1648 Lyrics

5. 1648 (3:54)
Swedish:

Europa söker fred, och ingen annan stred
Generaler ifrån norr till verket skred
Ond
De plundrar
Bråd
De våldtar
Död
Se hele Böhmen står i brand
En stad står kvar

En här måste mätta sin mun
Till strid
(Genom strid)
Den plundrar sin väg
Ingen frid
(Ingen frid)
När Königsmarck går fram
Som ingen annan man
Som ingen annan kan

Brand å mord, ty Böhmen skall falla
Königsmarcks lag, låt den stiftas i Prag
Dränkt i blod, som svenskarna slår sig fram
Gör onda dåd
Ger ingen nåd

Erövrat stadens borg, en masslakt utan sorg
När de plundrat, bränt och skändat/skövlat på dess torg
Ond
Till märgen
Bråd
Till slakten
Död
En står å vänter över bron
Staden står kvar

På Karlsbron tog stridslyckan slut
För män
(För de män)
Som kämpat så hårt
Genom eld
De plundrat och gått fram
Som ingen annan man
Som ingen annan kan

Slaget om staden vid Vltavas strand
Där kriget bröt ut och där det tog slut
I trettio år har kriget krävt sin rätt
För de soldaten som svor eden
För de åtta miljoner som har mist sitt liv
Finns det ingen tröst i freden


English:

While Europe speak of peace, all other battles cease
There's a man who aims for more than he can reach
Blood,
All over
Prague
On fire
Burn
All of Bohemia set ablaze
Stand on their own

The road to the city has been blocked
Denied
(They're denied)
To enter the gates
Though they tried
(Though they tried)
When Prague was called to arms
They fought them on the bridge
Their freedom was at stake

Stand and fight, the city is burning
Königsmarck lost, stopped him at Karluv Most.
Stained by blood, their brothers die side by side
Did what they could
Died where they stood

Their city has been besieged, all hell on Prague unleashed
As the cannons crush the walls, the city shakes
Fear
Is spreading
Hate
Increasing
Death
And pain is all that Sweden brought
Rise and strike back

The walls of the city has been breached
Reclaimed
(They're reclaimed)
On that very night
Unsustained
(Unsustained)
They did it on their own
They fought them on the bridge
Their freedom was at stake

Unconquered city on Vltavas shore
Start of the conflict and end of the war
Unconquered city on Vltavas shore
Is protected by its people
And thirty years ago the war begun
It has returned to where it started
