Insanity Commands (Hail of Bullets)

An absurd order given Sheer astonishment Organize new defense lines With shattered regiments Fight to the last bullet Never to withdraw Approval of the death sentence Berlin's will is law Rejecting the final ultimatum All forbidden to negotiate A threatening liquidation of an army Still refusing to capitulate Leading their men to contine the fight Comfortable generals in warm barracks In the open fields their soldiers die Blood on filthy hands Insanity commands Recruiting the starving and the crippled Crimping the wounded and the diseased Executing the looting amputated Closing cruel eyes for their infamy Praising the emaciated faces Lots of decorations but no bread Frozen human flesh amongst the ruins Cannibals consume the burning dead A pathos of treason Blood on filthy hands Till the last convulsion Insanity commands
