The Field of Grass and Fire, also known as the Pikemen's Song, is a song of the Younger Militias, sung regularly during marches and in camp, especially by the Young Adults. It originates in the 11th century, in a drinking song.

It is widely known in the Free Lands, to the point of being an evergreen and regularly sung on the stages of inns and in the SDF, who count this song as one of their more traditional songs.

Lyrics

We all are born free and like as we exist and we soldier on.
We'll take whatever comes to be while keeping cheery melodies
And we'll march through the darkness until the warmth of dawn.
So march, march, you bastards,
Through fields of Grass and Fire,
So march and holler, come, give it all you can,
Or the enemy, he will best us, we'll never see our land!
We carry on the pikes and we hide our grimace well,
For the day will come for us to march away,
But as long as we survive, our hope and pride they cant deprive
And we'll carry on with our melody to sing in harmony!
So march, march, you bastards,
Through fields of Grass and Fire,
So march and holler, come, give it all you can,
Or the enemy, he will best us, we'll never see our land!
We are knackered from the hardships,
Exhausted by the march, but we can still fight as one,
But even with our bloodied wrists we can fight our way through this
And we'll overpower the enemy, to keep our cities free!
So march, march, you bastards,
Through fields of Grass and Fire,
So march and holler, come, give it all you can,
Or the enemy, he will best us, we'll never see our land!
