Text

1.

He sat in a room, in a square the color of blood
He’d rule the whole world, if there was a way that he could
He’d sit and he’d stare at the minarets on top of the towers
For he was the beast, as he hatched his new plans to gain power

Kehrreim

And the snow fell, covering the dreams and ideals
And the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels
And the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival
And the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rival

2.

They took the old roads, that Napoleon had taken before
They fought as the forces of light against the darkness in a holy war
One day they were looking around at the sun shining on the cornflowers
The next day they were freezing to death in the snow and the ice cold showers

Kehrreim

And the snow fell, covering the dreams and ideals
And the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels
And the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival
And the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rival

3.

Then came the deadly road back on the steps of their retreat
The cold racked their bodies, but worse was the pain of defeat
Many people who had hailed them once now turned and looked away
These people now knew that the beast was on his way

Kehrreim

And the snow fell, covering the dreams and ideals
And the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels
And the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival
And the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rival

4.

You finally came back to the borders of your Fatherland
Now enemies came, traitors everywhere at hand
Many people who had fought and died, knowing that they had to win
Well yet still it sickens my heart to see the picture of the red flag in Berlin
