the missing verses

*On the fight, for they are right, yes, by who's to say?
*Suffered wounds test there their pride
Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
Gone insane from the pain that they surely know

This is about the laziest tab i've ever seen.

Most chord tabs at least include the lyrics.

Fail.
