Lyrics

  No mercy for what we're doing
  No thought to even what we've done
  We don't need to feel the sorrow
  No remorse for the helpless one
  
          War without end
          No remorse, no repent
          We don't care what it meant
          Another day, another death
          Another sorrow, another breath
          No remorse, no repent
          We don't care what it meant
          Another day, another death
          Another sorrow, another breath
  
  Blood feeds the war machine
  As it eats its way across the land
  We don't need to feel the sorrow
  No remorse is the one command
  
          War without end
          No remorse, no repent
          We don't care what it meant
          Another day, another death
          Another sorrow, another breath
          No remorse, no repent
          We don't care what it meant
          Another day, another death
          Another sorrow, another breath
  
  Only the strong survive
  No will to save the weaker race
  We are ready to kill all comers
  Like a loaded gun right at your face
  
          War without end
          No remorse, no repent
          We don't care what it meant
          Another day, another death
          Another sorrow, another breath
          No remorse, no repent
          We don't care what it meant
          Another day, another death
          Another sorrow, another breath
  
  Attack
  
  Bullets are flying
  People are dying
  With madness surrounding
  All hell's breaking loose
  
  Soldiers are hounding
  Bodies are mounting
  Cannons are shouting to take their abuse
  
  With war machines going
  Blood starts to flowing
  No mercy given to anyone here
  
  The furious fighting
  Swords are like lightning
  It all becomes frightening
  You know death is near
  
  No remorse
