Krokus – Burning Bones lyrics

In a restaurant

Drinkin' beaujoulais wine

You're with your favourite girl
And you're passin' the time

Well, you look through the paper

Five bottles later
Holocaust in the roxy

You're lovin' your lady

I can see

I can see
Burning bones of war

Ashes on the floor

There stands a soldier
In a barbed-wire land

The fear of death in his eyes

And a bottle in his hand

But, now the wine he's drinking

It's got the taste of blood

No more plastic war movies

To show him what it's like

I can see

Burning bones of war
I can see

Ashes on the floor

(Guitar solo)

I can see

Burning bones of war
I can see

Ashes on the floor
