Rotterdam Blitz, 14th of May 1940

On this day we remember the bombing of Rotterdam 73 years ago and the heroic actions of the Dutch Marines.

Lest we forget!

The Fire Boundary

Paratroopers dig in, a city under siege
A call of duty, hunt down the enemy
In man-to-man combat, black devils stand firm
Halting the advance at the core region of Fortress Holland

When war reaches stalemate the order is given

Chorus:
A catastrophic inferno, devoured by flames
All will be incinerated inside the fire boundary

Diving Stuka planes sound the trumpets of Jericho
An ominous payload, about to pour from the sky
(The drone of) Heinkel bombers, sirens scream, rain of terror
To break resistance and precipitate the Dutch surrender

When war reaches stalemate the order is given

Chorus

BURN

Civilians flee while history is reduced to smoldering debris
A strong wind stirs up the fire, the heart is ablaze

Chorus

BURN

Falling prey to the flames, forever confined to the fire boundary
