The Last Battle

2016
Lyrics

5 th of may, V day is just around the corner
1945 the Führer reign is at it’s end

Jenny at the gates, as the SS open fire
There´s no time to waste, the final battle has begun

After the downfall, a castle besieged
Facing the nazis awaiting relief
Gangl and Lee and their men set the prisoners free

An it’s the end of the line of the final journey
Enemies leaving the past
And it’s American troops and the German army
Joining together at last

One last fight, it’s the death throes of the 3:rd reich
Justice shall be done, the final battle remains

Ammo is running low, they’re depleting their machineguns
Every bullet counts until surrender is announced

After the downfall, a castle relieved
Defeating the nazis who held them besieged
Gangl and Lee and their men set the prisoners free

From the foot of the alps to the shores of the sea
From the foot of the alps to the shores of the sea
From the home of the brave, from the land of the free
From the foot of the alps to the shores of the sea

Historic Fact
On May 5, 1945, one of the most unlikely alliances led to the rescue of high-profile French hostages at Castle Itter in Austria. This was thanks to an American Army captain, a Waffen SS officer and a German Army Major.
