"Fairmount Hill" from their last album is another one. To those who have lived in Boston, it can bring nostalgic tears to their eyes.
"Broken Hymns" is about deceased soldiers in the Civil War returning home to be buried.
"1953" is about the main character proposing to his soon-to-be-wife.
The lyrics of "The Last Letter Home" from Warrior's Code consist of letters exchanged between a solider in Iraq and his family. The last letter is a Death Notification.
"Vices and Virtues", a song about four brothers and how they met their ends, is one. Particularly the line, "And another died by a bullet at the hands of a sniper's gun/In the valley of Nha-Trang for a war we never won."
"Fields of Athenry" — with the pure emotion in the singer's voice, the anger and desperation, then the bagpipes kick in... The subject matter, the anthem-esque tone of the music, and the sorrowfulness of the narrator all makes it work.
