Sabaton – Fields of Verdun | Lyrics

Lyrics “Fields of Verdun” – Sabaton

As the drum roll started on that day
Heard a hundred miles away
A million shells were fired
And the green fields turned to grey

The bombardment lasted all day long
Yet the forts were standing strong
Heavily defended
Now the trap has been sprung
And the battle has begun

Descend into darkness
Three hundred three days
Below the sun

Fields of Verdun
And the battle has begun
No way to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Under the gun
They will be done

And the judgement has begun
No way to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Fields of Verdun

Though a million shells have scarred the land
No one has the upper hand
From the ground above to trenches
Where the soldiers make their stand

As the trenches slowly turn to mud
And then quickly start to flood
Death awaits in every corner
As they die in the mud
Fill the trenches with blood

Descend into darkness
Three hundred three days
Below the sun

Fields of Verdun
And the battle has begun
No way to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Under the gun
They will be done

And the judgement has begun
No way to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Fields of Verdun

Fields of execution
Turned to wasteland from the grass
Thou shalt go no further
It was said, they shall not pass
The spirit of resistance
And the madness of the war
So, go ahead
Face the led
Join the dead
Though you die
Where you lie
Never asking why

Descend into darkness
Three hundred three days
Below the sun versuri.online

Fields of Verdun
And the battle has begun
No way to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Under the gun
They will be done

And the judgement has begun
No way to run
Father and son
Fall one by one
Fields of Verdun…
