The track "Wehrmacht" is about the Nazi war machine and the effects of the Third Reich on an ordinary
German soldier..
Pulled into war
to serve a vision
That's supposed to last
A thousand years
Part of a machine
Unstoppable as merciless
As tidal waves

Were they the victims of the time
Or proud parts of lager goals ?
Propaganda of the Reich
masterful machine !

Time and again
the battle rages on
Beyond the gates of misery
As casualties rise
and millions die around them
Did they see it all ?

Crazy mad men on a leash
Or young men who lost their way?
Grand illusions of the Reich
May seem real at times

Panzers on a line
Form the Wehrmacht's spine
Lethal grand design

What about the men executing orders?
[x2]

Ad victoriam
Ex machina
Non sibi sed patriae
(1)
[x2]

Pulled into war
to serve a vision
That just didn't last
A thousand years..
Part of a machine
Though stoppable as merciless
As tidal waves

Crazy mad men on a leash
Or young men who lost their way?
Grand illusions of the Reich
May seem real at times

Panzers on a line
Form the Wehrmacht's spine
Lethal grand design

What about the men executing orders ?!

Panzers on a line
Form the Wehrmacht's spine
Lethal grand design

What about the men.. !!?
Notes

(1) This mean:
To victory!
Out of the machine
Not for self but for the Fatherland


This latin phrase is engraved in the doors of the United States Naval Academy chapels. It's also the motto of USS Halyburton..
