Fast as the wind the invasion has begun
Shaking the ground with the force of thousand guns

First in the line of fire
First into hostile land
Tanks leading the way
Leading the way

Charging their lines with the force of a furious storm
Fast as the lightning phantoms swarm

200 miles at nightfall
Taken within a day
Thus earning the name
Earning the fame

They are the
Panzer elite
Born to compete
Never retreat

Ghost division

Living or dead
Always ahead
Fed by your dread

Always ahead as the blitzkrieg rages on
Breaking morale with the sound of blazing guns

First in the line of fire
First into hostile land
Tanks leading the way
Leading the way

Leaving a trail of destruction through a foreign land
(Waging war with conviction)
Massive assault, live to serve the Nazi plan
(Wehrmacht's pride, ghost division)

Communications broken
Phantoms too far away
Thus earning the name
Earning the fame

They are the
Panzer elite
Born to compete
Never retreat

Ghost division

Living or dead
Always ahead
Fed by your dread

Pushing the frontline forth with a tremendous force
(Far ahead, breaks resistance)
Breaching the way for panzer corps
(Show no fear, self-subsistent)

First in the line of fire
First into hostile land
Tanks leading the way
Claiming the fame

They are the
Panzer elite
Born to compete
Never retreat

Ghost division

Living or dead
Always ahead
Fed by your dread

Panzer elite
Born to compete
Never retreat

Ghost division

Living or dead
Always ahead
Fed by your dread

Trivia:

As the German Wehrmacht invaded France in 1940, Erwin Rommel and his 7th Panzer division set a new record for the longest thrust in one day, covering 200 miles. Not even the German high command could keep track of where they were located at all times during the French campaign, due to their speed and their ability to appear where they were least expected. They were given the name: Ghost Division.
