Wehrmacht

Wehrmacht – Lyrics

Music by: Brodén / Text by: Brodén / Sundström

Lyrics:

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 lager 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 mademen 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?

Ad victoriam
Ex machina
Non sibi sed patriae [x2]

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

Crazy mademen 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?

Historic fact:

The Wehrmacht was the united armed forces of Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1946. The designation “Wehrmacht” (“Defence Force”) for Nazi Germany replaced the previously used term “Reichswehr” and constituted the Third Reich’s efforts to rearm the nation to a greater extent than the Treaty of Versailles permitted.
