"Firestorm" as written by Joakim Broden and Par Sundstrom....
But a kingdom that has once been destroyed
Can never come back into being nor can
The dead ever be brought back to life

Morning saw an air strike
The sirens scream out loud
Callings on the radio
Of what is coming
Appearing on the radar
A threat from over seas
Planes on the horizon
Casts shadows on the ground

Bringers of destruction
Are ravaging the land
Fury of the bombers
A force to reckon
Sets the world on fire
Then turns to strike again
Flames are burning higher
The bombs keep falling

Guns are blazing
As the sky is turning red
Better run to cover
You'll be quick or be dead

Burn burn
Rage of the heavens
Burn burn
Death from above
Die die
Merciless killing
Burn burn
Death from above

Carpet bombing cities
And grinding them to dust
Abel men and women
Will all be victims
Everyone will suffer
The wake of their attack
Bombers show no mercy
A land in ruins
Homes have turned to rubble
And the airstrike has been approved
Tasting their destruction
Fear the black wings of death

Burn burn
Rage of the heavens
Burn burn
Death from above
Die die
Merciless killing
Burn burn

Nothing remains
Cities in ruins
Return to dust
Over the hills
Rise from the ashes
And fight

Aa guns are blazing
As the sky is turning red
Better run to cover
You'll be quick or be dead

Burn burn
Rage of the heavens
Burn burn
Death from above
Die die
Merciless killing
Burn burn
Death from above

    General CommentIt is about the bombings in WWII, more specifically the firebombings of major German cities such as that of Dresden.

    General CommentNothing specific, but i think it's about the bombing raids in WW2, mostly between Germany and the UK.

    General CommentHmmm... the way the vocalist says the line "be quick or be dead" reminds me of the Iron Maiden song. Given their propensity to reference other metal songs/bands in songs like Metal Crue and Metal Machine, I wonder if this is deliberate?
