"We Burn" as written by Joakim Broden and Par Sundstrom....
I've had a vision its clear to me now
I know what has to be done
Different religions cannot share a land
A plague and I have the cure

Chase them down, let them suffer in pain
Dig them down, they´ll be gone for a while
Evidence lost

We burn
Plunder and rape
Show them no mercy, just burn
Flesh turn to ash

Inspired by deeds that were done long ago
I know what has to be done
Filth of my land must be washed clean and pure
Now let the cleansing begin

Genocide?
Who will drag me to court?
There´s no crime if you do not get caught
I am the law. We burn

Privates, sergeants and generals hear
It's our chance we've been waiting too long
Your orders are: to start to burn

    MemoryIt probably is about the break up of Yugoslavia...But people bellow me cant speek such nacionalistic lyes since they probably were not there to experience it...

    MemoryYou know I rly love listening to Sabaton but sometimes they just happen to annoy me, this would be one of those times.

    The lyrics might indeed be pointed towards civil-war in old Yugoslavia and yes it was indeed a civil war, the worst kind of war, but that will not make the lyrics any more true...

    The one-sided portrayal of conflict is never right...And in this case, well, the lyrics couldn't be more off the mark, those that lived in the old Yugoslavia and especially those that happened to live in Bosnia during the conflict know what I'm talking about...

    It will take decades to fix everything that was destroyed during those years and I don't talk about material things.

    Songs like this are not something that helps the process but do the exact opposite...

    My OpinionIn my opinion this song is about the Yugoslavian War in general, since the Bosnian Genocide is a part of the conflict.
