Anthem - Chess

No man, no madness
though their sad power may prevail,
can possess conquering country's heart,
they rise to fail.
She is eternal
long before nation's lines were drown.
When no flags flew,
when no armies stood,
my land was born.
And you ask me why I love her
through wars, death and despair,
she is the constant,we who don't care.
And you wonder will I leave her,
but how?
I cross over borders
but I'm still there now.

How can I leave her?
Where do I start?
Let man's pretty nations
tear themselves apart.
My land's only borders
lie around my heart.

Ur musikalen “Chess “
