    I could never make out the line at 5:00...



    My best guess is "doing your time and those on the rank" although it sounds like he's saying something that starts with an "M" for the last word when he does it live.

    I know what you mean about not coming though clear. Actual lyrics are,

    For those of you, who know what it takes
    Those in the tent we salute you

    I always thought it was something like:

    For those that give
    For those that take
    Dirty and High…
    Soldiers of the night!

    For those who take
    Those left high
    And those on the make

    Brian's obviously talking about who's picking up the steak house bill, with a warning:

    For those who give
    for those who take
    Every time
    I'll go medium rare

    Could be;

    For those who give

    I tried listening to a few live versions but it’s inconclusive.

    I don’t know about on the album, but for a good while live it was

    For those who give
    For those who take
    Phil’s got the groove
    Chris and Simon aint
    We salute you

    I'm pretty sure about these if you listen and look above.

    For those who take
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    those on the make

    One line missing. I hear "been there tire". Could be if the song was on Ballbreaker.
    Or is it "never tire"?

    Thank you Tom of ol Scotland. I seldom think of penises.

    Man it’s a crime is a Strong contender, but the second one is harder

    Amazon Music lists it as

    Aint gonna get tired, won't take a break, we salute you


    Which doesn't sound at all like what he's saying

    I think this is the most likely alternative. I should have mentioned in the OP, I noticed in one live vid he pointed up for the 1st of the 2 lines in question. So "those left high" would make sense if he means "left high and dry", or for dead, so he points to the sky. And it sounds to the ear most close to "those on the make" but that always bugged me because what does that mean? "Those on the rank" would at least seem to be more befitting the war theme of the song, but it does sound a lot like an "M" word at the end in some live videos.

    Interesting. "Those who get high" just doesn't fit though, that's too many syllables. I'm hearing a three syllable phrase in the recording. I wish we could trust official lyrics more, but they've had a history of being imperfect with this band.

    that's what i've heared for the last 3 decades
  14.  
    I don't know. The third line is hard, but the other three seem fairly clear (as posted by others). I agree with this much:

    For those who give
    For those that take
    [Those that tried?]
    Those out on the make

    The only sense I can make of it is if there is an opposite to 'those out on the make' (just like the opposites give/take in the first two lines).

    It doesn't quite sound right, but 'those that tried' (if correct) would mean people who didn't make it in the (music) biz (?or wherever they may be), while 'those out on the make' are those climbing up the ladder of success.
  15.  
    Yeah also listened to it, with some live versions - the last line is clear too like crazy CAT fellow said above.

    The third one is tricky - there is an R there, but really hard to make out, It always comes in very rushed.
