SABATON - The Great War


Obal


1. THE FUTURE OF WARFARE

Standing in the line of fire
32 will lead the way
Coming over trench and wire
Going through the endless grey

A desolate wasteland
Infernal depiction of Hell
The birth of a new way
September 15, 1916

The first wave approaches
At Flers-Courcelette
Through fire and brimstone
Breaking away, coming your way

Standing in the line of fire
32 will lead the way
Coming over trench and wire
Going through the endless grey

Standing in the line of fire
Moving on through the fray
Coming over trench and wire
Live to fight another day

The spell has been broken
A new way to wage war has come
The future of warfare
For all to be seen, 1918

The new world approaches
Villers-Bretonneux
Mechanized warfare
Breaking away, coming your way

Standing in the line of fire
32 will lead the way
Coming over trench and wire
Going through the endless grey

Standing in the line of fire
Moving on through the fray
Coming over trench and wire
Live to fight another day

Standing in the line of fire
Moving on through the fray
Coming over trench and wire
Live to fight another day

Standing in the line of fire
32 will lead the way
Coming over trench and wire
Going through the endless grey

Standing in the line of fire
Moving on through the fray
Coming over trench and wire
Live to fight another day



2. SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM

Far from home, a man with a mission
In the heat of the glistening sun
In the heart of ancient tradition
This man's journey has only begun

Lead the charge
A raider has entered the battlefield
Sabotage
The game is about to unfold

As the darkness falls and Arabia calls
One man spreads his wings, as the battle begins
May the land lay claim on to Lawrence name
Seven pillars of wisdom lights the flame

A revolt to gain independence
Hide and seek, hunters hot on their trail
Joined their ranks, obtained their acceptance
Side by side raid the Ottoman rail

Lead the charge
Tafilah, Medina, Damascus calls
Sabotage
Demolish the bridges to dust

As the darkness falls and Arabia calls
One man spreads his wings, as the battle begins
May the land lay claim on to Lawrence name
Seven pillars of wisdom lights the flame

After the war has been won, deception or treason?
Who can tell?
Who stood to gain?
Who stood to loose?
Who did the dying?
Betrayal of trust from within or compelled?
The pillars of wisdom can tell
Back home where a new life awaits, whispers of past
The sands of Arabia calling

As the darkness falls and Arabia calls
One man spreads his wings, as the battle begins
May the land lay claim on to Lawrence name
Seven pillars of wisdom lights the flame

As the darkness falls and Arabia calls
One man spreads his wings, as the battle begins
May the land lay claim on to Lawrence name
Seven pillars of wisdom lights the flame



3. 82ND ALL THE WAY

In the draft of 1917, a man from Tennessee
Overseas to the trenches he went, from the land of the free
Into war he brought two things along, a rifle and his faith
Joined the ranks as a private, assigned to 338th

There on that day, Alvin York
Entered the fray
Saving the day
82nd all the way

Into the fires of Hell, the Argonne, a hero to be
Entered the war from over the sea
Intervene, 1918, all the way from Tennessee
Hill 223

When his faith has been put to the test, the call to arms he heeds
On the 8th of October he went, made a sergeant for his deeds
Fearless, leading the raid of the war, machine gun on the hill
Charge the enemy taking the prisoners, by power of his will

There on that day, Sergeant York
Entered the fray
Saving the day
82nd all the way

Into the fires of Hell, the Argonne, a hero to be
Entered the war from over the sea
Intervene, 1918, all the way from Tennessee
Hill 223

What Sergeant York achieved that day
Would echo to the U.S.A.
It's 82nd all the way
Death from above, what they now say

What Sergeant York achieved that day
Echoes from France to the U.S.A.
It's 82nd all the way
Death from above, what they now say

Into the fires of Hell, the Argonne, a hero to be
Entered the war from over the sea
Intervene, 1918, all the way from Tennessee
Hill 223...

