"Last Dying Breath" as written by and Paer Sundstroem Joakim Broden....
War begun, the kaiser has come
Day or night, the shells keep falling
Overrun, but never outdone
Street to street, denying defeat

Soldiers of the serbian army
keep your heads held high
Overrun, you fall one by one
For Belgrade and the Fatherland

Soldiers, heroes, die for your land
Your lives are gone, erased by your command

Until your last dying breath

Overrun, you're under the gun
Day or night, the shells kept falling
Sound the drum, the great war has come
Show no fear, the ending is near

A final charge, to face the fire
falling one by one
Major calls, the white city falls
Belgrade's streets are stained by blood

In haste, our lives are erased
Forward to glory for king and country

Defend the honour of Belgrade
Forward to glory, to face your fate at last

    Song MeaningThe courageous defence of the Serbian capital in 1915 is best described through the words of Major Gavrilovic's speech to his troops before the battle: "Soldiers, exactly at three o'clock the enemy is to be crushed by your fierce charge, destroyed by your grenades and bayonets. The honor of Belgrade, our capital, must not be stained. Soldiers! Heroes! The supreme command has erased our regiment from its records. Our regiment has been sacrified for the honour of Belgrade and the Fatherland. Therefore, you no longer need to worry about your lives: they no longer exist. So, forward to glory! For the king and the Fatherland! Long live the king! Long live Belgrade!"
