Arch Enemy Tears Of The Dead Lyrics

Hideous crimes, atrocities

The slaughter of millions – beyond belief

Those were dark times, so different from now

The law of evil ruled our fatherland

I was but a pawn in their game

Why should I feel any guilt?

Still when I close, close my eyes

The words unfold, it all comes back

I can’t defy it, can’t deny it

I know it or be true

In my sleep – they come to haunt me

They know it to be true

Tears of the dead

We are all on the turning wheel of fate

A young man, standing proud in uniform

I never stopped to hesitate

Until it was far to late

My hands are soiled, covered in blood

Stains that never wash away

Their hollow eyes…

Confronting me – Judging me

Now an old man, at the end of my days

Contemplating – My life of sin

Living is never simple – the rosad is hard

I had no say – just a puppet in a sick play
