Primo Victoria Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Primo Victoria (4:10)
Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the Nazi lines
Primo victoria

We've been training for years
Now we're ready to strike
As the great operation begins
We're the first wave on the shore
We're the first ones to fall
Yet soldiers have fallen before

In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
In this burning inferno
Know that nothing remains
As our forces advance on the beach

Aiming for heaven though serving in hell
Victory is ours their forces will fall

Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the Nazi lines
Primo victoria

On the 6th of June
On the shores of western Europe 1944
D-day upon us

We've been here before
Used to this kind of war
Crossfire grind through the sand
Our orders were easy
It's kill or be killed
Blood on both sides will be spilled

In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
Now that we are at war
With the axis again
This time we know what will come

6th of June 1944
Allies are turning the war
Normandy state of anarchy
Overlord
2. Reign of Terror (3:51)
The sky is on fire burning black gold
Eyes of the west turn to east
Driven by greed and an urge to destroy
Merciless killing your own

Slave to the power a slave to the gold
Ruthlessly ruling the east
Your reing of terror must come to an end
Fighting your unholy war

[Pre-chorus:]
Now you will pay we'll charge you our way
Sooner or later we'll get you
Don't try to hide in your holes underground
Just like an insect we'll smoke you right out

[Chorus:]
Night time primetime
Ancient legacy of crime
One day we will make you pay for

Night time primetime
Law and order pays the fine
Genocide you cannot justify

Chaos in east disorder in west
Desert storm is a go
Fighters are launched from the carriers at sea
Infantry coming your way

Armoured brigades engaging their lines
Regain control of black gold
Your reign of terror will come to an end
Forcing you out of control

Countdown to death we're coming for you
Making our way through the desert
Soon you will pay for the pain that you caused
Captured or dead you will cause no more
Harm

[Chorus]

Feet after feet mile after mile
Allies regaining control
Your cities in ruins a people in need
Still you go on as before

Feet after feet mile after mile
Allies returning the land
Hide underground as the coward you are
One day we're coming for you

[Pre-chorus]
[Chorus]
3. Panzer Battalion (5:09)
Under this sun no shadows will fall
Piercing our eyes as we charge
An armoured battalion on course to the east
Closing the end of it's march

This time we're here to finish a job
Started a decade ago
Driving the animals out of their holes
To bury them 6 feet below
Armoured tanks of mass destruction
Killers in the east
Rats who dares to stand before us
Feel our guns go live

[Chorus:]
Death in the shape of a panzer battalion
Insect of terror don't run face your fate like a
Man cannot outrun our panzer battalion

Thousands of tons of armour and guns
Making it's way through the sand
Our panzer battalion is back for revenge
Artillery sweeping the land

First strike is ours no mercy is shown
There's rivers of blood in our track
Breaking their waves of defence with our tanks
Infantry watching our back

Blow their SAM sites clear for air strike
Ready for the storm
Minefields swept there's no surrender
Feel our napalm burn

[Chorus x2]

Under this sun no shadows will fall
Piercing our eyes as we charge
An armoured battalion on course to the east
Has reached the end of it's march

Armoured tanks of mass destruction
Killers in the east
Rats who dares to stand before us
Feel our guns go live

Panzer battalion
Insect of terror don't run face your fate like a man
Panzer battalion
4. Wolfpack (5:55)
To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and Ingham
Leading the bury west

Took the short way in
The long route back convoy 92
Bury Gleaves and Ingham leading
Tankers to the west
And upon the north Atlantic
Lies the silence of the seas
On a quietst night in the darkest hour
The kriegsmarine appear

Above the surface it seems quiet and calm
Deep down below the wolfpack lurks

[Chorus:]
To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and Ingham
Leading the bury west
In their own track came the wolfpack
Gleaves led the conwoy
Into the hornets nest

At the crack of dawn the second day
Bury stands in flames
Half the convoy sunk or disabled
Heading back to shore
But below the north Atlantic
On the bottom of the sea
On the second night in the darkest hour
The kriegsmarine return

The wolfpack surface for a second time
To make the convoy face it's fate

[Chorus]

Under fire under water
May 42 when
Bury did fail the test
To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading them into death

569 makes the contact and lead them
U-94 scores a kill in the dark
124 sinking 4 in 2 approaches
406 suffers failure on launch [x2]

In their own track came the wolfpack
Gleaves led the conwoy
Into the hornets nest

To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and Ingham
Leading the bury west
In their own track came the wolfpack
Gleaves led the conwoy
Into the hornets nest

