"Shadow Soldiers" as written by and Mark Tornillo Peter Baltes....
So cold and lonely it seems so long since someone was here
Following the shadows, with the sun till it disappears
Thousands of stone white crosses, a formation for all to see
With flags and flames, the ranks and the names of those who died to be free

The fire remains in our hearts all of our dreams made new
Etched in the flames of freedom, we're living on thru you

We're the shadow soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all

Taken too soon from the lives we loved a misery I can not explain
Only when we feel your presence are we sure we did not die in vein

The fire remains in our hearts all of our dreams made new
Etched in the flames of freedom, are these words, oh so true
We're living on thru you

We're the shadow soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all

The fire remains in our hearts all of our dreams made new
Etched in the flames of freedom, we're living on thru you

We're the shadow soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all

Shallow soldiers, laid to rest standing tall
Shadow soldiers, in freedom you live
That's why we've given it all

    General CommentThis is about the ghosts of the soldiers that gave their lives so that we can enjoy our freedoms. They feel that their sacrifices where worth it as long as we remember and acknowledge them.

    And yet another outstanding trademark solo courtesy of Wolf Hoffman. The man is a master melodist.
