The scent of Thyme carried on the wind
Stings your face into remembering
Cruel nature has won again

On Battleship Hill's caved in trenches
A hateful feeling still lingers
Even now, 80 years later
Cruel nature
Cruel, cruel nature

The land returns to how it has always been
The scent of Thyme carried on the wind
Jagged mountains, jutting out
Cracked like teeth in a rotten mouth
On Battleship Hill I hear the wind
Say "Cruel nature has won again"
