Dreadnoughts, The - Gavrilo Lyrics




Hello my dear old friend
Good to see your face again
How is your little cell?
And do they treat you well?

The last time that we met
Your blood was running hot
Your handshake it was fine
You're happy then you're not
Gavrilo you're mine

The silver bullet would not miss
There was a poison in that kiss
Come on, come on, come on
Take my hand, my hand
Gavrilo

Now tell me how it feels
To see it all revealed
To see the world aflame
A curse upon your name
Machines that never quit
Obscenity and sin
I hope you will permit
This crooked little grin

No matter how your good book reads
In the beginning was the deed
Come on, come on, come on
Take my hand, my hand
Gavrilo

Did you ever wonder how you got your name?
And why the people here all look the same?
The angel Gabriel appeared, they got his message loud and clear
And now they're on their knees, crying father please
They wallow in disease, and sing in minor keys

No matter how your good book reads
In the beginning was the deed
Come on, come on, come on
Take my hand, my hand
Gavrilo

Dreadnoughts, The Gavrilo Comments
  1. Bill T

    These guys are the Polka version of Sabaton

  2. Randall Johnson's Barbecue

    I'm beginning to get a "history nerd" vibe from these guys.

  3. liski100

    "our shadows will walk around Vienna, wandering around the court and scaring the gentlemen" Gavrilo Princip.
    Sloboda ili smrt!!

  4. Ryan Murray

    As someone obsessed with World War 1, I love this album and this song in particular.

  5. Lilith Lovett

    Archduke Franz Ferdinand: *exists*


    Gavrilo: "I'm about to end this man's whole career"

  6. Henrique Pacheco

    The whole "take my hand" thing really hits if you remember the name of the organization Gavrilo was a part of.

    Ethan Wild

    i'm an idiot, explain

    Henrique Pacheco

    @Ethan Wild The "Black Hand" is the popular name of the Serbian secret military society "Unification or Death", widely believed to be involved in/behind the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Gavrilo, the shooter, was one of its members.

  7. Submarine in the Sky

    I had to listen to this a few times before I realized this was about Gavrilo Princip

    Soli Deo Gloria

    bruh how many gavrilos do you know

    DiscordChaosGod

    Not only that, I'm pretty sure it's about the devil coming to take Gavrilo to hell

  8. Abu _

    more underestimated band ever
    i love all your songs
    i love the lyrics <3

  9. Karonte Quinto

    Just one bullet shoot in Sarajevo and the world changed with bloody results...

    Sirius

    @Dabi The same argument can be made about Germany

    Austin Paradiso

    Princip shot twice, actually.

    Kenny F93

    It just wasn't him there was 5 other people involved with the assassination. Čabrinović threw a bomb at him but it bounced of the car and exploded the other car behind Franz then he swallowed a cyanide pill and jumped into a river but the cyanide was old and the river wasn't deep. The other 4 were armed with pistols and bombs but they didn't act. Princip didn't intend to shoot Sophie but rather Governor Potiorek. The whole assassination plan was coordinated by Danilo Ilić who was a member of the black hand secret society.

    Ryan Murray

    @Dimitrije6500 :D This is very true. He was a spark to very dry tinder if not him it would have been something else.

    Ryan Murray

    Gods I love seeing threads like this one. It gives me hope.

  10. Alejandra García

    A friend of mine recomend me this band, I'm not disappointed, I love this song in particular

  11. Harley Davidson

    Rest in peace claudio, this is my remember song..... thanks for that bittersweet song

    Hello my dear old friend
    Good to see your face again
    How is your little cell?
    and do they treat you well?

    The last time we met
    Your blood was running hot
    Your handshake it was fine
    You're happy then you're not
    Gavrilo you're mine

    The silver bullet would not miss
    There was a poison in that kiss
    Come on, come on, come on,
    Take my hand, my hand
    Gavrilo

    Now tell me how it feels
    To see it all revealed
    To see the world aflame
    A curse upon your name
    Machines that never quit
    Obscenity and sin
    I hope you will permit
    This crooked little grin

    No matter how your good book reads
    In the beginning was the deed
    Come on, come on, come on,
    Take my hand, my hand

    Did you ever wonder how you got, your name?
    And why the people here all look, the same?
    The angel Gabriel appeared, they got his message loud and clear
    And now they're on their knees crying father please
    They wallow in disease
    And sing in minor keys

    No matter how your good book reads
    In the beginning was the deed
    Come on, come on, come on,
    Take my hand, my hand
    Gavrilo
    Opa!

    @Slif Monstier Im fasicist? :'D
    Lol what and irony. I have now comment peace

    Slif Monstier

    @HoldMyBeer Extreme Nationalistic Ideals accompanied with call out to murder of opposing parties. Glorification of individuals for crimes like murder. Yeah you are quite fascist.

    Dotar Sejuk

    @HoldMyBeer Jeez, calm down. I just said that Merkel and Clinton certainly don't warrant assassination and that Merkel is not bad. Saying they have bad evil leaders (I also don't know who "they" is, Germans/Americans?) really doesn't refute my point at all...

    HoldMyBeer

    @Dotar Sejuk lol if u think they are not we have nothing to talk about. Westerns

    Dotar Sejuk

    @HoldMyBeer Being unable to substantiate your opinions with evidence is usually a sign of being wrong...



    But you're right that we have little to talk about considering you're barely literate. I don't believe in belittling people when they're trying to speak a language that is not their first but man, you could put atleast some effort into trying to explain what you want me to believe.
