The German defeat in the frozen city of Stalingrad was the turning point that led to the Red Army advancing all the way into Germany. They killed, looted, and raped on a scale not seen...
Listen to me son and I’ll tell you I was a girl in Berlin
I still seem young, but I’ll tell you how the Russians came in
We were like sisters, Mother and I
She was the older, crazed and resigned
I was the younger, naive enough to survive
Some of us got children, some of us got sick
We were at the mercy of the enemy.

The first pack of broken dogs to chew through the frozen wall of Stalingrad
Drone through the Fatherland silently insane
The next pack were green, and raged like a flood
Closing in on my Berlin, and the smell of blood
Holding me down, facing the light
I laid on my back with all my might.

Lord God, let the walls melt into the door
Let my skin grow o’er and heal my sore

I heard that our brothers and fathers did the same on their side
I heard that all brothers and all fathers do the same during war time
I was a child, I was on the wrong side
I was broken in by broken men with draining eyes
War sleeps deep in a man, long after guns are gone
He loses care for small things, and I was a small thing
