Coat of Arms Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Coat of Arms (3:35)
At dawn envog arrives
Morning of October 28th
"No day" proven by deed
Descendants of Sparta,
Athens and Crete!

Look north, ready to fight
Enemies charge from the hills
To arms! Facing defeat!
There's no surrender! There's no retreat!

Time after time
Force their enemies back to the line
Call to arms banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
Blood of king Leonidas

Air raid pounding the land
Bombers are flying both day and night
Endure six days of rain
Dropped by invaders bomb raid in vain

Strike hard, the tables have turned
Drive them back over the hills
At arms! Just like before
Soldiers, civilians, Hellas at war

By theire own hand
Forced the enemy out of their land

Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
Blood of king Leonidas

Just like their ancestors ages ago
Fought in the face of defeat
Those three hundred men
Left a pride to uphold
Freedom of death in effect

Then, now again
Blood of heroes saving their land

Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
Blood of king Leonidas

Call to arms, banners fly in the wind
For the glory of Hellas
Coat of arms reading "Freedom or death!"
Blood of king Leonidas
2. Midway (2:29)
Send them over the waves
Our sentinels
They report in the news
Position of our foes

This battlefield's been chosen, tactically in advance
Time to alert our fighters
We're soon in range

Midway
We'll meet at Midway
Naval War

Calling all men to deck
Got to be airborne
Head out into the sun
Decending on our foes

This is the crucial moment, in the heat of the war
To fly and hit our targets
Down in the waves

Midway
Display their might, ordering carriers, admirals at war
We'll meet at Midway
To win the fight, tactics are crucial, naval war

Far from shore, a pacific war
bombs are falling from the skies
Its a bombrun day, it the naval way
A bloodred sun is on the rise
3. Uprising (4:55)
Warsaw Rise!

Do you remember when, when the Nazis forced their rule on Poland 1939 and the allies turned away
From the underground rose a hope of freedom as a whisper
City in despair, but they never lost their faith

Women, men and children fight
they were dying side by side
And the blood they shed upon the streets
was a sacrifice willingly paid

Warsaw city at war
Voices from underground

whispers of freedom
1944 help that never came
Calling Warsaw city at war
Voices from underground

whispers of freedom
Rise up and hear the call
History calling to you
'Warszawo, walcz!'

Spirit soul and heart
in accordance with the old traditions
1944 still the allies turn away
Fighting street to street
in a time of hope and desperation
Did it on their own and they never lost their faith

Women, men and children fight
they were dying side by side
And the blood they shed upon the streets
was a sacrifice willingly paid

Warsaw city at war
Voices from underground

whispers of freedom
1944 help that never came
Calling Warsaw city at war
Voices from underground

whispers of freedom
Rise up and hear the call
History calling to you
'Warszawo, walcz!'

[Solo – Oskar & Rikard]

[2x]
All the streetlights in the city
broken many years ago
Break the curfew, hide in sewers
Warsaw it's time to rise now

Warsaw city at war
Voices from underground

whispers of freedom
1944 help that never came
Calling Warsaw city at war
Voices from underground

whispers of freedom
Rise up and hear the call
History calling to you
'Warszawa, walcz!'
4. Screaming Eagles (4:07)
Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artillery pounding
Wrath of the Nazi's cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

ALONE! [2x]

Sent from the skies jumped into the unknown
The march to Berlin has begun
Spearhead the charge surrounded by foes
Eagles are leading the way

France is still under enemy rule
Push, axis retreat

Thrown towards Arnhem a bitter defeat
They're stretched out just one bridge too far
Turn of the tide, it's breaking away
Losing momentum, retreat

Go to Bastogne, the crossroads must hold
Stand, alone in the cold

Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artillery pounding
Wrath of the Nazi's cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

ALONE! [2x]

Dig your own foxholes or dig your own Grave
The storm is about to begin
The siege has begun, there's nowhere to run
Panzerkampfwagen emerge

Tanks and mortars are shaking the ground
Prey of man and machine

Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artillery pounding
Wrath of the Nazi's cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

Chill of the winter bite to the bone and Christmas is drawing near
Soldiers are freezing, the death toll increasing
They're dying in their holes
There's no surrender there's no retreat, the Wehrmacht is drawing near
There's no reinforcements they're fighting all alone

Sent from the skies ended up in Bastogne
As easy, as hard as they get
Nazi command request and demand
Offer surrender – declined

Nuts! The generals word echo clear
Nuts! The Nazi's shall hear

[2x]
Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artillery pounding
Wrath of the Nazi's cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone
5. The Final Solution (4:56)
Country in depression
Nation in despair
One man seeking reasons everywhere
Growing hate and anger
The Fuhrer's orders were precise
Who was to be blamed and pay the price!

Wicked propaganda
Turning neighbors into foes
Soldiers of the third Reich searching homes
And then the former friends are watching
As they are rounded up one by one
Times of prosecutions has begun

Ever since it started
On Crystal night of 38
When liberty died
And truth was denied
Sent away on train on a one way trip to hell
Enter the gates Auschwitz awaits!

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

There was a country in depression
There was a nation in despair
One man finding reasons everywhere
Then there was raising hate and anger
The Fuhrer's orders still apply
Who was to be blamed and send to die!

[1x chorus]
[2x chorus]
6. Aces In Exile (4:22)
In the skies above the isle
Aces In Exile prepare!

