Paschendale - Iron Maiden (鐵娘子)

In a foreign field he lay

 

Lonely soldier unknown grave

 

On his dying words he prays

 

Tell the world of Paschendale

 

Relive all that he's been through

Last communion of his soul

 

Rust your bullets with his tears

 

Let me tell you' bout his years

 

Laying low in a blood filled trench

Kill tim'til my very own death

On my face I can feel the falling rain

Never see my friends again

 

In the smoke in the mud and lead

Smell the fear and the feeling of dread

Soon be time to go over the wall

Rapid fire and the end of us all

 

Whistles shouts and more gun fire

Lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire

Battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb

Be reunited with my dead friends soon

Many soldiers eighteen years

Drown in mud no more tears

Surely a war no-one can win

Killing time about to begin

Home far away

 

From the war a chance to live again

 

Home far away

 

But the war no chance to live again

 

The bodies of ours and our foes

 

The sea of death it overflows

 

In no man's land God only knows

 

Into jaws of death we go

 

Crucified as if on a cross

 

Allied troops they mourn their loss

 

German war propaganda machine

Such before has never been seen

Swear I heard the angels cry

Pray to god no more may die

 

So that people know the truth

 

Tell the tale of Paschendale

 

Cruelty has a human heart

Every man does play his part

Terror of the men we kill

The human heart is hungry still

I stand my ground for the very last time

Gun is ready as I stand in line

Nervous wait for the whistle to blow

Rush of blood and over we go

 

Blood is falling like the rain

 

It's crimson cloak unveils again

 

The sound of guns can't hide their shame

 

And so we die on Paschendale

 

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire

Running straight at the cannon fire

 

Running blind as I hold my breath

Say a prayer symphony of death

 

As we charge the enemy lines

A burst of fire and we go down

 

I choke a cry but no-one hears

Fell the blood go down my throat

Home far away

 

From the war a chance to live again

 

Home far away

 

But the war no chance to live again

 

Home far away

 

From the war a chance to live again

 

Home far away

 

But the war no chance to live again

 

See my spirit on the wind

 

Across the lines beyond the hill

 

Friend and foe will meet again

 

Those who died at Paschendale
