The War to End All Wars

"Dreadnought"

A song dedicated to the massive battleship class Dreadnought and the naval conflict at Jutland.

Music:  Joakim Brodén

Lyrics:  Pär Sundström & Joakim Brodén

  

A shadow moves across the water in pursuit

It splits the waves, commands the sea and defies the wind

Instilling fear among its prey, feels nought for itself

Ahead the sea lies calm awaiting the storm

 

Displace the water in its path

Reveal the cannons, align the guns, unleash their wrath

 

Unopposed under crimson skies

Immortalized, over time their legend will rise

And their foes can’t believe their eyes, believe their size, as they fall

And the Dreadnoughts dread nothing at all

 

A hull of steel and all big guns to serve the fleet

Unrivalled firepower riding the waves to war

A devastating blow will send their foes down below

Fearless armada now bombarding their shore

 

Light up the night when cannons roar

In fear of nothing, they lead the navy into war

 

The North Sea has drawn them near

The Fleet of the High Seas approach

A contest of titans commence

These days will dictate their fate

The Grand Fleet prepares their guns

Unleashed as the Dreadnoughts clash at last
