The Lake Ladoga Massacre (Hail of Bullets)

One last natural obstacle The Luga river crossed Determined to take Leningrad No matter the cost Not the final storm attack Awe and disbelief Build up the surrounding A city under siege Man the ramparts And the barricades Attempts fail to break Through this blockade In a circle of hostility Easy target for artillery Intruder fire Comes from everywhere Inhabitants Completely unprepared Provision depots go up in flames Replenishments burn down Whilst on their way Stocks increasing, low rations In the clasp of starvation Famine stirs up apathy Hunger seals their destiny Skeletons once humans Consuming saw-dust bread Meal of glue a substitute As they starve to death With all windows broken It begins to freeze Starvelings collapsing Bodies pave the street Over Lake Ladoga Logistics on the ice Evacuate the wounded Bringing in supplies 900 days it lasted The brutal cruel bloodshed The massacred children Never to forget
