All money raised will go directly to the Refugee Survival Trust, Edinburgh ( The RST was set up in 1996 as a reaction to the problem of refugees and asylum claimants being made destitute in Scotland. Grants made by the RST either alleviate poverty and destitution, or help refugees and asylum claimants to overcome obstacles in accessing educational and employment opportunities. Their work is as vital today as it has ever been.

Track Name: Four Hours (Paper Rifles)
Four hours gone
We're not the only ones
Who crave the kick of white hot lead
To lay the bastards down
Under a reddening sun

We justify the oldest crimes through orders passed on down the line

Four years on
The iron of my youth is gone
My limbs shake in imitation of
The fear and hate we sowed
Under that reddening sun

The night hours cannot bring relief to those who live in fear of sleep

If I die in a combat zone
Box me up and ship me home
Pin my medals to my chest
Tell my girl I did my best
I asked no questions and bought a lie
And when all this is over I will sing my heart out