From near and far they arrived join the force
Ready to serve the Allied command
Sent in the training, though they already earned their wings
They were ready to fly they were fit for the fight
Once in the air the battle began
They had proven their worth now they fight for revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly for foreign land
Let the story be heard tell of 303
Fighter pilots of Poland in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Even at night shadows cover the ground
Fighting goes on from dusk till dawn
We fall on the Reich with the claws of the eagle!
They were Ready to fight, they were ready to die
Up in the air, the battle goes on
They had proven their worth now they have their revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly for foreign land
Tell the story again to the 310
Men of Czechoslovakia in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Over the battlefield brave man long way from home
You are the chosen ones sent to the sky to die
Over the battlefield brave man long way from home
You are the chosen ones sent to the sky to die

Oh fly - it echoes in history
Turning the tides in the heavens above

Fighter pilots in exile fly for foreign land
When the battle's been won trouble 401
Fighter pilots of Canada in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

On wings of history they turn from home
To live eternally sky bound they roam
In all of history, never before
Was more owed to so few

Fighter pilot in exile!
7. Saboteurs (3:15)
Dropped down to a world of ice
A platoe of frozen lakes
A Nazi place of doom in their sights
Training camps on Scottish Heights
To commando saboteurs
A mission of their lives lies ahead

[Chorus:]
Called in to serve
And they knew what to do
They were the heroes of the cold

Warrior soul, they signed a book of history
They played a leading role to win the 2nd war

Allied time was running short
They would race against the bomb
And hours turned to days, time passed on
As the nature Test their strength
They would fight through night and day
To live amongst the wild, stay alive

Called in to serve
And they knew what to do
They were the heroes of the cold

Warrior soul, they signed a book of history
They played a leading role to win the 2nd war

Heroes of the telemark
Carry viking blood in veins
Warriors of the northern land
They live forever more [x2]

Called in to serve
And they knew what to do
They were the heroes of the cold

Warrior soul!

Warrior soul, they signed a book of history
They played a leading role to win the 2nd war [x2]
8. Wehrmacht (4:14)
Pulled into war to serve a vision
That's supposed to last a thousand years
Part of a machine unstoppable
As merciless as tidal waves

Were they the victims of the time
Or proud parts of lager goals?
Propaganda of the Reich masterful machine

Time and again the battle rages on
Beyond the gates of misery
As casualties rise and millions die around them
Did they see it all?

Crazy mademen on a leash
Or young men who lost their way?
Grand illusions of the Reich
May seem real at times

Panzers on a line
Form the Wehrmacht's spine
Lethal grand design
What about the men executing orders?

Ad victoriam
Ex machina
Non sibi sed patriae [x2]

Pulled into war to serve a vision
That just didn't last a thousand years
Part of a machine
Though stoppable as merciless as tidal waves

Crazy mademen on a leash
Or young men who lost their way?
Grand illusions of the Reich
May seem real at times

Panzers on a line
Form the Wehrmacht's spine
Lethal grand design
What about the men executing orders?
9. The White Death (4:10)
Almost night, a crimson horizon
Painting thousand lakes red
As your army approach in the east
A hunter is switching his prey

All alone, a man with his gun
Wanders into the wild
Track you down, you can't hide
Once he's on to your trail

Into the night, a flash in the darkness
White Death is heading your way
The fear of his foes, a hero at home
Hundreds will fall by his gun

You're in the snipers sight
the first kill tonight
Time to die
You're in the bullets way
The White Death's prey
Say goodbye!

After the dawn, when morning is broken
Snow once white turn to red
Hundred soldiers, we have them on sight
A tale of a sniper is born

Snow in mouth, hiding his breath
He is steady at hand
Eye to eye, target in sight!
The moment to fire has come

Hundreds of kills, a man and his rifle
Embodied the Sisu of Finn's
Stay out of sight and cover your head
When he pulls the trigger you're dead!

You're in the snipers sight
the first kill tonight
Time to die
You're in the bullets way
The White Death's prey
Say goodbye!

[Solo]

You're in the snipers sight
the first kill tonight
Time to die
You're in the bullets way
The White Death's prey
Say goodbye!

(You're in the snipers sight)
SNIPERS SIGHT!
(You're his first kill tonight)
FIRST KILL TONIGHT!
(Say goodbye, say goodbye)
SAY GOODBYE!
(You will fall by his gun)

(You're in the snipers sight)
SNIPERS SIGHT!
(You're his first kill tonight)
FIRST KILL TONIGHT!
(Say goodbye, say goodbye)
SAY GOODBYE!
(White death is coming for you)
10. Metal Ripper (3:50)
you're in for a suprise,
You're in for a shock.
In long gone tall streets, where there is darkness and fog.
I'm going down, all the way down,
Up on the highway to hell from here!
Blessed by the night, holy and bright
Called by the toll of the bell.
Oh, Mr. Crowley did you talk to the dead?
Sleep with the devil, and then you must pay!

[Chorus:]
In the land of the damned,
Come on in child take my hand!
(hear the rising force)
Watch the devils the damned, they're gonna break the chains
Through the night
(you cant hear them)

Twisting you mind, a smash in your dreams.
blinded by me you cant see a thing!
Torches blazed and sacred chants were phrased
Blood on your face you big disgrace!
Strand of silver hanging through the sky,
Touching more than you can see.
Appears like a wonder, without any move,
Can i get close, closer to you?

[Chorus]

ALL ABOARD, Hahahahaha.

[Chorus x2]
