The War to End All Wars

"The Unkillable Soldier"

 

Sir Adrian Carton De Wiart was of Belgian heritage but fought for the

British Empire during WW1.  Being injured multiple times,

 he became known as the “Man who could not be killed.”

Music: Joakim Brodén

Lyrics: Pär Sundström & Joakim Brodén

  

Into the fire through trenches and mud

Son of Belgium and Ireland with war in his blood

Leading the charge into hostile barrage

By design, he was made for the frontline

 

Studied law, with a thirst for war

Fought in Africa, wanted more

Back in Europe then straight to France

He’s joining the allied advance

 

Through the Somme and the Devil’s Wood

All the battles that he withstood

Born a soldier enjoyed the war

He always kept coming for more

 

Never die, shot through the eye

Never surrender however they try

How they try, shot through the eye

He’ll never die

 

At the edge of madness, in a time of sadness

An immortal soldier, finds his home

Proven under fire, over trench and wire

No fear of death he’s unshakeable

 

In the battles, when he was shot

Kept on fighting, and never stopped

In Arras, Cambrai, Passchendaele

Ignoring his wounds he prevailed

 

Save the day, he’ll never stray

Facing the foes that are coming his way

Come his way, he’ll never stray

Saving the day

 

At the edge of madness, in a time of sadness

An immortal soldier, finds his home

Proven under fire, over trench and wire

Forged for the war he’s unbreakable

At the edge of madness, he will show no sadness

Never broken, he’ll be back for more

Proven under fire, over trench and wire

No fear of death he’s unshakeable

 

Edge of madness!

No fear of death, he is forged for the war, he will always be coming for more
