Heroes Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Night Witches (3:01)
From the depths of Hell in silence
Cast their spells, explosive violence
Russian night time flight perfected
Flawless vision, undetected

Pushing on and on, their planes are going strong
Air force's number one
Somewhere down below they're looking for the foe
Bomber's on a run
You can't hide, you can't move, just abide
Their attack's been proved
Raiders in the dark
Silent through the night the witches join the fight
Never miss their mark

Canvas wings of death
Prepare to meet your fate
Night bomber regiment
588

Undetected, unexpected
Wings of glory
Tell their story
Aviation, deviation
Undetected
Stealth perfected

Foes are losing ground, retreating to the sound
Death is int he air
Suddenly appears, confirming all your fears
Strike from witches lair
Target found, come around, barrels sound
From the battleground
Axis aiming high
Rodina awaits, defeat them at the gates
Live to fight and fly

Beneath the starlight of the heavens
Unlikely heroes in the skies
Witches to attack, witches coming back
As they appear on the horizon
The wind will whisper when the Night Witches come
2. No Bullets Fly (3:37)
From down below one enemy’s spotted
So hurry up, rearm and refuel
But through the bomber's damaged air frame
See wounded men scattered and burned

Look to the right and then look again
And see the enemy in the eye
No bullets fly, spared by his mercy
Escorted out, out of harm’s way

Fly, fighting fair
It’s the code of the air
Brothers, heroes, foes

Killing machine
Thunder in the sky
B-17
Flying home
Killing machine
Said goodbye to the Cross he deserved

He risked his life 2 times that day
To save an unknown enemy
Escort to safety, out of the killzone
A short salute, then departed

Fly, fighting fair
It's the code of the air
Brothers, heroes, foes

Killing machine
Thunder in the sky
B-17
Flying home
Killing machine
Said goodbye to the Cross he deserved

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Fly, fighting fair
It's the code of the air
Brothers, heroes, foes

Killing machine
Thunder in the sky
B-17
Flying home
Killing machine
Said goodbye to the Cross he deserved
3. Smoking Snakes (3:14)
We remember, no surrender
Heroes of our century

3 men stood strong, and they held out for long
Going into the fight, to their death that awaits
Crazy or brave, will it end in the grave?
As they're giving their lives
As their honor dictates

Far, far from home, to a war
Fought on foreign soil and
Far, far from known, tell their tale,
Their forgotten story
Cobras fumantes, eterna é sua vitória

Rise from the blood of your heroes
You, were the ones who refused to surrender
The 3, rather died than to flee,
Know that your memory,
Will be sung for a century

3 took the blow, while impressing their foe
Throwing dice, with their lives
As they're paying the price
Sent to raise hell, hear the toll of the bell
It is calling for you as the Wehrmacht devised

Sent over seas to be cast into fire
Fought for a purpose with pride and desire
Blood of the brave they would give to inspire
Cobras fumantes, your memory lives!
4. Inmate 4859 (4:26)
The dawn of century a boy born by a lake
Resettled from Karelia’s plains
Go to a man in exile as the Great War came
Unleashed a shadow on his world

Witold, Witold, who knows his name?

Inmate in hell or a hero in prison?
Soldier in Auschwitz who knows his name
Locked in a cell, waging war from the prison
Hiding in Auschwitz who hides behind 4859

"Outside help never came, decided to break free
The end of April ‘43
Joined the Uprising, fight on the streets while hiding his rank
Takes command (all for) serving his country in need

Witold, Witold, who knows his name?

Inmate in hell or a hero in prison?
Soldier in Auschwitz who knows his name
Locked in a cell, waging war from the prison
Hiding in Auschwitz who hides behind 4859

Sent to the prison where the heroes are judged as traitors
Accused of treason by his own
Sentenced by countrymen under pressure of foreign influence
Men he once fought to free

Inmate in hell or a hero in prison?
Soldier in Auschwitz we know his name
Locked in a cell, waging war from the prison
Hiding in Auschwitz he hides behind 4859
5. To Hell and Back (3:26)
A short man from Texas
A man of the wild
Thrown into combat
Where bodies lie piled

Hides his emotions
His blood's running cold
Just like his victories,
his story unfolds

Bright
A white light
If there'd be,
any glory in war

Let it rest
On men like him

Dead men will never come back

Crosses grow on Anzio
Where no soldiers sleep
and where hell is six feet deep
That death does wait
There's no debate
So charge and attack
going to Hell and Back

A man of the 15th
A man of Can Do
Friends fall around him
And yet he came through

Let them fall face down
If they must die
Making it easier
To say goodbye

Bright
A white light
If there'd be,
any glory in war

Let it rest
On men like him

Who went to Hell and came back

Crosses grow on Anzio
Where no soldiers sleep
and where hell is six feet deep
That death does wait
There's no debate
So charge and attack
going to Hell and Back

Oh gather round me
And listen while I speak
Of a war
Where Hell is six feet deep

And all along the shore
Where cannons still roar
They're haunting my dreams
They're still there when I sleep

Crosses grow on Anzio
Where no soldiers sleep
and where hell is six feet deep
That death does wait
There's no debate
So charge and attack
going to Hell and Back
6. The Ballad of Bull (3:53)
Sometimes war is killing
Sometimes it's saving lives
It's the judgement of faith
It's nothing that man can dictate

