Music: Brodén Lyrics: Brodén
Pulled into war to serve a vision that’s supposed to last a thousand years
Part of a machine unstoppable, as merciless as tidal waves
Were they the victims of the time, or proud parts of larger goals?
Propaganda of the reich masterful machine
Time and again the battle rages on beyond the gates of misery
As casualties rise and millions die around them did they see it all?
Crazy madmen on a leash, or young men who lost their way?
Grand illusions of the reich may seem real at times
Panzers on a line form the wehrmacht’s spine
Lethal grand design
What about the men executing orders?
Non sibi sed patriae
Pulled into war to serve a vision that just didn’t last a thousand years
Part of a machine, though stoppable as merciless as tidal waves
