en livstid i krig

[swedish version:]

jag ser mig om och ser mitt hem fã¶rsvinna bort
min tid dã¤r hemma kã¤nns nu alldeles fã¶r kort
blott ungdom, knappt en man d㥠plikten kallade mig
om hag fã¥r se mitt hem igen det vet jag ej
bland frã¤nder frã¥n min by s㥠drog jag ut i strid
och vã¤rlden brann

fã¶r kriget det kan
fã¶rgã¶ra en man
jag ger mitt liv fã¶r mitt fosterland
men vem saknar mig?
s㥠se mig som den
en make, en vã¤n
fader och son som aldrig kommer hem
men vem sã¶rjer mig?

gick ut i strid fã¶r sverige, blev dã¶pt i blod
dã¤r ute vã¤ntar dã¶den, inte hjã¤ltemod
i fã¤lt dã¤r frã¤nder faller, hã¶rs ingen sã¥ng
utmanar vã¥ra ã¶den, ã¤nnu en gã¥ng

lã¥ngt hemifrã¥n
dã¶pas och d㶠i strid

och vã¤rlden brann

fã¶r kriget det kan
fã¶rgã¶ra en man
jag ger mitt liv fã¶r mitt fosterland
men vem saknar mig?
s㥠se mig som den
en make, en vã¤n
fader och son som aldrig kommer hem
men vem sã¶rjer mig?

och nã¤r min tid har runnit ut
vem bryr sig d�
de kã¤mpar pã¥
fã¥r en soldat ett vã¤rdig sl*t?
f㥠somna in
fã¶rsvinna bort
och aldrig vakna

fã¶r kriget det kan
fã¶rgã¶ra en man
jag ger mitt liv fã¶r mitt fosterland
men vem saknar mig?
s㥠se mig som den
en make, en vã¤n
fader och son som aldrig kommer hem
men vem sã¶rjer mig?

[english version:]

a lifetime of war

two ways to view the world so similar at times
two ways to rule the world to justify their crimes
by kings and queens young men are sent to die in war
their propaganda speaks those words been heard before

two ways to view the world brought europe down in flames
two ways to rule

has man gone insane?
a few will remain
who’ll find a way
to live one more day
through decades of war.
it spreads like disease,
there’s no sign of peace.
religion and creed
cause millions to bleed.
three decades of war.

from dawn to dawn they’re fighting,
die where they stand
the fog of war lies thick
when armies scorch the land.
when all of europe’s burning
what can be done?
they’ve been to war a decade,
two more to come

long way from home
dã¶pas och d㶠i strid
lifetime at war

has man gone insane?
a few will remain
who’ll find a way
to live one more day
through decades of war.
it spreads like disease,
there’s no sign of peace.
religion and creed
cause millions to bleed.
three decades of war.

when they face death they’re all alike
no right or wrong, rich or poor
no matter who they served before
good or bad, they’re all the same
rest side by side now

has man gone insane?
a few will remain
who’ll find a way
to live one more day
through decades of war.
it spreads like disease,
there’s no sign of peace.
religion and creed
cause millions to bleed.
three decades of war.

has man gone insane?
a few will remain
who’ll find a way
to live one more day
through decades of war.
it spreads like disease,
there’s no sign of peace.
religion and creed
cause millions to bleed.
three decades of war.
