Sabaton – Hearts of Iron

Hearts of Iron

See the Reich in flames
Try to save Berlin in vain
It’s a road through death and pain
On the other shore, there’s the end of the war

Who could ever have believed, seems like nothing’s been achieved
Just to walk a day, go all the way, the fronts are closing in
As the end is drawing near, the 12th army interfere
Open up a route, get people out, it’s forces spread out thin

It’s the end of the war
Hold the corridor!
Reach for Elbe’s shore

It’s the end, the war has been lost
Keeping them safe ’til the river’s been crossed
Nicht ein schlacht, ein rettungsaktion
Holding their ground ’til the final platoon
“Hurry up, we’re waiting for you”
Men of the 9th, and civilians too
Dispossessed, surrendering to the west

Who’ll survive and who will die? Up to kriegsglück to decide
Those who made it cross, without a loss, have reason to reflect
It is not about Berlin, it is not about the Reich
It’s about the men, who fought for them, what peace can they expect?

It’s the end of the war
Hold the corridor!
Reach for Elbe’s shore

It’s the end, the war has been lost
Keeping them safe ’til the river’s been crossed
Nicht ein schlacht, ein rettungsaktion
Holding their ground ’til the final platoon
Hurry up, we’re waiting for you
Men of the 9th, and civilians too
Dispossessed, surrendering to the west

See the city burn on the other side
Going down in flames as two worlds collide
Who can now look back with a sense of pride?
On the other shore, there’s the end of the war

See the city burn on the other side
Going down in flames as two worlds collide
Who can now look back with a sense of pride?
On the other shore, there’s the end of the war

It’s the end, the war has been lost
Keeping them safe ’til the river’s been crossed
Nicht ein schlacht, ein rettungsaktion
Holding their ground ’til the final platoon
Hurry up, we’re waiting for you
Men of the 9th, and civilians too
Dispossessed, surrendering to the west

See the city burn on the other side
Going down in flames as two worlds collide
Who can now look back with a sense of pride?
On the other shore, there’s the end of the war

See the city burn on the other side
Going down in flames as two worlds collide
Who can now look back with a sense of pride?
On the other shore, there’s the end of the war

See the city burn on the other side
Going down in flames as two worlds collide
Who can now look back with a sense of pride?
On the other shore, there’s the end of the war

See the city burn on the other side
Going down in flames as two worlds collide
