White Death

2010
Lyrics

Almost night, a crimson horizon painting thousand lakes red
As your army approach from the east, a hunter is switching his prey
All alone, a man with his gun wanders into the wild
Tracks you down, you cannot hide once he is on to your trail

Enter the night, a flash in the darkness, White Death is heading your way
The fear of his foes, a hero at home, hundreds will fall by his gun

You’re in the sniper’s sight, the first kill tonight, time to die
You’re in the bullet’s way, the White Death’s prey, say goodbye

After the dawn when morning has broken, snow once white turned to red
Blood red snow tells what happened last night, a tale of a sniper is born
Snow in mouth hiding his breath, he is steady at hand
Eye to eye, target in sight, the moment to fire has come

Hundreds of kills. a man and his rifle embody the sisu of finns
Stay out of sight and cover your head, when he pulls the trigger you’re dead

You’re in the sniper’s sight
SNIPER’S SIGHT!
You’re his first kill tonight
FIRST KILL TONIGHT!
Say goodbye, say goodbye
SAY GOODBYE!
Hundreds will fall by his gun

You’re in the sniper’s sight
SNIPER’S SIGHT!
You’re his first kill tonight
FIRST KILL TONIGHT!
Say goodbye, say goodbye
SAY GOODBYE!
White death is coming for you