Hell, the Argonne, a hero to be
Entered the war from over the sea
Intervene, 1918, all the way from Tennessee
Hill 223



4. THE ATTACK OF THE DEAD MEN

Turmoil at the front
Wilhelms forces on the hunt
There's a thunder in the east
It's an attack of the deceased
They've been facing poison gas
7,000 charge en masse
Turn the tide of the attack
And force the enemy to turn back

And that's when the dead men are marching again

Osowiec then and again
Attack of the dead, hundred men
Facing the lead once again
Hundred men
Charge again
Die again

Osowiec then and again
Attack of the dead, hundred men
Facing the lead once again
Hundred men
Charge again
Die again

Two combatants spar
Hindenburg against the Tsar
Move in 12 battalions large
Into a Russian counter-charge
They'll be fighting for their lives
As their enemy revives
Russians won't surrender, no
Striking fear into their foe

And that's when the dead men are marching again

Osowiec then and again
Attack of the dead, hundred men
Facing the lead once again
Hundred men
Charge again
Die again

Osowiec then and again
Attack of the dead, hundred men
Facing the lead once again
Hundred men
Charge again
Die again

And that's when the dead men are marching again

Osowiec then and again
Attack of the dead, hundred men
Facing the lead once again
Hundred men
Charge again
Die again

Osowiec then and again
Attack of the dead, hundred men
Facing the lead once again
Hundred men
Charge again
Die again

That's when the dead men are marching again, marching again
That's when the dead march again



5. DEVIL DOGS

Kill, fight, die
That's what a soldier should do
Top of their game, earning their name
They were the Devil dogs
In a war machine
They were the USA marines

1918, USA intervene
Until now they were mainly observing
There in the wheat fields and a small piece of land
It's a battle that will write history

5 times attacked, and then 5 times repelled
At the 6th time they managed to break the line
Heart of the corps, and a part of the lore
The deadliest weapon on earth

Kill, fight, die
That's what a soldier should do
Top of their game, earning their name
They were the Devil dogs
In a war machine
They were the USA marines

Dogs lead ahead, and attack through the led
Put to test, at the battle of Belleau
Clearing the forest and advance through the trees
It's the end of the war that's in sight

Hill 142, it's a final break through
It's the key to controlling the battlefield
Second to none, a marine and a gun
And the foes run in fear of their name

Kill, fight, die
That's what a soldier should do
Top of their game, earning their name
They were the Devil dogs
In a war machine
They were the USA marines

In times they are needed, such times they appear
When a leader has fallen, a hero arise
And inspire the lost into glorious deeds that
Would give them a name that live on to this day
When...

In times they are needed, such times they appear
When a leader has fallen, a hero arise
And inspire the lost into glorious deeds that
Would give them a name that live on to this day

"Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?"

Second to none, a marine and a gun
Raising hell as they're fighting like dogs of war
Heart of the corps, and a part of the lore
The deadliest weapon on earth

Kill, fight, die
That's what a soldier should do
Top of their game, earning their name
They were the Devil dogs
In a war machine
They were the USA
And since then
They are the devil dogs of war
And then always
Are the USA marines



6. THE RED BARON

Man and machine and nothing there in between
A flying circus and a man from Prussia
The sky and a plane, this man commands his domain
The western front and all the way to Russia

Death from above, you're under fire
Stained red as blood, he’s roaming higher

Born a soldier from the horseback to the skies
That's where the legend will arise

And he's flying

Higher, the king of the sky
He’s flying too fast and he's flying to high
Higher, an eye for an eye
The legend will never die

First to the scene he is a lethal machine
It's bloody April and the tide is turning
Fire at will it is the thrill of the kill
Four in a day shot down with engines burning

Embrace the fame, red squadron leader
Call out his name, Rote Kampffieger

In the game to win, a gambler rolls the dice
Eighty allies paid the price

And he's flying

Higher, the king of the sky
He's flying too fast and he's flying to high
Higher, an eye for an eye
The legend will never die

Higher
Higher, the king of the sky
He's flying too fast and he's flying to high
Higher, an eye for an eye
The legend will never die

Higher

Born a soldier from the horseback to the skies
And the legend never dies

And he’s flying
And he’s flying
And he's flying

Higher
Higher, the king of the sky
He’s flying too fast and he's flying too high
Higher, an eye for an eye
The legend will never die

Higher
Higher, the king of the sky
He's flying too fast and he's flying too high
Higher, an eye for an eye
The legend will never die



7. GREAT WAR

Where dead men lies I'm paralyzed, my brothers' eyes are gone
And he shall be buried here, nameless marks his grave
Mother home, get a telegram and shed a tear of grief
Mud and blood, in foreign land, trying to understand

Where is this greatness I've been told?
This is the lies that we been sold
Is this a worthy sacrifice?