Corporal Leslie Allen carried them from Tambu
Saved his brothers in arms
when no would follow through

There and back again
Bull just carried on
Under fire he carried them out one by one
There and back again
Bullets all around
All of the members that he carried away
Twelve men would now live to see one more day
His fear held at bay
As he carried them away

Sometimes war is killing
Sometimes it's saving lives
From Australia's shore
Bull Allen went to war

Sometimes war is saving
Sometimes it's taking lives
Thanks to one single man
A dozen more survived

There and back again
Bull just carried on
Under fire he carried them out one by one
There and back again
Bullets all around
All of the men that he carried away
Twelve men would now live to see one more day
His fear held at bay
As he carried them away

Some men return from a war in a bag
And yet the world knows their story
Almost return unwilling to grant
a life and humble at heart

Nooooooo

There and back again
Bull just carried on
Under fire he carried them out one by one
There and back again
Bullets all around
All of the men that he carried away
Twelve men would now live to see one more day
His fear held at bay
As he carried them away
7. Resist and Bite (3:27)
War is coming swiftly,
The borders closing in
We're a company of soldiers,
Mere forty rifles strong!

All alone!
Stand alone!

Ardenner ground is burning,
And Rommel is at hand
As the Blitzkrieg's pushing harder,
The war is all around!

All around!
Hold your ground!

Fight all eighteen days of battles,
No odds are on our side,
Few will fight for all, until the bullets are gone

We, we will resist and bite!
Bite hard, 'cause we are all in sight!
We, we take up arms and fight!
Fight hard, resist and do what's right!

No matter our fighting,
The numbers will still count
We're outgunned and few in numbers,
We're doomed to flag or fail!

We fought hard!
Held our guard!

But when captured by the Axis,
And forced to tell the truth
We will tell it with a smile,
We'll surprise them with a laugh!

We are all!
We were all!

We were told to hold the border,
And that is what we did
Honored were our orders in despite of our foe

We, we will resist and bite!
Bite hard, 'cause we are all in sight!
We, we take up arms and fight!
Fight hard, resist and do what's right!

Gloria fortis miles, the Wehrmacht's closing in!
Adversor et admorsus, the Boar against the Eagle!

Gloria fortis miles, the Wermacht's closing in!
Adversor et admorsus, the Boar against the Eagle!

We, we will resist and bite!
Bite hard, 'cause we are all in sight!
We, we'll take up arms and fight!
Fight hard, resist and do what's right!
8. Soldier of 3 Armies (3:38)
Started out as a reserve
Soon promoted well deserved
And the legend has begun

With a bounty on his head
The red army wants him dead
Soviet enemy number one

Across the Mannerheim
Addicted to the war game
Neverending flame
Victory reclaimed

Oh we remember
We remember
We remember

Shout!
Lauri Törni's name
A soldier of three armies knows the game
Keeps their echo from the past
Rise from beyond your grave
Son of Finland and the Green Beret
May you rest in peace at last
Lauri Allan Törni

Across the water a new start
War still beating in his heart
A new legend has been born

Started out as a reserve
Soon promoted when deserved
Changed his name to
Larry Thorne

Across the Mannerheim
Addicted to the war game
Neverending flame
Victory reclaimed

Oh we remember
We remember
We remember

Shout!
Lauri Törni's name
A soldier of three armies knows the game
Keeps their echo from the past
Rise from beyond your grave
Son of Finland and the Green Beret
May you rest in peace at last

From the finnish lakes
Into Germany and USA
All the wars he came across
Cross of Mannerheim, an Iron Cross
a Bronze Star, Purple Heart,
one Distinguished Flying Cross

Shout!
Lauri Törni's name
A soldier of three armies knows the game
Keeps their echo from the past
Rise from beyond your grave
Son of Finland and the Green Beret
May you rest in peace at last
Lauri Allan Törni
9. Far from the Fame (3:47)
As the great war is over and lost
He's been wounded in war, he returns with awards
Into battle again far from home
From a far distant land, our Marshal command

Home
Siblings sent to their death
His wife paid the ultimate price
Still
As the war rages on
You are our guide

Far, far from the fame
Far, far away from the fame
But we still remember your name
Karel Janoušek!
We mourn the day that you died
So be our guide, Czechoslovakia's pride

When the war has been fought and been won
Our Marshal returns, to be thrown into jail
Facing torture and years behind bars
When he's finally back, life in ivory black

Home
Siblings sent to their death
His wife paid the ultimate price
Still
As the war rages on
You are our guide

Far, far from the fame
Far, far away from the fame
But we still remember your name
Karel Janoušek!
We mourn the day that you died
So be our guide, Czechoslovakia's pride

Far, far from the fame
Far, far away from the fame
But we still remember your name
Karel Janoušek!
We mourn the day that you died
So be our guide, Czechoslovakia's pride

Far, far from the fame
Far, far away from the fame
But we still remember your name
Karel Janoušek!
We mourn the day that you died
So be our guide, Czechoslovakia's pride
10. Hearts of Iron (4:28)
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!
Dispossesed, 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?

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...
