Into The Fire


Sent from home overseas
And into the unknown
Barely landed in the jungle
Sent on first patrol

Sundown, darkness falls
Dig in for the night
Ambushed in the dawn they came
The jungle’s alive

I feel my fire starts to burn
The heat controlling my mind
Berserk, a savage running wild
Within me the beast starts to roar

Now I’m ready to strike
A creature of the night
Into the fire
The flame of napalm strike

Sarge’s down I’m in charge
VCs everywhere
Overrun yet order airstrike
Condemned us all to burn

Napalm from above
Burning friend and foe
Chaos on the battlefield
The jungle’s on fire

This place, it’s driving me insane
Napalm, it’s burning us all
This fight no man will live to tell
Within me my blood starts to boil

From above the airstrike came
And it burned the world below
Napalm falling from the sky
And it leaves no man alive

I feel my fire starts to burn
The heat controlling my mind
Napalm, it’s burning us alive
Within me the beast’s final roar

Lyrics:Brodén / Sundström
Historic Fact
The Second Indochina War (called the Vietnam War in the West and the American War in Vietnam) was a proxy war in the context of the Cold War. It was fought from 1954 to the fall of Saigon on April 30th, 1975 between North Vietnam and its southern allies, known as the Viet Cong or simply VC, (supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies) and South Vietnam (supported by the United States and other anti-communist nations). Napalm was used extensively in this conflict and primarily deployed via airstrikes. Napalm in its original form contained naphthenic and palmitic acid plus petroleum as fuel. Modern napalm is a mixture of plastic polystyrene, hydrocarbon benzene, and gasoline. This mixture creates a jelly-like substance that, when ignited, sticks to practically anything and burns up to ten minutes. It burns at temperatures of 800 to 1,200 C (1,500 – 2,200 F). The effects of napalm on the human body are unbearably painful and almost always cause death among its victims. [Fan generated content by: Joe Arino]
