SABATON – The Red Baron (Official Lyric Video)


High above all the blood and mud of the battlefields
There was another war going on. A war for superiority in the air between
The daredevils of the sky, known as the aces. Among them one man and his plane stand out. The Red Baron Man and machine
And nothing there in between A flying circus
And a man from Prussia The sky and a plane,
this man commands his domain The western front
and all the way to Russia Death from above, you’re under fire Stained red as blood, he’s roaming higher Born a soldier
From the horseback to the skies That’s where the legend will arise And he’s flying Higher, the king of the sky He’s flying too fast
and he’s flying too high Higher, an eye for an eye The legend will never die First to the scene he is a lethal machine It’s bloody April and the tide is turning Fire at will it is the thrill of the kill Four in a day shot down
with engines burning Embrace the fame, red squadron leader Call out his name Rote Kampfflieger In the game to win,
a gambler rolls the dice 80 Allies paid the price And he’s flying Higher, the king of the sky He’s flying too fast
and he’s flying too high Higher, an eye for an eye The legend will never die Higher! Higher, the king of the sky He’s flying too fast
and he’s flying too high He’s flying higher, an eye for an eye The legend will never die Higher! Born a soldier,
from the horseback to the skies And the legend never dies And he’s flying And he’s flying And he’s flying Higher, the king of the sky He’s flying too fast
and he’s flying too high Higher, an eye for an eye The legend will never die Higher, the king of the sky He’s flying too fast
and he’s flying too high Higher, an eye for an eye The legend will never die

  2. Anyone else getting a Night Witches vibe out of this? The two songs – once they start – sound so similar! (Not that I'm complaining. I'll still headbang either way)

  3. The Red Baron

    Man and machine and nothing there in between
    A flying circus and a man from Prussia
    The sky and a plane, this man commands his domain
    The western front and all the way to Russia

    Death from above, you're under fire
    Stained red as blood, he’s roaming higher

    Born a soldier from the horseback to the skies
    That's where the legend will arise

    And he's flying

    Higher, the king of the sky
    He’s flying too fast and he's flying to high
    Higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die

    First to the scene he is a lethal machine
    It's bloody April and the tide is turning
    Fire at will it is the thrill of the kill
    Four in a day shot down with engines burning

    Embrace the fame, red squadron leader
    Call out his name, Rote Kampffieger

    In the game to win, a gambler rolls the dice
    Eighty allies paid the price

    And he's flying

    Higher, the king of the sky
    He's flying too fast and he's flying to high
    Higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die

    Higher
    Higher, the king of the sky
    He's flying too fast and he's flying to high
    Higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die

    Higher

    Born a soldier from the horseback to the skies
    And the legend never dies

    And he’s flying
    And he’s flying
    And he's flying

    Higher
    Higher, the king of the sky
    He’s flying too fast and he's flying too high
    Higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die

    Higher
    Higher, the king of the sky
    He's flying too fast and he's flying too high
    Higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die

  4. Richtofen: I have been called many names, "The Terror of the skies", "The Butcher of the air" but the world and history will forever know me as 0:21

  5. We need a song about Erich “Bubi” Hartmann: the White Knight. 352 kills, more than any pilot in history. Even prevailed through 10 years in a Soviet gulag and returning home to fly in the West German Air Force.

  6. I've always wondered HOW the hell do machine guns mounted BEHIND the propeller, don't hit the propeller when firing.

    Higher, an eye for an eye
    The legend will never die

  8. When you have a sniper rifle in bf1 and yeet some random plane from the ground

    Red baron: Sad german noises

  9. I don't understand where "red squadron" is coming from? that shit is from star wars, not Die Luftstreitkräfte!

  10. I love Sabaton
    They always honor hero’s
    But the Red Baron was not
    He was a legend but to the Germans alone
    Unlike the movie would have you believe he was not a gentleman of aces he was a German with bloodlust
    He didn’t show mercy
    He didn’t believe in “we shoot down aeroplanes not men” as the movie would have you believe
    A quote from the baron himself states something like “I don’t enter the aero plane for fun when I do I aim for the pilots head”
    He was the best bcus of his marksmanship
    No doubt he was the ace of aces and king of the skies
    But as an American he’ll never be my hero
    With 80 confirmed allied deaths under his gun he was just another German butcher to me

  11. And why don’t you sing the legendary exploits of German ace tankist Mickael Wittmann? His attack on June 13, 1944 at Tilly-sur-Seulles remains a feat. Supported by two tiger tanks that remained on the heights of the village, he destroyed the vanguard of a British regiment by slowly climbing the enemy column while firing his formidable gun of 88 !
    You would make a terrific song about an extraordinary mechanical epic !

  12. On the album version, part of the intro is from Harpsichord Concerto No.1 in D Minor (BWV 1052) by J.S.Bach¹. The verse [0:22] is from Easy Living by Uriah Heep². The bridge [0:42] is from Keeper of the Seven Keys by Helloween³, but MAN I cannot remember where the chorus [0:51] is from!! If you do, please let me know 🙂

  13. This is a thing I've never known before

    It's called easy flyin'

    This is a place I've never seen before

    And I've been forgiven

    Easy flyin' and I've been forgiven

    Since you've taken your place in my triplane

    … Oh wait.

  14. Lanoe Hawker: flies HIGH above all the blood and mud of the battlefield
    Manfred von Richthofen: "Ich bin kurz davor die ganze Karriere dieses Mannes zu beenden."

  15. Anyone that decided to go into the sky is a ace in my eyes. They had balls to get into the sky and not have a parachute.

  16. When you dominate in your plane on battlefield 1 and maybe avoid me on the pom pom guns or giant fort guns

  17. Technically the allies were Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary and the 80 kills were from the triple entente but oh well. Still very good song.

  18. Gotta love the verse part on this track and how they put so much information just in a couple of seconds. And the chorus and the jamming later in the song. This is quickly turning into my favourite track on the album!?

  19. Nach 80 Abschüssen zog er in die Walhall ein, um nicht die tiefste Erniedrigung seines Vaterlandes überleben zu müssen…

  20. Why is a fashistic plane is in a video?
    Хотел сходить к вам на концерт, то теперь..

  21. Ok, Red Baron was good, but remember that Snoopy (yeah the dog) beat him in the PS2 game.
    So… I demand a song about Snoopy right now.

  22. Okay
    The Bismarck is the king of the ocean.
    The Red Baron is the king of the sky.
    But who is the king of the land? At any rate, it looks like we Germans are the kings of the sky and the ocean.😁😁
