The Cape Laddermen

I am at the end of the line and my fate is certain.

I have fought the battle with the flames only to see them enraged

My duty was clear and my fate is left to the hand of god.

As I enter the fire to save some life I have met my match and will give my life

God has called for me to fight the never-ending blaze

I am but a single person full of life

And I have a family and a good life

My time was not determined until this day

I went into the fire to save a life as I would do again

Today I gave my life for everyone who may be inside

Today I went in a firefighter and came out a hero

Today I fought the final blaze and now I am at the side of god fighting the fires with everyone

Today we all fight together again
