Evacuating the colonists
Resenting all of our common sense
Marching from their homes to safer ground
Hoping for some help before we're found
Looking for heroes, what do we get?
Thirty soldiers you wouldn't forget
Amy, the commander, leading us
Hope she doesn't lose all of our trust
The rain pouring down; heavy and cold
Red mud on our boots, armour and clothes
Threats giving chase better watch our backs
Don't get caught in their shard attacks
In the end the colonists are safe
Saved them all thanks to the navy's strafe
Two soldiers return from this ordeal
Amy lost her arm, she still can feel
