Mekong Delta Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Without Honour (3:53)
Marching through the jungle
Small change to survive
Shrapnell fire's pounding
Men must leave their lifes
Corpses fill the graves
They are defaced, they are bloated
Mutilated limbs
And no one knows from whom they are
Treated as if they're garbage
No one sheds a tear
They die without honour
Get burried with no name
They die without honour
Everyone's the same
Back from hell again
Not a chance is given
Screaming from the gutter
Die just like the others
Corpses fill the graves
They are defaced, they are bloated
Mutilated limbs
And no one knows from whom they are
Treated as if you're garbage
No one sheds a tear
They die without honour
Get burried with no name
They die without honour
Everyone's the same
2. The Cure (3:27)
When you'll come back home again
Weary from the fight
I will nurse your wounds and I'll
release you from your weights
You must be hungry and
There's blood upon your hands
So please come in and I will cure your fever
Why don't you rest your head
You long for warmth I bet
You needn't worry of a thing when I'm near
(He's the cure)
I'm the cure
I'm the cure
What can just light up your heart
When you're in the dark
What just makes privation worth
What's dearer to a man
To see this face again
To touch this body and
To feel the blood pulsating in your veins
Your hunger will be fed
For every tear you've shed
You'll get the threefold pay in just one long night
(He's the cure)
I'm the cure
I'm the cure
3. The Hut Of The Baba Yaga (4:11)
(instrumental)
4. Heroes Grief (4:06)
Hear them sing the tales of glory
About a man so brave and wise
He subdued the hated tyrant
But he's unlucky, hear his cries
Why, why, why
All of mine are dead and gone (why, why)
Oh, my absence was too long (why, why, why)
Bloody vengeance's what I swear (why, why)
Heroes grief, it makes me stong!
In the world's most darkest hour
When he prevents the fall of man
He shakes off the yoke of evil
He is the saviour of all land
Why, why, why
These betrayers killed my love (why, why)
But there soon will come the day (why, why, why)
For their treason they must pay (why, why)
Heroes grief, it makes me strong!
"After Karlaak had fall he went through the forest of Troos
where he met Zarozinia, daughter of the fallen king of the Dreaming City.
He tried to part himself from his two glorious swords "Stormbringer" and "Blade of Sorrow",
and was punished by the gods with the knowledge about his destiny.
He had to face the bitter truth of being an immortal hero
in the endless war between good and bad........"
5. Kill The Enemy (3:43)
I'm given order to survive
No way to spare the other's life
The battle must be finished now
We'll purificate this damned town
Kill the enemy [4x]
I've struggled hard without success
I gave them all my very best
The again is now I'm kicked aside
I would be starved if I won't fight
We embody the depravity
Those ones propriety
They'll curse the day they're born when
We've got them under fire
Kill the enmy [4x]
[repeat first and third verse]
Kill the enemy [4x]
6. Nightmare Patrol (3:47)
Screams, lonely in the night
Deadly torture, just remember
War captivity
Fellows on your side
Blood - spurting out his neck
While his head is rolling to the ground
And his dying corpse's
vincing at my feet
And the torturer said to me
The next one could be you
And I told him all the things
My comrades planned to do
Screams, lonely in my room
Wake up in cold sweat like every night
I can't get these things out of my head
Mad, I got nearly mad
With this lack of sleep I can't get clear
Help me in my pain
I am shell shocked
Every night it's just the same
I can't rest my soul
I'm the one who is to blame
This nightmare patrol
7. Shivas Return (3:40)
Brahma made it happen long ago - apemen came
Vishnu had created all we know - he explored
Chakravartin's turning the world's wheel - he found out
Shiva now is coming for the kill - he destroyed
Shiva's return
Population's growning day by day - time for war
Chemistry will make us all insane - dead is life
Industry's polluting what we breathe - grass's still green
Nuclear disasters bring disease - don't panic
Time goes by - It's a daily war
One more crime - Against life itself
Mother earth - Nature don't need men
Shiva's here - We can't survive without her
Brahma made it happen long ago - you don't need
Vishnu had created all we know - to have fear
Chakravartin's turning the world's wheel - for your soul
Shiva now is coming for the kill - but your health
Shiva's return
8. Black Sabbath (4:14)
Sweet leaf, why did you turn around
I'm stumblin' snowblind through the trees
But what is this, that stands before me
It's an iron man of the grave
Laughing and turning the cross upside down
BLACK SABBATH
War pigs, the snout full of rat salad
They march to the electric funeral, stirin' the blood
The wizzard, wearing the boots of mine
You are my wishing well in my paranoid dreams
Laughing and turning the cross upside down
BLACK SABBATH
9. Back Home (In Hell) (4:44)
Back in the streets again
Jail's gates opened and
someone wished me good luck
Where should I run to now
I once knew someone
Don't remember his name
I'm decades too late
(I) don't live today
Now I'm back again - in hell
I'm back home
I'm back home in hell
Bang! someone shot next door
Someone robbed the store
Raging war in the streets
Living undignified
Misanthropicy
Aimless creatures like me
The times, they have changed
I'm still the same
Now I'm back again - in hell
I'm back home
I'm back home in hell
