Onward We Will March

Onward We Will March

Deep into the trees
We will march
We will march
Deeper still we go
We will march
We will march
We will plunge into the forest
We will march
We will march

And when we’ve gotten lost
We will stop
We will stop
Oh yes when we’ve gone too far
We will stop
We will stop

But we will not turn around
No we will march
We will march
We will seek out wild places
We will march
We will march
We will visit places unexplored
We will march
We will march

And when we’ve seen enough
We will stop
We will stop
When we think we’ve seen it all
We will stop
We will stop

But we cannot now retreat
So we will march
We will march
There’s nothing for us back there now
So we will march
We will march
And onward we will go
So we will march
We will march
Until our bodies can march no more

And we will stop
It will stop
