For All Our Tomorrows Puzzle Logo
Track List Menu

The next three tracks on the album try to reflect on the story so far, as the war moved into its final stages. For All Our Tomorrows looks at the soldier's view as the Allies push the Nazis back across once occupied territories, and back across the Rhine into Germany.

Mid-August sees the Allies push on after Falaise to create a broad front from the English Channel to the south. Operation Anvil (Allied Invasion of Southern France) is a success, and Paris is liberated and the French resistance rise against the Nazi retreat. Four years of occupation under Nazi rule is ended.

But Hitler unleashed his secret weapons, named "Vergeltungswaffen" - Vengeance Weapons by the Nazi propaganda machine, as his army is beaten and pushed back. Its an attempt to turn the war around and back in favour of the Nazis. The British people brace themselves for another onslaught like they experienced in the Blitz, this time by the V1 rocket, nicknamed the 'Doodlebug'.

When the threat of the V1 ceased, another secret weapon is unleashed and this time its not only British cities that fall victim to this unstoppable, silent and deadly threat, Wernher von Braun's rocket, which is better known as the V2, but also many thousands of POW's from the slave camps that the SS used in the production of this terror weapon.

 

"To build a cenotaph, first chose a million victims."

 

Soldier 1: "I don't want to die!"
Soldier 2: "You might have to."
Soldier 1: "I DON'T WON'T TO DIE!!!"
Soldier 2: "You might bloody well have to chum!"

The dead zone is where they go
Scared and all alone.
The dead zone is a wasteland boys
a long way from home.

For all our tomorrows, for all our sorrows.
For all our yesterdays, and yesteryears gone by.

The wasteland is where they know
brave men turn to stone.
The wasteland is a death zone boy
a long way from home.

For all our tomorrows, for all our sorrows.
For all our yesterdays, and yesteryears gone by.

 

On fade out V1 'Doodlebug' sound effect flying. Silence. Explosion of the V1 rocket.
