Information

  • Never played live.
  • Altough the official website historic fact states that the song was written from the perspective of Radovan Karadzic, Joakim Brodén in one of the interviews said it was written from Milosevic's perspective.[1]

Historic fact

Written from the perspective of Radovan Karadzic, the former President of The Republika Srpska, head of the Serbian Democratic Party (SDS) and commander of the Bosnian Serb Army, from 1991 to 1995. In an act of vengeance over the 1992-1995 killings of 2,383 Serbian civilians in and around Srebrenica by neighboring Muslims and in pursuit of his vision of a unified Serbian state without Muslims, Radovan Karadzic orchestrated the Srebrenica Massacre where every male Muslim between the ages of 12 and 77 was captured, executed and burned en masse.

Lyrics

I've had a vision, it's clear to me now
I know what has to be done
Different religions cannot share a land
A plague, and I have the cure

Chase them down, let them suffer in pain
Dig them down, they'll be gone for a while
Evidence lost

We burn
Plunder and rape
Show them no mercy, just burn
Flesh turn to ash

Inspired by deeds that were done long ago
I know what has to be done
Filth of my land must be washed clean and pure
Now let the cleansing begin

Genocide?
Who will drag me to court?
There's no crime if you do not get caught
I am the law. We burn!

Privates, sergeants and generals hear
It's our chance we've been waiting too long
Your orders are: to start to burn
