Skrewdriver - Night Trains Lyrics

Night trains, filling up, on a railway station in Berlin
On the way to the Eastern Front, as winter was closing in
Young soldiers who were on their way to a freezing, living hell
For victory's dreams had faded now, amongst explosions and deadly shells

(chorus)
Night trains, moving out
Moving on, to the distant east
Pride and love for the Fatherland
As they sought the road to victory
They choose to fight against all odds, against a foe without a god
They fought for good, for all mankind, along death's roads they bravely trod
Marching on to a fiery fate, their courage it did not fail
To a land of fire and ice they advanced up danger's trails

(chorus)

instrumental break
(chorus)

As the they marched into the icy wastes, there was no end in their sights
And all they had was their comradeship, and the bitter cold of endless nights
Well so many died in graves of ice, never again to see their Fatherland
As their blood was spilt, so died their dreams, before the true ideal they took their stand

(chorus) x2
