Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

See my spirit on the wind
Across the lines, beyond the hill
Friend and foe will meet again
Those who died at Paschendale

Blood is falling like the rain
Its crimson cloak unveils again
The sound of guns can't hide their shame
And so we die on Paschendale

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
Running straight at cannon fire
Running blind as I hold my breath
Say a prayer symphony of death

As we charge the enemy lines
A burst of fire and we go down
I choke a cry but no-one hears
Feel the blood go down my throat

Crucified as if on a cross
Allied troops they mourn their loss
German war propaganda machine
Such before has never been seen

Swear I heard the angels cry
Pray to god no more may die
So that people know the truth
Tell the tale of Paschendale

Cruelty has a human heart
Every man does play his part
Terror of the men we kill
The human heart is hungry still

I stand my ground for the very last time
Gun is ready as I stand in line
Nervous wait for the whistle to blow
Rush of blood and over we go

end of us all

Whistles, shouts and more gun fire
Lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire
Battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb
Be reunited with my dead friends soon

Many soldiers eighteen years
Drown in mud, no more tears
Surely a war no-one can win
Killing time about to begin

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

The bodies of ours and our foes
The sea of death it overflows
In no man's land, God only knows
Into jaws of death we g

In a foreign field he lay
Lonely soldier, unknown grave
On his dying words he prays
Tell the world of Paschendale

Relive all that he's been through
Last communion of his soul
Rust your bullets with his tears
Let me tell you 'bout his years

Laying low in a blood filled trench
Kill time 'til my very own death
On my face I can feel the falling rain
Never see my friends again

In the smoke, in the mud and lead
Smell the fear and the feeling of dread
Soon be time to go over the wall

Have you ever noticed that the songs like this aces high the trooper and so on have a historic tale within the song and it is the base player who writes the music for iron maiden

I am always impressed by bands that choose to do historical songs. Iced Earth is the only other band that I know which can pull it off very well.

The correct spelling is Passchendael e for those who are wondering... a rare song, and a great one, about one of the bloodiest battles of WWI. http://en.wi k i p e d i a . o r g / w i k i / B a t t l e _ o f _ P a s s c h e n d a e l e

This is truly a brilliant masterpiece of music, doubtless would probably go down in history forever as a genre-defini n g work of art, except that so many of Iron Maiden's songs can also fit that category...

My favorite and the best Maiden song.

This is one of my favorite songs of theirs!! It's totally epic and one of the best! Iron Maiden rocks!

Paschendale and the title track are the best songs on an already great album (with the exception of "Gates of Tomorrow").

I thought the song was winding down. When I checked how much time was left, I saw that it wasn't even halfway over! Simply epic.

Probably their best song in their last 3-4 albums. Love it.

One of those rare songs that paints a picture so vivid and so haunting that it's spellbinding . You can't help but get lost in thought listening to this.

This is very good for being one of their newer songs. Still, I think Bruce's voice needs to be pushed back a little and given some more reverb. I miss the Somewhere in Time Days.
