around turned scary
Words never said to you ah damn my over bloated pride!
You were the best of all the best that any world could show me
Now we fight a war, forever you will be inside

You showed me strength that I had never seen before
It lit fire under me; I seek to quote the words you said
When I was terrified you'd talk to me for hours
I listen to your voice now

What would you say?
Move on, cause I'm gone
Now you're talking to a shadow
Look there! People so scared
Hit your mark with every last arrow
Be here, ready your spear
The path you've got to follow
Is more deadly each year

What would you say?
Move on, cause I'm gone
Now you're talking to a shadow
Look there! People so scared
Hit your mark with every last arrow
Be here, ready your spear
The path you have got to follow
Is more deadly each year
Their sins were paid in blood so go!
Woh oo oh oo oo oo oh
The sins of all our fathers
Woh oo oh oo oo oo oh
We've paid enough in battle
Woh oo oh oo oo oo oh
This is your chance for freedom!
Lots of love, your next of kin
