Radiohead: Harry Patch (In memory of)

I saw this story on the BBC News website via Facebook (H/T: KMD) and thought it was perfect to share here on PhilosFX this Veteran's Day

Listen to Radiohead's song using the words of WWI veteran Harry Patch. Patch, the "Last Fighting Tommy," was interviewed in 2005. He passed away 4 years later at the age of 111 years and 38 days, and was laid to rest August 6, 2009.

I am the only one that got through 
The others died where ever they fell 
It was an ambush 
They came up from all sides 
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves 
I've seen devils coming up from the ground 
I've seen hell upon this earth 
The next will be chemical but they will never learn
