The Lyrics

This one is based on what IMHO is one of the Top 10 NWOBHM songs, very atmospheric and most definitely not an average heavy metal track, I can only hope that this my "non-funny parody" does it justice lyricswise).
They came to ad for Marlboro and their cig'rettes
Young men with their packs
They died with failin' lungs in their country
A bunch of faded heroes, coughing hacks

Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
The smokin' heroes

Gave a damn, a package makes a man hard
They said you've got to roll another bong
Temptation full of snags and cruel leukemia
And X-rays with meta-stases in lungs

Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
The smokin' heroes
The smokin' heroes
The smokin' heroes
The smokin' heroes
The smokin' heroes
The smokin' heroes

Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
The smokin' heroes

Their pipes recalled the days when they were steadfast
The lawyers they said they bled from asbestos
They bode a death toll tally, hither wondered
Tobacco leaf slaves die, on exhale

Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?

Those smokin' heroes

Those manly heroes

Those cowboy heroes

Those Marlb'ro heroes

Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?
Where are they now?

What? but the tobacco companies say there's no link between tobacco and ill health - now I'm confused....
