All Quiet on the Western Front

$6.99

By now, the war is nearing its end and the German Army is retreating. In despair, Paul watches as his friends fall one by one. It is the death of Kat that eventually makes Paul careless about living. In the final chapter, he comments that peace is coming soon, but he does not see the future as bright and shining with hope. Paul feels that he has no aims or goals left in life and that their generation will be different and misunderstood. When he dies at the end of the novel, the situation report from the frontline states, "All is Quiet on the Western Front," symbolizing the insignificance of one individual's death during the war.

All is quiet tonight
The stars are in their places
The moon will give us light

To see into each other's faces
And I know the road is hard
But if we carry on together
We will get by

We live our lives
In the eye of a hurricane
We cast our fates
On seas of indifference

But all along the shoreline
We look for a chance to believe
The darkness will fade
And the promise will survive
Until I hear you say

All is quiet tonight
The stars are in their places
The moon will give us light

To see into each other's faces
And I know the road is hard
But if we carry on together
We will get by

We make our way
Through streets full of danger
We build up the walls
To keep us inside
But oh, they keep us apart


'Til we become
The worst kind of stranger
Who stands with open arms
And barricades the heart
And still I hear you say

All is quiet tonight
The stars are in their places
The moon will give us light

To see into each other's faces
And I know the road is hard
But if we carry on together
We will get by

All is quiet tonight
The stars are in their places
The moon will give us light

To see into each other's faces
And I know the road is hard
But if we carry on together
We will get by

All is quiet tonight
All is quiet tonight
All is quiet tonight

We will get by
All is quiet tonight
We will get by
All is quiet tonight
