lyrics

Standing among the desolate ruins
The sky filled with mortar fire
I am crowned in death
Watching the darkness descend
The flames of this holocaust
Suffocating in the stench of flesh
The horrors of the human mind
All are manifested here for
Death is all around me,
As i crawl on these bloody fields
where hell has arrived with its demons
The freezing cold our worst enemy
Or is it insanity which grows ever near
As i see the frozen corpses of former men
Death begins to feel like a familiar spirit
I pray for death, i pray for life
I know not which is worse

When death was our companion
All life lost its meaning
The screams of the burning dead
Echo through my nightmares

For i have died a thousand times
Only to be born again
I'm forever trapped in this hell
The old men proclaim glory
To die for the fatherland
I see only the living dead
And the sweet release of death
Glory is for the truly insane
I saw the beast raised up
And to him was given atrocities
By men whom i knew from childhood
Murder and rape, violence and hate
All for a belief, justified in deceit
Driven to insane laughter by
The harrowing, i became a coward
Descending into the loving arms of madness

When death was our companion
All life lost its meaning
The screams of the burning dead
Echo through my nightmares

The darkness spread like wildfire
Faces of men forever burned
Forgotten souls given to the void
I died there eventhough i lived
I died there with my brothers!
I died there with my brothers!
