"Endzeit" as written by and Maik Weichert....
Ah!

Nichts, einfach nichts
Nichts wird dieses Herz auslöschen
Und niemand, einfach niemand
Niemand wird diese Front brechen
Wir sind, wir sind, wir sind die Letzten
Wir sind, wir sind der
Wir sind der letzte Widerstand

Wir kämpfen bis zum Letzten

Gesteuert von deinem Hass, hervorgerufen in uns
Niemand wird aufgeben
Ein Sturm wird die Stille brechen
Dieser Sturm wird die Stille brechen

Nichts, einfach nichts
Nichts wird dieses Herz auslöschen
Wir sind, wir sind der
Wir sind der letzte Widerstand

Diese Rache ist Gerechtigkeit
Und Gerechtigkeit wird gemacht werden
Euer Ende ist unser Triumph
Und der Tag wird kommen
Eine Schreckensherrschaft, ein Leben voller Horror
Nichts wird übrigbleiben

Ein Versprechen an die (und nicht deine) Gefallenen,
Wir zwingen sie, unseren Schmerz zu fühlen
Ein Versprechen an die Verbrecher,
Ihr werdet nie wieder aufstehen

Ah!

Wir nehmen es zurück, wir nehmen es alles zurück
Wir nehmen es zurück, Wir nehmen alles zurück

Diese Rache ist Gerechtigkeit
Und Gerechtigkeit wird gemacht werden
Euer Ende ist unser Triumph
Und der Tag wird kommen
Ein Versprechen an die Gefallenen,
Wir zwingen sie, unseren Schmerz zu fühlen
Ein Versprechen an die Verbrecher,
Ihr werdet nie wieder aufstehen

Nichts, einfach nichts
Nichts wird dieses Herz auslöschen
Und niemand, einfach niemand
Niemand wird diese Front brechen
Wir sind, wir sind, wir sind die Letzten
Wir sind, wir sind der
Wir sind der letzte Widerstand

    General CommentWell, maybe it has to do with facism or religion but I think it refers to politics.
    First you have to know the person there next to Bush, Mr. Schäuble.
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
    Then you'll recognize that it has a lot do with losing civil rights and turning Germany into a surveillance state.
    Endzeit: "To me this is the soundtrack to when our governments try to take ALL of our rights away and we, the people, take back our rights by force"
    Thats what it's to me, too.
    Anyway, I love this song and the video.

    General Comment"Endzeit" translates as something like the apocalypse... the time when everything comes to an end... a time where no escape is possible anymore, you have to face your guilt and stand up for what you believe in.

    I may be totally wrong, but to me these lyrics sound like a call to arms for everyone who means to stand up against fascism. Which is terribly on the rise again, in Germany.

    "A promise to the felons, you'll never rise again" - the Nazis and Neo-Nazis who haunt Germany again will be fought back, they'll have no chance to dominate this country ever again.

    As I said, I might be totally wrong. But Heaven Shall Burn are really big in terms af antifascist resistance activities, and (neo-) fascists really are a big problem especially in Eastern Germany, where the band is coming from... so to me, this interpretation makes sense.

    Apart from that: a fucking great song ;) Totally blows you away.

    General CommentThis song could be linked to present events taking place in the political world. If you are aware of our surroundings, you can see that slowly our rights are being taken away via the Patriot Act, et all. To me this is the soundtrack to when our governments try to take ALL of our rights away and we, the people, take back our rights by force. The government serves the people, not the other way around.

    General CommentAs already mentioned by todaystomorrow ENDZEIT (end time) refers to the last days of earth. But I wouldnt go as far as todaystomorrow and say this song only aims for the destruction of fascism. It might though - in an indirect way. But you gotta keep in mind that Iconoclast (the album) tells the story of warriors - 123 warriors avenging God for he was killed by all of us..
    And this song's about their rise. They rise and make us pay for all our crimes..(which includes fascism)

    Anyway: the story is written down in the booklet..for anyone who bought the album ;)

    The track itself is just pure fucking awesomeness, especially the fade from the intro into Endzeit. Couldnt get any better.

    General Commentto me this song has alt of meaning
    they sound satanic but there not
    i believe that this song endzeit (end days) has to do with more of tha end times stated in revaltions
    like how we are tha final resistance and that we have to try to stand up to tha devil in his rein of darkness over tha earth
    and that its a statment showin how his rein of so called terror will only last for so long , due to gos return
    cause tha band seems anti chrish but there not
    there name seems offensive but its not meant to be
    like there "heaven shall burn" is refferred to people false interpretation of "heaven" and that that false interpretation should burn
    that we should open our eyes and see things for what they truely are
    to find tha real meaning of "heaven"
    so i think that this so called "death metl, anti-god band" isn't evil at all and that its a way for them to try to reach to those who aren;t "believers" in god

    General Comment"To me this is the soundtrack to when our governments try to take ALL of our rights away and we, the people, take back our rights by force" AGREE.

    It seems to me like this is true, and that the government are trying to take away to many rights, like mentioned above, so "terrorists" are fighting back; "we are the final resistance" "Driven by your hate evoked in us" "This vengeance is justice and justice will be done
    Your end is our triumph and the day will come".

    General Commentthe video supports dmbrngr's interpretation. but there is another one: conservation or the fight against the exploitation of earth's nature. the "in a dying world, we are the final resistance" shirts support this second way to interprete this song. i think both meanings fit - that makes the song even better!

    General CommentIn essence, this song is about bringing down corrupt governments and rising up in some sort of anarchist revolution. A lot of melodeath bands have similar ideologies, Arch Enemy for example. Apparently, the band stated that there's an underlying abstract concept on the "Iconoclast" albums that revolves around God being killed, and his followers hunting down and killing his murderers. But I suspect that's just a metaphor of some kind.
