Lest We Forget

The lyrics of "In Flanders Fields" are not only inspired by the famous "In Flanders Fields" poem by John McCrae but also by Rimbaud's "Le Dormeur Du Val".

Geert Fieuw : "When looking for inspiration, we just have to look around to our history, to what happened in our region : Flanders has always been Europe's battlefield ..
After the Great War, Flanders had become one of the poorest regions in Europe.... The iconoclasts ? The Spanish Inquisition ? guess where they happened ....

I wrote these lyrics not only because my family comes from the region but also to prove that intelligent "metal" and "hard rock" lyrics can be written - instead of the typical macho call-for-war adrenalin-fed hero-praising lyrics we show the human side, the common man that suffers regardless of his nationality or origin."

I remember the battlefield -the trenches and the mud and cold
the dead man´s rats in no man´s land -no one in here is getting very old

I remember the yellow cloud and the panic of the fleeing crowd
men mired in a shell hole - as they launch another attack

In Flanders Fields where the poppies grow so red
where soldiers die - side by side -under a foreign sky
In Flanders Fields only poppies could survive
Half a million men gave their life - half a million young men came to die

to conquer the nearest hill - to break out from the salient
so high the stakes - so dear the cost
as I watch another man fall

In Flanders Fields where the poppies grow so red
where soldiers die - side by side -under a foreign sky
In Flanders Fields only poppies could survive
Half a million men gave their life - half a million young men came to die

Christmas brought a miracle - a little bit of peace
putting a face on the enemy -these blokes all have a name

Billy, Guillaume or Wilhelm - these guys are in it just like me ..
Now it´s getting cold - it´s getting dark
as I lay here dying ...

-guitar solo (Frédéric Ost)-

In Flanders Fields where the poppies grow so red
where soldiers die - side by side -under a foreign sky
In Flanders Fields only poppies could survive
Half a million men gave their life - half a million young men came to die

In Flanders Fields where the poppies grow so red
where soldiers die - side by side -under a foreign sky
In Flanders Fields only poppies could survive
Half a million men gave their life - half a million young men came to die

Trivia fact : Grammatically, "In Flanders' Fields" including an apostrophe, would be more correct.
