Il testo รจ ripreso da questa pagina tedesca.
This song is for all the violent dead
Who know eternal peace
United Forever for all the families
Who grieve the slaughtered fleece.

Ulsterman rise from your knees and
Feel this peaceful breeze
Hope uniting hearts and minds with
Forgiving Irish ease.

Weep no more the violent dead
Lay flowered prayer on eternal beds
Inhale this peace into your lungs
No more bullets no more guns.

And your breath will fall upon Ireland
And you will know that breath of peace
Is yours.

Death comes to us all like
A bullet to the head.
Life come to us all with
The aftertaste of lead.

So take take that hatred from your heart
And recognise your brother and your father
That that bitterness from your throat
And spit it to the gutter,

Knowing that you have cut down
innocent sons and daughters
Then your filth will filter through
Polluted Irish waters,

And your breath will fall upon Ireland
And you will know that breath of peace
Is yours.
