"Fields" was written in 2007 for a Remembrance Day concert in Canada's capital. The Mod Villains, with Myke Mazzei leading, premiered the tune half-rehearsed and still killed it (in a good way!). It has become a fan favourite largely due to its opening riff.


(Am - C - F - F)

Out in the fields of war
We went looking for something more
What we found shook us down to the core
Out in the fields of war

You can't touch and walk away
It hits you each and every day
Let's take them from the air and get out of the way
Leave them lying there, no more to say

I've seen the smoke turn the sky from blue to black
Like a bruise you can cover it up, but you can't take it back
Close your eyes and let the wind be at your back
Blow you further down the rails on a one-way track

Every dog has its day
Every ocean has its waves
Every soldier has his stay
Every dead man has his grave
Take me back to where I'm from
Show me peace and give me love
Guide my hands and guard my heart from all I've done
Save a space for my brothers and me above

Out in the fields of war
We went looking for something more
Out in the fields... out in the fields...
Out in the fields of war.
