lyrics

Soldiers came.
Soldiers stopped him in the road.
Soldiers came.
Soldiers stopped him in the road.
Soldiers told him to forget what he believed.
They called it progress, manifest destiny.

You must decide, the soldiers said,
To join the righteous or your head is in the way.
Give up your pride, the soldiers said,
Give up your language, or your head is in the way.

Soldiers came.
Soldiers stopped him in the road.
Soldiers came.
Soldiers stopped him in the road.
Soldiers said that their campaign was higher law.
They must extinguish the evil that they saw.

You are to blame if you keep up your wicked ways.
That makes your neck the price you pay.
Your family name depends on everything you say
Or else their heads are in the way.

God bless the Holy Roman Empire
God bless the Holy Roman Empire
God bless the Holy Roman Empire
God bless the Holy Roman Empire
Soldiers came.
Soldiers stopped him in the road.