Great war
And I cannot take more
Great tour
I keep on marching on
I play the great score
There will be no encore
Great War
The war to end all wars

I'm standing here, I'm full of fear, with bodies at my feet
On there in the other trench, bullets wear my name
Lead ahead, as the captain said and show them no remorse
Who am I to understand what have I become?

I do my duties, pay the price
I'll do the worthy sacrifice
I know my deeds are not in vain

Great war
And I cannot take more
Great tour
I keep on marching on
I play the great score
There will be no encore
Great War
The war to end all wars

And feet by feet
We pay the price of a mile here
Though men are falling, we see Heroes rise
We face the heat
As we are fighting until the dawn
So follow me and we will write our own history

Great war
And I cannot take more
Great tour
I keep on marching on
I play the great score
There will be no encore
Great War
The war to end all wars



8. A GHOST IN THE TRENCHES

Move between the lines, a soldier breaking the confines

A force deployed from overseas
A war in foreign land await the eager recruits
And in their midst, among the men
A soldier with a different past return to his roots

Into battle, the gas has them pinned
Then this soldier invoke the spirits of the wind

Under fire, a ghost that roams the battlefield
Move between the lines, a soldier breaking the confines
Just another man and rifle, a marksman and a scout revealed
Makes his way from trench to trench alone, moving undetected

And on the fields of Passchendaele
A guiding light for reinforcements finding their way
And in the Battle of the Scarpe
Bring ammo over no man's land and fire away

In the battle, the gas had them pinned
Pegahmagabow invoked the spirits of the wind

Under fire, a ghost that roams the battlefield
Move between the lines, a soldier breaking the confines
Just another man and rifle, a marksman and a scout revealed
Makes his way from trench to trench alone, moving undetected

Under fire, a ghost that...
Under fire, a ghost that roams the battlefield
Move between the lines, a soldier breaking the confines
Just another man and rifle, a marksman and a scout revealed
Makes his way from trench to trench alone, moving undetected

Francis stayed and fought throughout the war, made his way until the end alive



9. FIELDS OF VERDUN

As the drum roll started on that day, heard a hundred miles away
A million shells were fired and the green fields turned to grey

The bombardment lasted all day long, yet the forts were standing strong
Heavily defended, now the trap has been sprung and the battle has begun

Descend into darkness
303 days below the sun

Fields of Verdun
And the battle has begun
Nowhere to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Under the gun

Thy will be done
And the judgement has begun
Nowhere to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Fields of Verdun

Though a million shells have scarred the land, no one has the upper hand
From the ground above to trenches, where the soldiers make their stand

As the trenches slowly turn to mud, and then quickly start to flood
Death awaits in every corner, as they die in the mud, fill the trenches with blood

Fields of execution turned to wasteland from the grass
Thou shalt go no further it was said they shall not pass
The spirit of resistance and the madness of the war
So...
Go ahead!
Face the led!
Join the dead!
Though you die!
Where you lie!
Never asking why!



10. THE END OF THE WAR TO END ALL WARS

Death, hard to ignore
One million lost five months into the war

Pain, fell one by one
Three years remained, it had only begun

Unable to restore
A map redrawn
Unlike what came before
The future of warfare has dawned

Do, what must be done
Send off your son, life cut short by a gun

Gas, cover the fields
Gone with the wind, reveal lethal ideals

And as the end draws near
November dawn
With losses so severe
Cease-fire, their forces withdrawn

Great war enter
Front and centre
Grand endeavour
Lost forever

Great war enter
Front and centre
Grand endeavour
Lost forever

And as the end draws near
November dawn
With losses so severe
Cease-fire, their forces withdrawn

November 11th settling the score
From 15 to 20 million
Almost half of the dead civilian
A new world will dawn from empires fallen
The end of the war to end war



11. IN FLANDERS FIELDS

In Flanders fields the poppies grow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
