    Sold Out

lyrics

In these days the fuse is burning
Slow decay of peacetime
To the south a beast of vengeance
Near to the east is the hungry wolf
I puff my pipe in the sunset and feel the warmth it provides
A chilling breeze like an omen of wintertime tells me we’re near the fall

This war of partition, like wolves at the slaughter
Ripping limb from limb in a frenzy, flesh and bone pulled apart
You see the odds stacked against you, this time there’s no way out
Prussia’s rise to higher standing will fucking burn to a backwater state

No! As days of war go slowly by, I feel the weight of man’s design
A plan to win, to keep our heads above the tide, to take it all one day at a time

Let there be light
Let there be nothing to shield the blood from heaven
Es werde licht
Es werde nicht, um das Blut vom Himmel abschirmen

For years we’ve suffered
For years we’ve sacrificed our sons and brothers to defend our very being
Nobody hears the cries of the common man who suffers hell to come
Fire! We will push on through smoke and chaos swirling round our horses’ feet
No! This can’t be right; we’ll guide the fight from safety here at this climax
And so they’re broken, but reunited—shattering all that gaze them hell
We’re fleeing on the run

Nothing for me, I plunge my sword into the ground and make a stand
Even if I die, I’ll fight alone
You see the masses, don’t lose your mind
We have to flee into the fray, into the womb of everything we love

Despite my loyalty and all I’ve given
The battle’s lost and hope is fading like a nightmare

This is not a simple tale
We are heavy hearted souls
When one speaks to you of death, never trust the words they say lest you speak unto a soldier
Our flesh is of the earth
Not just paintings on the wall, not just stories that you hear

And we stand naked, so exposed
Constant fire, never safe
Bullets kill the men beside me
Valor here means simply not running
All is gray, I have to run!
Quell your fears, we have to stand
Keep formation, no matter what
Raise your muskets, unleash hell!

Madness thrives in empty hearts
I will overcome my grief and carry on
And fuel the furnace of in my heart

Prussians all together as one
United underneath the flag you mended
Russians furious and still divided
Elizabeth soon will die in rotten linen

Struggle in a storm to catch your breath
Courage never goes unrewarded

Seven years we’ve fought and failed to win
And seven more will come to pass if you don’t learn to yield
Never will Austria forget its pains
And never will you forget the Iron Kingdom’s wrath

A soldier sacrifices for the common good
His health and limbs, his strength and life
He has the right to claim some benefits for those he fought and died for
His pain and screams, his blood and sweat
There is no higher price

As the raven flies a tear comes to my eye
Weathered the storm and wait upon the dawn
To puff my pipe again and have another drink
Duality of man will be the ghost that haunts our race