Under fire under water
May 42 when
Bury did fail the test
To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading them into death
5. Counterstrike (3:48)
Kickstart fighter launch
Throttle set to full
Speed king race to win
Afterburners roaring

Ghostlike counterstrike
Takes them by surprise

Score 307
Israelis rule the heaven

Jordan attacks Israel crush that
Futile attempt
Control Jerusalem

Drive back surprise attack
Take the western wall
Next day make them pay
Over river Jordan

Syria last in line
Head for golan heights
Strike without a warning
See the Syria forces falling

Syria attacks Israel crushed their
Lines of defence
Ruling golan heights

[Chorus:]
6 days of fire 1 day of rest
June 67 taught them respect
Control Jerusalem

3 nations fallen in 6 days of war
Traitorous neighbours
Received as deserved
Under the sun in the dust of the war
1 nation standing stronger than before

First into Egypt and
Sent them to hell
Then turned their forces to Jordan
Climb up the mountains
Where Syria awaits
Break them in hours
Protect holy land

[Chorus x2]
6. Stalingrad (5:18)
Fresh from Moscow
Over Volga came to comrades aid
City in despair
Almost crushed by the führers army

Oh it's colder than hell
Hitlers forces advancing

The sound of mortars
The music of death
A grand symphony

See your friends fall hear them
Pray to the god your country denies
Every man dies alone and when your
Time comes you will know that it's time

Stalins fortress on fire
Is this madness or hell

[Chorus:]
The sound of the mortars
The music of death
We're playing the devils symphony
Our violins are guns
Conducted from hell

Oh Stalingrad
Mratnimiat

Are you playing
Do you follow the conductors lead
No one knows you
No one cares about a single violin

Play the score of the damned
Know the devil within

[Chorus]
7. Into the Fire (3:25)
Sent from home overseas
And into the unknown
Barely landed in the jungle
Sent on first patrol

Sundown darkness falls
Dig in for the night
Ambushed in the dawn they came
The jungle's alive

I feel my fire starts to burn
The heat controlling my mind
Berserk a savage running wild
Within me the beast starts to roar

[Chorus:]
Now I'm ready to strike
A creature of the night
Into the fire
The flame of napalm strike

Sarge's down I'm in charge
Vc's everywhere
Overrun yet order airstrike
Condemned us all to burn

Napalm from above
Burning friend and foe
Chaos on the battlefield
The jungle's on fire

This place it's driving me insane
Napalm it's burning us all
This fight no man will live to tell
Within me my blood starts to boil

[Chorus]

From above the airstrike came
And it burned the world below
Napalm falling from the sky
And it leaves no man alive

I feel my fire starts to burn
The heat controlling my mind
Napalm it's burning us alive
Within me the beasts final roar

[Chorus]
8. Purple Heart (5:07)
When we signed up for the army
To a rangers company
Armed with M16's
Straight into the war

Then we served under the banner
Clad in US stars an stripes
And on moonless nights
We marched for endless miles

[Chorus:]
Once we were soldiers
Once we were young
We have found our peace
We've seen the end

Fallen in war
We belong to history
Fallen in war
Sleep 6 feet below

Hearts of the brave
Cannot bring me back to life
Fallen in war
Still brothers in arms

We have fought in distant conflict
And for all to many years
Seen our friends go down
Wounded dead or lost

Know that peace comes at a high price
It may take a thousand lives
And a deep belief
Sacrifice of men

[Chorus]

Shining heart beats no more
Buried deep deep in cold earth
Shallow grave in my motherland
Here I stay in darkness forever

Fallen in war
We belong to history
Fallen in war
Sleep 6 feet below

Hearts of the brave
Cannot bring me back to life
Fallen in war
Still brothers in arms
9. Metal Machine (4:22)
I have a phobia
A fear of the dark
Afraid to shoot strangers
The animal talks

Guns scare me shitless
But love gun's my friend

The sentinel's coming
But is this the end

Riding on this crazy train
I'm going paranoid
Watch me lose my mind
And break the law

I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
I'm a metal machine
the rainbow in the dark is shining

I'm only metal machine (Note, no, it's not a metal machine)
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
I'm a metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky

Is this st. anger
The ultimate sin
Or have I really
A black knight within

The gates of Babylon
Are open and wide
Shout at the devil
There's nowhere to hide

Fighting for the world to keep
The wild child in it's cage
Broke my metal heart
Against the wall

I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
I'm only metal machine
the rainbow in the dark is shining
I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
Come touch my metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky
