lyrics

Crimson Snow

-verse 1-

Warrants nailed into splintered posts,
Hungry peasants hunt down the Corsican.
Bonaparte, has eluded them again
Mistaken identity, they have the wrong man!

-verse 2-

Retreating from Moscow, through the bitter cold
Plundering villages, struggling to survive
Sleeping in barns, praying through the night
Chattering teeth reveal their plight

-verse 3-

Weary footprints stamp the Russian snow
Far away from family, their heads bowed low
Buttons crumbled in the biting chill
Tattered cloaks, Soggy boots

-verse 4-

Visions of grandeur all dissolved,
French ambition, a dismembered fool,
Long ghastly trail, snaking through the dark
Cossacks pursue them like starving hounds

Chorus

As I lay bleeding, dying in this cold
I look back on my life so tattered and torn
Now as my weary life draws toward the end
I'll take my last breath as I gaze at the crimson snow

-verse 5-

Splintered wagons abandoned in the ice
Menacing flames dart towards the bridge
Flickering mosaic burns against the sky,
Silhouettes of death piling up high

-verse 6-

Bulging eyes staring at defeat
Screaming thousands, into the river they sink!
Panicked horses all mowed down
Nostrils flaring as they drown

Chorus

As I lay bleeding, dying in this cold
I look back on my life so tattered and torn
Now as my weary life draws toward the end
I'll take my last breath as I gaze at the crimson snow
