Rain drums the lifeless ground
Drops as cold as ice
The dawn's breaking, the trench a-shaking
Their fire hits us all around
And the siren cries
"Forward! Forward!" - We go into attack!

May today become the day
As I plunge into the grey
Lead is flying, all the signs are there
They all think that I am brave
The strongest link of our chain
But really I've gotta say that ain't how it's like

Closing in, not slowing down
Iron, fire blood
Our line's breaking and death a-taking
Our men from all around
Into the pools of mud
Forward, forward... There is no turning back!

May today become the day
As I plunge into the grey
Lead is flying, all the signs are there
They all think I am brave
The strongest link of our chain
But really I've gotta say that ain't how it's like

The fall back -calling as our soldiers keep falling
No, forward, forward! I am not turning back!

May today become the day
As I plunge into the grey
Lead is flying, all the signs are there
They all think that I am brave
The strongest link of our chain
But really I... just want a bullet between my eyes
Aim high

    General CommentThat was a really cool song.
    A full troop of fighters. One is always fighting, pushing forward and forward. As his friends are dropping he keep rushing and they all think that he's a hero, he's brave, he's strong and all he wants is to die.

    General CommentGreat song, (sorry for being rather random) but today I heard Bon Jovi's "Hey God" and realized the intro sounded exactly like this song's (from 0:16), except of course this is faster and heavier...0.o

    General CommentWow...Easily one of the best songs I've ever heard...
    To me, this song aims to the way you are told you have to live your life, and how it breaks down every single soul when the time comes to face reality...Basicly, the chorus is the part that tells the most..."May today become the day, as I plunge into the gray, lead is flying all the sings are here, they all think that I am brave, the strongest link of out chain..." Awesome, just perfect, so straight to the bone...Just so full of meanings
    Rock In Peace, Miika.
