We fought your fight and we died in droves
In a rear guard action with no reward
We spilled our guts to cover your butts
Spending ships and lives we could ill afford.
And now earth side says "We can't win"
Hell we could have won if we'd gotten support
Now they say: "Pull back", they say: "Pull out"
They say "The war is over; mission abort".
It was our blood spilled on the stars
Did you think that you could deal it away?
We hear your calling us pirates now
Then screw you all, we'll earn the motherless name.
