Coat of Arms tracks

Lyrics


1. COAT OF ARMS

At dawn envoy 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 6 days of rain dropped by invaders bombraid 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 their 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 300 men left a pride to uphold : freedom or 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

Send them over the waves,
Our sentinels.
They report in the news,
Position of our foes.

This battlefield´s been choosen, 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

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

We'll meet at Midway
(To win the fight, tactics are crucial) Naval war

3. UPRISING

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 !

(All the streetlights in the city broken many years ago
Break the curfew, hide in sewers Warsaw it's time to rise now)
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
Warszawo walcz !




4. SCREAMING EAGLES

Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artilley pounding
Wrath of the nazis cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

Alone
Alone

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 to 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, artilley pounding
Wrath of the nazis cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

Alone
Alone

Dig your own foxholes or dig your own grave
The storm is about to begin
The seige 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, artilley pounding
Wrath of the nazis 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
Offered surrender - declined

Nuts, the generals word echo clear
Nuts, the nazi's shall hear

Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artilley pounding
Wrath of the nazis cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artilley pounding
Wrath of the nazis cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone




5. THE FINAL SOLUTION

Country in depression, nation in despair
One man seeking reasons everywhere
Growing hate and anger, the Führers orders were precise
Who was to be blamed and pay the price

Wicked propaganda turning neighbours into foes
Soldiers of the third reich searching homes
And then their former friends are wathching as they are round up one by one
Times of persecution has just begun

Ever since it started on Kristallnacht '38
When liberty died and truth was denied
Sent away on trains, sent on a one way trip to hell
Enter the gates, Auswitch 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 rising hate and anger, the Führers order still apply
Who was to be blamed and sent to die

Ever since it started on Kristallnacht '38
When liberty died and truth was denied
Sent away on trains, sent on a one way trip to hell
Enter the gates, Auswitch 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

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




6. ACES IN EXILE

In the skies above the isle, Aces in exile prevail

From near and far they arrived, joined the force
Ready to serve the allied command
Sent into training though they already earned their wings
They were ready fly, they were fit for the fight

Once in the air, the battle begins
They have proven their worth, now they fly for revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly over foreign land
Let their story be heard, tell of 303rd
Fighter pilots from Poland in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Even at night shadows cover the ground
And the fighting goes on from dusk until dawn
With the claw of the reich with the claw of the eagle
They were ready to fly, they were ready to die

Up in the air the battle goes on
They have proven their worth, now they have their revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly over foreign land
Tell their story again, tell of 310
Men from Czechoslovakia in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Over the battlefield brave men long way from home
Few are the chosen ones sent to the sky to die
Over the battlefield brave men long way from home
Few are the chosen ones sent to the sky to die

Fly, it echoes in history
Turning the tide in the heavens above

Fighter pilots in exile fly over foreign land
When the battle has been won, tell of 401
Fighter pilots from Canada in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

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

Fighter pilots in exile !




7. SABOTEURS

Dropped onto a world of ice, a plateau of frozen lakes
A nazi place of doom in their sights

Trained in camps on scottish heights, to commando saboteurs
The mission of their lives lies ahead

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

Warrior soul
They sign the book of history, they played a leading role
To win the second war

Allied time was running short, they would race against the bomb
And as hours turn to days, time pass slow

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 sign the book of history, they played a leading role
To win the second war

Heroes of the telemark carry viking blood in veins
Warriors of the northern land, they live forever more
Heroes of the telemark carry viking blood in veins
Warriors of the northern land, they live forever more

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

Warrior soul

Warrior soul
They sign the book of history, they played a leading role
To win the second war

Warrior soul
They sign the book of history, they played a leading role
To win the second war




8. WEHRMACHT

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 larger 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 madmen 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 ?
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
Ad victoriam
Ex machina
Non sibi sed patriae

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 madmen 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 ?
Panzers on a line form the wehrmacht's spine
Lethal grand design
What about the men ?




9. WHITE DEATH

Almost night, a crimson horizon painting thousand lakes red
As your army approach from the east, a hunter is switching his prey
All alone, a man with his gun wanders into the wild
Tracks you down, you cannot hide once he is on to your trail

Enter 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 has broken, snow once white turned to red
Blood red snow tells what happened last night, 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 embody the sisu of finns
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

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
(Hundreds 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

You're in for surprise, you're in for a shock
In london town streets when there's darkness and fog
I'm going down, all the way down
I'm 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

(Abandoned land come on in child take my hand)
Hear a rising force
(Watch the damned, watch the damned, they're gonna break their chains)
Through the night you can hear them

Twisting you mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me you can't see a thing
Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
Blood on your face you big disgrace

A strand of silver hanging through the sky
Touching more than you can see
Appears like a wonder without any move
Gonna get close, closer to you

(Abandoned land come on in child take my hand)
Hear a rising force
(Watch the damned, watch the damned, they're gonna break their chains)
All aboard

(Abandoned land come on in child take my hand)
Hear a rising force
(Watch the damned, watch the damned, they're gonna break their chains)
Through the night
(Abandoned land come on in child take my hand)
Hear a rising force
(Watch the damned, watch the damned, they're gonna break their chains)
Through the night you can hear them
